  What are seaplanes?

Seaplanes are typically fixed-wing aircraft with a much fewer number of seats and can take off from, and land on, water. These aircraft use a water aerodrome or seaplane base, which is an area of open water used by them (seaplanes), for landing and taking off. Seaplanes are reliable, tough and resilient making these smaller fixed-wing aircraft land on water bodies, gravel and grass easily. They can land in water bodies like lakes, backwaters and dams thus offering easy access to numerous tourist spots as well.
