As a Flight Attendant for 30 years I am used to traveling on jets but my last weekend jaunt to Nanaimo was top notch as I experienced my first float plane ride.

Great waiting area. Took a quick trip to Victoria and back. They even let someone sit in the co-pilots seat. Smooth and pleasant.

After visiting Victoria and beautiful Vancouver Island, I had to go back to Vancouver to get a flight to Europe. I was recommeded to take a Harbour Air Seaplane from Victoria to Vancouver, and it was worth every dollar. Fantastic views over both Victoria and Vancouver, Strait of Georgia, Baker mountaint etc.

One of those companies that just does it right. If you are buying a ticket at the counter and you can get the fair lower on the internet they will tell you to book your flight on one of their computers on site to get the cheaper fare. If you want a coffee and a snack, its on them. If... More

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
