What a wonderful way to travel! I was lucky enough to be allowed to sit next to the pilot for the flight so could fully enjoy the spectacular views of both the mountains and sea. The staff at the harbour were very friendly and helpful. There are also complimentary coffee and snacks while you wait for your flight.

Way better than the ferries. My goodness you can get from Nanaimo to Vancouver or visa versa in 20 minutes! Downtown to downtown. They often have specials so if your flexible to the exact time of day you can go way cheaper.

A very fast, convenient way on and off the Island. A great way to see the scenery around Vancouver Island.

Most impressed by their small, friendly company. Knowledgeable staff, great pilot and WAY CHEAPER to fly from Nanaimo to Vancouver than the other major carrier.

Good service to the island; transport as well as scenic views, if it is a clear day. Ferry is for cars and for a slow crossing. The "float plane's is the most efficient way of getting about the islands.

As a frequent traveller to the US, the best way to get from Nanaimo to the airport in Vancouver, is Harbour Air. Frequent flights, very professional staff, both pilots and ground staff and competitive rates make the 20 minute ride a great option. Harbour Air also has a shuttle to both terminals at YVR.

The connection from Vancouver airport to the Harbour Air terminal is by convenient private bus, and the terminal itself is a great place to hang out. The restaurant itself was worth a visit, never mind being a terminal for a flight. The flights themselves... More
