My wife and I were visiting Vancouver and we both have always wanted to experience flying on a sea plane. We booked a trip to Victoria Island which is an easy 35 minute flight. When you arrive by the Vancouver seawall, it's very easy to locate the building to check in for the flights, since the sea planes are parked... More

It was a cloudy day when we went but that didn't take away from the experience at all. It was fantastic and exciting.

We wanted to get in the best views of Vancouver in the short time we had so we decided to pay the price, $321 for 2 adults & one child, plus a little extra to get the single window seats. The staff was extremely courteous and it turned out to be a great experience. While it is loud the crew... More

I had to go to Nanaimo (Vancouver Island) three times on the same week - I was staying near Chinatown in Vancouver, so the trip by ferry would involve going all the way to Horseshoe Bay, then take the ferry to Nanaimo - more than 2 hours each way. So I've decided to use the seaplanes; that was a very... More

If you have the money (about 114 CAD for a 20 minute tour), do it. That is all I have to say. For the rest, use the complementary earplugs, sit back and enjoy the views. Well worth it when visiting this awesome city!

We took a sea plane flight with Harbour Air out of downtown Vancouver to Nanaimo. This is the first time we had ever been on a sea plane and it's the smoothest plane flight we have had even though it's in a single engine plane. The pilot was friendly, take off on time and landing so smooth you would hardly... More

Our flight to Victoria from Vancouver on the seaplane is an experience I'll always remember. We were fortunate to have a clear, beautiful day, so the views were beyond spectacular. This is a professional operation and is exceptionally well-managed. They even have an inflight safety video presentation on an i-Pad (not sure why, but I found this both amusing and... More

You see them all day long. These float planes charging across the water and, then, lifting up into the skies and the wide blue yonder. Then, you say to yourself, I MUST do that and then you do and then you're NOT disappointed. From check in to debarking, it's a fantastic experience and one which I will not forget in... More

Having seen the seaplanes taking off from the water in front of our hotel we had to investigate further. We took a twenty minute panoramic trip over Vancouver and Vancouver Island which gave us fantastic views of the whole area and the mountains and glaciers beyond. It was a beautiful summers day so visibility was excellent and the flying conditions... More
