Cloud 9 Seaplanes is Queensland Travel with a Difference

 In Gold Coast

Think you’ve had your fill of Queensland travel? Time to think again as Cloud 9 Seaplanes allows you to view all the sights of the Gold Coast from a completely different and unique perspective. You have done the Gold Coast theme parks and the beaches, spent time in Surfers Paradise, and now it is time to take your Queensland travel experience to a whole new level!

If you are like most people on this planet you will have never even considered going on a seaplane before, let alone actually travelled on one. When you think about it however, a seaplane is the perfect vehicle on which to explore Australia and especially the Gold Coast area.

Imagine flying through cloudless skies to your very own private island for a picnic. With Cloud 9 Seaplanes that is one of the many amazing adventures you can embark on.

Owned and operated by a family that can trace their flying heritage back to 1915, with Cloud 9 you know you are in the safest hands in the business. Dedicated to tourism and environmental preservation, in equal measures, Cloud 9 operates a 5 seater Cessna aircraft that is stocked full of equipment to ensure the comfort and safety of all who choose to travel with the company. One of the great features about this plane model is that the high wing design allows passengers fantastic unobstructed views of the breathtaking scenery below as you soar through the skies.

Cloud 9 offers you a number of uniquely designed experiences that will help you get the most out of your Queensland holiday. The aforementioned picnic sees you flying for 25 minutes over some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Australia as you travel to your own secluded paradise.

After reaching a private beach on South Stradbroke Island you are free to swim, explore, and eat a delicious seafood meal in complete privacy before the seaplane takes you back to the mainland.

If fishing is more your style then Cloud 9 has a once in a lifetime option for you too. The plane will take you over the Pacific as you check for the best fishing spots from the air. When a location is found you will swoop down and land on the water and fish right off the side of the plane. Though obviously no fish are guaranteed to be caught, the two hour experience is something you will treasure far into the future. It certainly is sea fishing with a difference!

If you just want to enjoy the scenery then there is an option for you too as Cloud 9 offer scenic flights that take in the majestic Pacific Ocean, as well as the islands of Moreton Bay, and the sandy beaches of Surfers Paradise on a viewing tour that offers a little something for everyone.

There are many ways to travel the world, and each offers a little something different. For a truly one of a kind adventure however, Cloud 9 Seaplanes must be added to your Queensland holiday itinerary.

    I know some people will think that a seaplane trip may be a bit pricey but from my experience it’s worth every cent. I’ve done something similar in Sydney and loved it. So if you’re reading this blog and can’t make your mind up – go for it!

      Hi Steve – thanks for taking the time to write a positive comment. The views from Cloud 9 Seaplanes were amazing. Pete was the pilot on the day I went up last month – he was great and pointed out many sites that can’t be seen on the ground.

    What an f**^ng awesome site. It’s not like all the crap you read. I have read your tips and all I can say is that I’m looking forward to being the Red Baron for a day. I live in Cairns and love spending time at the Gold Coast attractions every year. After reading your site, I’ll try something different.

    I live in Ipswich and have been going to the Gold Coast since I was a little girl. I recently stayed in Mermaids Beach on my hineymoon and Mat and I decided to try Cloud 9. We are glad we did as we just didn’t realise how beautiful the Gold Coast is from the air. This trip was a pleasant surprise. As a Queenslander, I recommend the Queensland Holiday Guide for an honest assessment of the Gold Coast. L

    Our early morning flight was by far the best part of our week in Surfers. The flight over Broadwater was awesome – what a location and Cloud 9 has to be the perfect Gold coast attrcation! We were given such fantastic service. Thanks to you and all the team at C9. You rock!

    I can vouch for Cloud 9. The scenery was just awesome. I felt safe and secure and this was easily the best thing I did whilst I was on the Gold Coast.

    Thanks to Cloud 9 for making sure that our engagement was so perfect. The trip was so perfect that Dave proposed to me as we were walking through the Sea World resort. I had no idea! I will cherish that day forever and feel that Cloud 9 were match makers made in heaven!
