The open cockpit of the Waco YMF-5 biplane seats the pilot and two side-by-side passengers – perfect for a romantic flight. Look down to catch glimpses of land and sea, and the creatures that inhabit it. Opt for a short 20-minute cruise or choose one of their packages that offer time in the sky with your sweetheart.

Head to a place as unique as your love this Valentine’s Day. Florida is one of just two states in the U.S., and five total places around the world, where coastal dunes are a natural geographic feature. These lakes are typically shallow, irregularly shaped permanent bodies of water. The typically brackish and dark-colored water is due the unique mix of saltwater and freshwater sources. Rent a kayak, canoe, or paddleboard, purchase a combo freshwater/saltwater fishing license, or just relax and enjoy the day at the water’s edge with the one you love.
