The Tuross estuary from the air is awesome!
For those that know the south coast, there is nothing that matches the beauty of the Tuross River estuary, and there is no better way to experience it than from the air.
South Coast Seaplanes can take you right to the famous Tuross Head Boatshed or Pickled Octopus Restaurant, where you can enjoy some of the region’s finest produce combined with an amazing flight experience. You can follow the river all the way to Tuross Falls, or take a trip along the coast and experience Montague Island, and combine it with world famous Tuross Oysters and Champagne at the Pickled Octopus. Or we can drop you in to the Tuross Boatshed for an awesome calamari wrap with chipotle (the enduring lunch favorite of SCS pilots) – take in the views of the afternoon sun over the water with a cold beer. Simply the best special occasion experience around.
- Perfect celebration / Gift / Special occasion.
- Prices starting from just $99 per person.
- The ultimate Seaplane experience!
About Tuross Seaplane Flights
Whale Watching Flights
South Coast Seaplane’s home is in the centre lane of the ‘Humpback Highway”. The whale watching season runs from September to November annually, and during their southern migration whales are moving slowly, often with calves and close to the coastline. The waters surrounding Montague Island are rich in krill and close to the edge of the continental shelf, making them a popular feeding ground for whales, especially female whales and their nursing calves.
We can tailor a flight to allow you the best chance to see these beautiful creatures from the air, from where you can see their every move both on and below the surface without disturbing them. Call our friendly team for details.

Montague Island & Bermagui
After departing Forsters Bay we head to sea to explore Montague Island, before heading south, passing Mystery Bay before overflying the famous fishing port of Bermagui. We return to Narooma via the stunning Wallaga Lake, with incredible views of Gulaga along the way.
Mystery Bay & Central Tilba
After departing Forsters Bay, we head south and take in stunning views of the coastline. We will fly over Mystery Bay, named after the mysterious discovery of a wrecked boat whose five occupants vanished in 1880, home to spectacular rock formations and breathtaking beaches. We then track west towards the Tilba region and the Gulaga National Park. Experience the historic township of Central Tilba from the air and fly past Gulaga (Mother Mountain of the Yuin people) before heading back to Narooma and the serene waters of Forsters Bay
Tuross Falls Flights
A seaplane is the perfect way to experience the awesome beauty of Tuross Falls. We depart from the water at either Moruya or Narooma and climb our way into the mountains of the Wadbilliga National Park to the west of the Eurobodalla. As we leave the coast behind us we get amazing views of the rocky escarpments and rugged bushland that mark the edge of the Monaro Plateau. After 15 minutes we reach the Tuross Gorge, and circle to get a spectacular view of the falls. An even more amazing view awaits as we turn: below us the entire Eurobodalla coastline is visible in the distance below. We then begin a gentle descent which follows the river as it meanders from the gorge and through the picturesque Nerrigundah valley and makes its way to the sea at Tuross Head. We then return for a beautiful landing on the water at our departure point.
