Flew from Vancouver Harbour to Nanaimo with Harbour Air and they provided an excellent service. Check-in was easy, staff were all very friendly and the short trip was comfortable. Will definitely use them again every time.

I have used harbour air a number of times and really enjoy the convenience and the service! Really disappointed in a recent trip where I was to be picked up from yvr for a flight that was quoted at the wrong time. I checked online to pay beforehand and couldn't find that time so called the reservation line, they said... More

This is one to add to your bucket list! So glad we flew by sea plane to Victtoria. We had fabulous clear blue skies and my husband was asked if he would like to sit up front in the 'co-pilot's seat'! Harbour Air were efficient and the pilot was friendly and chatted to my husband at the appropriate times! The... More

This is the best way to get to Victoria... 30 minute ride to the downtown inner harbour. I will never take the ferry again.

Harbour Air flies out of Coal Harbour as well as the South Terminal of YVR. I suggest that a true "bird watcher" might care to attend Harbour Air's terminal on the middle arm of the Fraser River and watch the float planes from the Flying Beaver Pub which is located within the terminal.

Hello Renegade225, Great comments and thank you for sharing your trade secrets. If you can't make the morning or mid afternoon slot, we also recommend towards the end of our travel day when the sun is setting.

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
