Washington State Waterfront Lodges

This is the year of exploring the beauty of our local region.  Birthdays and anniversaries are extra special when celebrated with a seaplane ride and an amazing weekend at a waterfront lodge. Climb in, grab a window seat and your adventure begins as you glide along the water picking up speed, and you’re off, catching an amazing view of the snow-capped mountains out ahead of you and the glistening water below. Within 25-40 minutes you’re gliding along the water again and up to the dock of your chosen getaway lodge. The kayaks, hiking trails, golf courses, spas, gourmet meals, and fluffy comforters have been waiting for you. Enjoy your escape.   

The below destinations are available via charter only, meaning the aircraft is reserved as a private flight. Kenmore Air Seaplanes are available in three sizes for charter - there are a couple of factors that may determine which aircraft is the best choice for your planned flight:

  • Cessna -180:  2 seats
  • DeHavilland Beaver:  6 seats (5 window seats)
  • DeHavilland Otter:  10 seats

We would love to put together a seaplane charter for your special getaway.  Click the titles to link through to the proprietor's site to reserve your stay. Contact the Charter Department at Kenmore Air once you're ready to plan your flights.

Captain Whidbey Inn

Since 1907, Captain Whidbey has been a locus of natural beauty, community gathering, and quiet, exalted delight. A place where locals and visitors do things together — even if those things are simply eating, drinking, appreciating nature, looking out across the water, feeling alive, feeling grateful. 

Captain Whidbey is the Unofficial Official Lodge of Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve. The gateway to beautiful rugged wilderness, Captain Whidbey fosters a sense of romance and a longing for adventure.

Kenmore Air Seaplanes can charter to this location in the spring, summer & early fall.  The Captain Whidbey Inn pulls their dock in for the winter between October and May.  Please feel free to email us to check on reopening dates for 2022:  [email protected]
