Safe and intimate short flight from Nanaimo to Vancouver Harbour on a float plane. Much faster way to get to and from the island than the ferry!

We booked the 20 minute Panorama tour over Vancouver and it was well worth the money. We were amongst 14 passengers on the float plane and took off towards Lions Gate Bridge towards Horseshoe Bay, Capilano and back across the Downtown area towards the south of the city before heading back, landing surprisingly gently in the harbour having taken about...

The very best way to get around! It's impossible to watch these .float' planes coming and going across the harbour .... and not want to try them out. We booked in advance for our transfer to Victoria and WOW! what an experience!! Flying across the straits with the hundreds of islands below. 10-12 seater planes make it feel like you're... More

We went by seaplane to Horseshoe bay for dinner at The Boat House restaurant, returning to our Vancouver hotel by limousine. The entire experience was wonderful, even if it rained for most of the time. Booking via the internet was efficient and professional, as was check in. Our pilot was very good and the flight breath taking. We were met... More

Wow! What an amazing experience! We booked the Classic Tour, and saw the mountains up close. The views were so spectacular and the pilot was great! Even though the tour was a little expensive, it is an experience you will never forget.

Booked the extended panoramic tour and had an amazing time! Check in was so easy - I booked using the chat facility on their website - and after we were given our boarding passes we were treated to free tea & coffee and lovely pastries! The flight was incredible and our pilot gave us some great moments, flying between peaks,... More

I must admit I was rather apprehensive about going on a seaplane "joy trip" around Vancouver, but I was "persuaded" by my family and was glad I did the trip. The pilot was very friendly and informative, the flight including take off and landing, smooth. It goes without saying, there were fantastic views.
