Charter a seaplane with Kenmore Air with a DIY or catered picnic basket, and make your custom-made day at the beach something really special. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, corporate retreats or just a quick get together. Departures from Seattle’s Lake Union or Kenmore Air Harbor on Lake Washington. Private dock departures also available upon request.

For an ultimate experience, Kenmore Air has teamed up with Northwest Floatplane Picnics to provide an unforgettable remote seaplane picnic (choose from 6 menus) on a beach accessible only by air or sea. Sophisticated gourmet food, salty sea air and a scenic seaplane ride to a remote picnic site makes this one picnic you’ll never forget!

NWFP Seattle-area picnics are 2-2.5 hours long and include 15-25 minutes of flying time each way depending on your destination. Choose from Dabob Bay, which is located on Hood Canal, or Blake Island, just southwest of downtown Seattle.

NWFP picnics in the San Juans are 3 to 4 hours long, and include a flight time of about 45-50 minutes each way. Destinations include Sucia Island, located one of the most scenic Marine State Parks offering hiking trails, numerous viewpoints, Madrona forests and intriguing geological formations. There’s also Patos Island, which is a small picturesque island with unusual rock formations and a lighthouse just a short hike from the picnic beach site.
