Learn to Fly Floats It's near impossible to rent a seaplane, unless you are at a training facility and then they are typically not available unless you have an instructor along. To fly floats you almost need to own a plane. A great way to get started is in a partnership with an experienced seaplane pilot. If you are a seaplane owner, consider taking on a partner and coach them in the ways of seaplane pilots.
This "Learn to Fly" e-book by Max Trescott is not specific to seaplane flying, but it is a good overview of what learning to fly and having a pilot certificate can be about.
