New Seaplane Service Delivers Charterers to Yachts

Seaplane service delivers charter guests to charteryachts

New York-based seaplane company, Fly The Whale, has just introduced service in the Caribbean.

Specifically, they will fly passengers from the airports of San Juan, St. Thomas, and Antigua to the waters of the North Sound, Virgin Gorda, BVI.  
One of the most appealing features of this service is the ability to deliver passengers directly to their Virgin Islands yacht charter vessels straight from the airport, saving them countless hours in transit.

In addition, Fly The Whale is also making  many provisioning runs – delivering fresh seafood, produce and flowers to superyacht vessels at anchor in the sound. According to charter maven Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, the flight service is long overdue.  “Local ferry boats and water taxis run on set schedules and infrequently on weekends,”  says Sheeder. “This new service might just become the most convenient way to get to yachts in the North Sound – particularly in light of the new YC Costa Smeralda marina opening there in the near future.”

Fly The Whale was founded in New York on a simple premise: life is too short for traffic. Long, frustrating drives from the city to places like the Hamptons have been replaced with first-class, hassle-free routes to many NY area destinations, with the East River serving as the primary airstrip for the seaplanes. 

According to the company’s website, the company flies state-of-the-art aircraft, piloted by the industry’s best-trained pilots. All flights are operated in strict accordance with Federal Aviation Administration Part 135 regulations. If  flights are canceled due to inclement weather or maintenance issues, Fly The Whale refunds the fare.
