Some amazing friends invited us for lunch on the waterfront in Vancouver. As we ate they casually asked if we would like to join them on a Harbor Air sightseeing flight that afternoon. We hemmed and hawed for about 0.001 seconds before agreeing to go. The pleasant counter staff at the Harbor Air center offered us complimentary coffee and pastries... More

This service does not fly if the fog rolls in....so it is risky if you have that must get to meeting.....but when it does fly it is a fast and fun way to get from the island to downtown Vancouver Having taken the ferry over to the island (due to the fog and the planes not flying) we really got...

A visitor to Vancouver offered to treat me to a 30 minute panoramic trip around Vancouver on a gorgeous summer day - I have lived here for 44 years but this was a trip of a lifetime taking in views of English Bay, the University of BC, Howe Sound, North Shore mountains and a quick tour of Burrard Inlet.

Was on your flight February 12th, 2015 from Vancouver to Victoria harbour. 3/4 through the flight the pilot had to turn back to Vancouver due to the fog. When we arrived back in Vancouver the pilot said to check in at the desk as they were going to put me on one of their charter flights from the airport. I... More

Conveniently situated next to Canada cruise terminal, the harbour seaplanes made it possible for me to take a day trip over to Vancouver Island speedily and efficiently! The flight was lovely, the plane carried 11 passengers, baggage could be stored on board, and the flight took 35 mins. The view was great, and we even spotted orcas below! I booked... More

AND...ON A CLEAR DAY YOU GET THE MOST SPECTACULAR VIEWS ANYWHERE! You just can't beat the speed and convenience of this service....downtown Vancouver to downtown Victoria. The staff are mostly helpful and pleasant. I love the free newspapers while you are waiting and often they offer free fresh fruit.

I loved the convenience of booking a flight on the May long weekend and avoiding the ferry lineups. The plane landed in Victoria's inner harbor and it was a short walk to the Empress hotel where we were staying. This trip was to celebrate an anniversary and while I wouldn't want to pay the extra cost every time I went... More
