What a perfect day for a seaplane ride! When you factor in time, petrol, food, Harbour Air is less expensive than BC Ferries for a business trip to Victoria. Friendly pilots, humourous safety video and smooth rides both ways, seeing all the islands, it was a most pleasant way to travel.

We wanted to take a seaplane tour of Vancouver during our visit, but sadly there were either none running on the day we wanted or they were fully booked. We went into Harbour Air at the seaplane terminal, and spoke to one of the desk agents who suggested we charter a private plane for the 4 of us. Sceptical at... More

We had limited time in Vancouver, so a 4 hour bus trip to Victoria was not an option. The seaplane trip takes about 35 minutes and the island views around Victoria are breathtaking. The service is efficient in every respect - check in, take-off, timing....like clockwork. Would definitely recommend it. It is not inexpensive, but it is worth every $... More

My husband so wanted to do this seaplane experience. I swallowed down my fear and up, up and away we went. It was worth the cost and something we will probably not get to do again. The view of the harbour and mountains was beautiful and made for a great time. I asked the pilot when drink service would begin... More

Did the extended panorama tour carefully time for good evening weather. Great lighting across down town Vancouver and great to fly in between the mountains. Very laid back company. 14 seater DH111 Otter was only half full so you easily get views out if both sides of the plane. Overall a great early evening treat on a fine evening

I had to attend a business meeting in Victoria and decided to take the opportunity to try this relatively new route. I'm glad I did! The convenience cannot be overemphasized.

My favorite flight - Vancouver to Victoria (and visa-versa) with Harbour Air. This time I was co-pilot with Pilot John.

We considered this an excellent service. Took the 30min tour of Vancouver, just turned up and were lucky enough to be in the air within 20mins! Gary our pilot was very good with those in the party who were a bit nervous of flying. Weather was superb and everyone enjoyed the tour immensely. Would highly recommend.

We took a 30 minute tour over Vancouver. We received good service in the departure lounge with refreshments included in the price. The flight was full, but we only booked two days in advance. The weather was good with only a little cloud. The views were superb, and I would highly recommend this trip.
