Each portion was unique - whoever thought of this was clever & insightful

The meal was presented with unique display. Taste of food were mild yet identifiable. Sea plane was a joy to experience. Front row seat to the sights. Was another unique experience to be seated at the dock/table and watch plane land/take off. Even a resident creature visited, helping to make this experience once of a lifetime.

Sublime experience

We got very lucky. weather was PERFECT the smoke from the bushfires had retreated. Our flight from Sydney to the dock to be ferried to Jonah's was smooth, picturesque and an experience of a life time. Especially the last turn to land back in Sydney. Pilot was professional and gave running commentary as we flew. Jonah's, Stunning location and this was only surpassed by the staff and the deliciously divine food. I would recommend this tour to EVERYONE. It may seem pricey. But I believe it is 100% worth the cost. Best Viator purchase anywhere for any amount. Tony

It's entirely different experiences on sea plane. The take off and landing were nicely done that you don't even feel it. The lunch was a good western restaurant. The view from the restaurant is fantastic and the breeze compliments with food and wine. It's just fantastic!

It was really nice but too short. It could be better with more time for the coffee outside the restaurant or for a walk on the beach.

The problem was that the weather was so bad we had to wait for ninety minutes before the decision was made to go. The meal location was superb, but then we got stranded, as weather was too bad to fly back. We had to wait a further two hours for a car to drive us back and still got charged for the full amount. The pilots were really sorry, but it turned out to be a very long, expensive day. They should have not taken us up.

What an amazing experience! This was a present to my dad for his 70th and it was perfect. Even though we are both Sydney-ites, the view during the whole flight had us awe-struck and amazed. The food was well-presented and tasted delicious. There is nothing I can fault. The highlight for my dad was being able to fly up front with the pilot. Thank you for a wonderful day.
