Explore Boca Grande by Seaplane!


The Gasparilla Inn is pleased to welcome back renowned pilot Mark Futch and Shoreline Aviation to offer guests unforgettable Seaplane Tours.

Locally renowned seaplane operator Mark Futch is back in action and providing seaplane services to the islands near Boca Grande, including Sanibel, Captiva and Useppa. Spend some time on an unforgettable seaplane adventure during your stay with us here at the Inn, and see the turquoise waters that surround Boca Grande from a breathtaking vantage point!

Mark is a passionate aviator, and opened the doors to Boca Grande Seaplane in 1987, which became a premier seaplane operation in Southwest Florida — flying guests to and from the beautiful islands and keys throughout the region. After a short retirement spent fishing and guiding, Mark decided to come back to his true passion and fly seaplanes again with Shoreline Aviation!
