Always a safe and quick way to get back and forth to the mainland; visually the trip is stunning, the waiting rooms and staff wonderful, the pilots friendly and professional. It is a joy flying Harbour Air! I really love leaving from the Richmond terminal and waterfront pub, as its discounted, but landing there you must add on a shuttle... More

We had booked the a tour over the glaciers over the internet, which sounded amazing. There was a one thing which had concerned me slightly about booking. As there was no tours available on the day that we wanted, we had to book the flight ourselves - which meant that there was a possibility that we would have to pay... More

Did you even think about paying a hundred bucks for a 20mins trip which ends up with a pilot yelling at you twice!!!! It is really terrible and I would never recommend this to my friends. The service here is really bad. Seaplane is really a good attraction here, you should try but definitely not with the Harbour Air

We did the mail run at just over $200 each. Not so much a mail run these days more of a taxi. I sat next to the pilot for the first two legs and then reluctantly swapped with a fellow passenger! It was a beautiful clear day but there was still a bit of turbulence but the pilot continued to... More

What a wonderful gift we received from friends for a site seeing flight over Vancouver in a sea plane. The check in and flight experience were both friendly and professional. I can see why they are flying so many flights to nearby locations. Pilot named Calib even took the time to snap a photo of myself and my husband beside... More

My sister and I wanted the Vancouver extended panoramic ...but when I called to reserve a flight they were booked the whole weekend...so the customer service rep added us to a Horseshoe Bay drop off. We got to land twice in the water and went @6:00pm...great time to go near sunset. Our pilot, Jason was great and he let me... More

Flying a seaplane from Vancouver to Victoria is a great and thrilling experience. It's only 35 minutes and in a sunny day, it's a wonderful adventure. If you decide to spend a day in Victoria, this is the way to go.

The 20 minute flight by seaplane over the city of Vancouver and the surrounding bays is a great trip. The Exhilaration of taking off on the sea in a one propellor plane and the views when the plane banks from side to side are great. I recommend
