I hate flying - especially on small planes. So I was dreading this flight, although was comforted by the fact that I was going on a seaplane so it was obviously prepared for a water landing (which doesn't necessarily apply to other planes). Turns out I had nothing to fear - our Harbour Air flight from Vancouver to Victoria was... More

As part of my Vancouver visit I took the plane to Vancouver island. You are given great views of various Islands and water ways along the way. The flight was smooth with clear sky's that day. Well worth the extra expense. I was staying a the Fairmont Waterfront,so it's a short walk to the plane. Ten minutes.

Earlier in the year my husband had business in downtown Vancouver & Victoria. He opted to use Harbour air between the cities and was completely thrilled by the experience. He was able to walk from his Vancouver hotel to catch the flight and after landing in Victoria, walked to his meeting. I was rather jealous after listening to him go... More

I fly with HA for business, I've always had great experiences with HA and today was no different. We checked in for our city tour and due to previous deicing time delays they said be back in 40 minutes. Unfortunately while we were walking around i didn't hear them call, email or text (yup they did all three). Our plane... More

Flew in small de Havilland in Whistler. Absolutely brilliant, best thing in Whistler for us. Saw an old volcano, stunning flight. Had previously cancelled flight in Vancouver due to weather, so as a perfect late September day in Whistler... I think $150 each for half hour, well worth it.

We decided to treat ourselves and the forecast was good for the next day (it had been raining for a few days!) so we called and booked- the booking process was very easy and the staff most helpful.

I love the float plane experience and have travelled between Nanaimo and Vancouver many times. The ground staff and pilots have always been pleasant and professional. They even let you sit up front if you ask and if there is room on an earlier flight, they don't mind moving you ahead. (just be aware that flying depends on weather conditions... More
