Style File: Seaplane Tours
No matter how long you've lived here there's always something new to explore in South Florida. In tonight's Style File, 7s Belkys Nerey gives us a different view of Miami from a sea plane.
WSVN -- So you've lived in South Florida forever and think you've seen it all. We bet you haven't seen Miami from this view.
Tony Anderson: "Come on down. Let me show you Miami from my perspective."
Pilot Tony Anderson of "Miami Seaplane Tours" will give you a tour of South Florida you'll never forget.
Tony Anderson: "It's the sensation of taking off and landing on the water. That's not something you do every day."
You'll take off in his small seaplane from the waters off Key Biscayne and from there the sky's the limit.
Donny Snediker: "I'm from the Plantation area and I really wanted to get out there and see Miami from a different view and it was awesome."
There are several different tours to choose from like the ultimate Miami tour or a trip over the Everglades.
Tony Anderson: "Make sure you bring your camera with you. Our windows are really clear you get really amazing photos, and relax and enjoy."
You can fly low over the waters of South Beach so you can really see what you're swimming with. You'll buzz close to our city's skyline to view how much it's blossomed.
There's also the chance to fly over the old houses of Stiltsville and discover a real gem Biscayne National park it's as close to Caribbean-style waters you can get here in Miami.
Tony Anderson: "Biscayne National Park is a treasure that many of us don't really participate in it. On our tour you're able to see a great deal of it and appreciate it's beauty and you're able to take it in."
We even got a new look of the fowey rocks lighthouse and reef.
Donny Snediker: "You're right up close to everything. You can see wildlife in the ocean, or reefs, lighthouses."
Kim Kardashian recently took a rid. A little advice, don't wear heels like she did. You will have to walk into the water to get into the plane, but captain Tony will usually carry women to the plane.
So take a ride we bet you'll land with a whole new perspective of Miami.
Donny Snediker: "Wow that was awesome. Let's go back."
Belkys Nerey: "Tour prices start at $150, but if you check their website they usually run some sort of deal. They also do all sorts of events from weddings to birthday parties."
