Fly Seaplanes at Kenmore Air Harbor
With 25 aircraft in operation, 52 pilots on staff and more than 250 employees in peak season, Kenmore Air is among the best-known and most respected seaplane operations in the world. They fly an eclectic mix of piston de Havilland Beavers and turbine de Havilland Otters and Cessna Caravans, landing passengers on lakes, harbors, and tarmac among the mist-shrouded fjords and islands of the US and Canadian northwest.
Kenmore Air provides initial as well as advanced training in the world's most popular and proven seaplanes such as the Piper SuperCub, Cessna 180, and legendary deHavilland Beaver. There is no better way to discover the unique freedom of float flying, than in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with the world leader in seaplane operations, Kenmore Air.

Unique Accommodation Facility
On the outskirts of Seattle, we invite you to view school through a new lens. We revitalized Bothell’s first junior high with pure fun in mind; for dining, moviegoing, live music, swimming,
games, shopping and taverns.
No hall pass is needed to explore our multifaceted grounds. Have a handcrafted beverage in the hallway. Order drinks in the Principal’s Office, play pinball in The Woodshop, and forgo the lunch line for casual, sophisticated dining at The Tavern on the Square, surrounded by lush courtyard space in place of concrete. Escape the everyday at the North Shore Lagoon; swimming and South Seas rum drinks await. We invite you to explore the reimagined space around you—all 5.41 acres!
Throughout it all, note the one-of-a-kind artwork, which local artists created based on historical photos and interviews from alumni, families and colorful residents.
To create new memories in our space, we host special all-ages events, such as assorted holiday gatherings and live music.
* Discounts are available for our registered trip members. Reservation information will be provided upon the completion of registration. *
Annual Seaplane Pilots Association Member Meeting 2018
Traditionally the Annual SPA Member Meeting has occurred at the SPA Headquarters or our future home in Winter Haven, Florida. This year we intend to take the Annual Member Meeting on the road
with the intent of geographically providing a greater diversity to the members who wish to attend. As a result the Annual Member Adventure will conclude on Saturday October 6th, 2018 with
the SPA Annual Member Meeting at 3PM PST at the Kenmore Air Harbor Hangar at the Headquarters in Bothel, Washington.
Our intent is to host a banquet after the member meeting where we can enjoy food, friends and share memories of the weeks activities. The cost of the banquet dinner is included in the Adventure registration, those who are just attending the meeting can purchase tickets for the banquet at the meeting.
