A TRULY PRIVATE GETAWAY TO A WATERFRONT LODGE
There’s only one way to improve on a weekend at one of the most renowned and exclusive waterfront lodges in the area: Make the trip itself part of the treat by chartering a private flight aboard one of Kenmore Air’s seaplanes.
Climb in, grab a window seat and your adventure begins as you glide along the water, gaining speed and seeing the city you’ll leave behind during your island escape. You’ll see snow-capped mountains and unforgettable views and less than an hour after leaving the Seattle area, you’ll be gliding atop the water again and up to the dock of the waterfront lodge you’ve picked out for your getaway.
Kenmore Air offers service to Alderbrook Resort & Spa, Captain Whidbey Inn and the Resort at Port Ludlow via its charter service. This means it’s a private flight for you and your guests. Kenmore Air has three different sizes of aircraft for charter service:
- Cessna -180: 2 seats
- DeHavilland Beaver: 6 passengers (5 window seats)
- DeHavilland Otter: 10 seats
