Tailwind Air, a Part 135 seaplane operator, began its first full season of flights between New York Skyports Seaplane Base (6N7) and Fan Pier in Boston Harbor in late March. Flying direct from the easily accessible base at the east end of 23rd Street, the company touts transit times of an hour and 25 minutes, dock to dock.

FLYING Travel Editor Jonathan Welsh had to give it a try.
