seaplane rides in india

India is home to several fun laden adventure sports which take place all across the length and breadth of the country. Seaplanes are powered fixed-wing aircrafts which are capable of taking off and landing on water. They offer a unique flying experience as you take off, not from a runway, but from a water body. Even the landing part has its own advantages as the landing is bumpy and wobbly.

The best part for all you seaplane lovers in India is that one can avail the fun of riding a seaplane in the country. Seaplane as an adventure sport is not so popular in India yet. But seaplanes can be hired in different parts of India. Let’s take a look at some of the places in India which offer amazing seaplane rides.

Kerala

Kerala is known as God’s own country, and the scenic beauty of this green and picturesque state, is a major tourist attraction. There are different ways in which you can explore Kerala. But Kerala Tourism is now offering seaplane rides from three base stations- Trivandrum, Calicut, and Cochin. The route touches Munnar, Bekal, Bolgatty, and other majestic locations.

Mumbai

Seaplane services are widely popular in Mumbai. One can travel to Pune in almost one-fifth of the usual time taken to reach the destination. Seaplanes in Mumbai can also take you to Lonavla and Nashik. The planes take off from Juhu aerodrome and can carry 9 passengers at a time.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Seaplane rides in Andaman and Nicobar Islands connect Port Blair city to Havelock Island, Diglipur, and Barren Island. Andaman and Nicobar administration, in association with Pawan Hans Helicopters Ltd., provides seaplane rides to tourists as well as locals. The magnificent aerial beauty of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands is best viewed from the engrossing vantage point of seaplanes.

Although seaplane rides aren’t really popular in India. But like several other adventure sports, seaplane rides are making strides. On an average, a single seaplane ride would cost you anything between 5000-10,000 INR per person. Efforts are being made in order to popularize seaplanes as a major tourist attraction. As of now, new seaplane destinations are cropping up with old ones introducing fresh trips and rides. Frankly speaking, the seaplane industry is ready to take off in India!
