Departing from Kingston (Norman Rogers) Airport, immediately after takeoff, you'll be directly over the waters where Lake Ontario flows into the St. Lawrence River. Within minutes, you'll be looking down into the famous Kingston Penitentiary - a view very few get to see.
With the spectacular views of over 80 windmills on Wolfe Island clearly visible, you arrive in downtown Kingston in about 7 minutes.
You'll fly right past downtown Kingston, Fort Henry and Kingston's Royal Military College. A turn just past the causway takes you up the end of the Rideau Canal and the trip returns the same way so that all passengers get a perfect view.
Start with the City of Kingston Tour and continue on past Howe Island and see all the beauty and splendor of the 1000 Islands.
Although this tour remains inside Canada, we fly right along the international border right to the heart of the 1000 Islands in Gananoque. You'll see the thousands of islands, many inhabited and privately owned and many part of the St. Lawrence national park system.
With a u-turn near the OLG Casino in Ganagnoque, this 30 minute tour returns on a slightly different path. We meander back along the southern Ontario shoreline so you can really take in the beauty of the natural lakeshore.
Over 4.5 million people visit the 1000 Islands region annually - many come to experience the beauty of the islands but some come to see the incredible grandure of the many mansions built upon these granite islands.
Inarguably the most famous of all is Boldt Castle. Built by George Boldt in the late 1800s, he abandoned the structure before it was finished when his wife suddenly died.
The castle was rescued and is currently being restored. Since it is located in the USA (Alexandria Bay, NY), to visit by water requires a passport and customs clearance. By air, we don't land so we don't require passports.
Feeling like dropping into see a winery in Prince Edward County? Why not visit Huff Estates Winery in style! Huff Estates boasts a private helipad, winery tours, an exquisite lunch and rooms for an overnight stay.
For birthday parties and other social gatherings, we can take you to the Waring House located near the beautiful town of Picton! Stop in for a local brew and some great live music.
Any of the Tours to Prince Edward County can be one-way or return.
Winter or summer, feel free to ask about a custom tour.
Under Transport Canada rules, a sightseeing tour must takeoff and land from the same location. If we take you somewhere and stop (like our Winery Tours) it technically becomes a charter and certain rules apply.
We have a great deal of flexiblity for landing (golf courses, private lakes, industrial parks, etc) so don't be afraid to ask. We take care of all the paperwork if required by Transport Canada. For most operations, a waiver is not required.
