    See the beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge, the drama of Alcatraz Island and the lush forest of Muir Woods on a seaplane tour of San Francisco! The beauty of the green and gold hills of wine country and the deep blue expanses of the Pacific Ocean can only be truly appreciated from the air, and your guaranteed window seat will provide unparalleled views of the City by the Bay. The perfect addition to your San Francisco itinerary! The Golden Gate Seaplane Tour will fly you directly out to the Pacific Coast and south to the Golden Gate Bridge. After flying over the bridge, you'll continue your flight over the Financial District and Downtown San Francisco, along the waterfront, Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, then north to Alcatraz, around Angel Island and along the picturesque towns of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito.

    The flight lasts approximately 30 minutes and offers a great balance of sights from Marin to San Francisco.

    We all know that the best superhero ability would be to be able to stop time. Alas, it's impossible (we're mostly certain of this). Photography isn't the same... but it's the closest thing we've got to it. If you're going to do something, do it well. Come down to the Isla Studio and learn the basics of this incredible artform. Not only will you never miss a memory again, your memories will take on an aesthetically pleasing form... no thumbs in front of the lense, in other words. You know, in the early years of photography, philosopher Walter Benjamin criticized the medium as a debasement of art's "aura". What did he know? Photography rules.
