Imagine arriving in Fiji, then heading down to the water to board a private seaplane to wish you and your family away on a low flying scenic flight to your beachfront resort. Sure, you could have taken the boat to your resort, but that only leaves once per day, and you would have had to spend the night in the city to catch it and loose a day of beach time. Then you would have spent 4 hours on a boat hoping no one in your family gets sea sick.

A 30 minute, Turtle Airways seaplane flight is a much better idea, and it take you right to the beach of your resort. Your family will be playing in the beach before you even check in!

And speaking of the beach, Scientists have discovered that not only does the sound of ocean waves create a calming effect, but the wider, less complicated expanses of ocean also reduce the sensory overload we receive each day watching TV, driving a car, or looking at the computer. With less things for your brain to focus on, it is easier to focus on the things that you want to allowing greater creativity, and problem solving skills.
