A Sea of Possibilities

Our wings just got wider! Cape Air's new seaplane service expands our network to include destinations that once lived on a wish list and moves them to reality. With easy, convenient, frequent flights between Tweed New Haven Airport and New York Skyports Seaplane Base (at 23rd Street), or New York Skyports Seaplane Base to East Hampton Airport, you can skip the hassles of traffic, long lines and a ticking clock. Now, you can spend less time getting to your business appointments, to your vacation hotspot or home to your family in a fraction of the time it would normally take by car or ferry. 


Cape Air's seaplane service to East Hampton will start May 27, 2020 and run through September 8, 2020.
With scheduled service, our daily flight options are designed to offer the most flexibility to accommodate your travel plans. Check the most current flight schedules.

The Seaplane Fleet

The beauty and excitement of taking a seaplane flight can mostly be attributed to the aircraft - the Cessna Grand Caravan EX. This spacious, 9-passenger aircraft has the capability to land on either water or land. Every seat is a window seat, offering a spectacular bird's-eye view.
