This was my second experience organizing a hiking trip both involving air charter to and fro Gold River with Air Nootka to hike Hesquiat and Nootka in May of 2014 and 2015 respectively. Cindy's efficient and informative responses made things very transparent and Scott's professional and confident nature made us very at ease. While air travel on the west coast... More

We learned about the mail run as it was on our friend's bucket list. After checking out Air Nootka ourselves we decided it would be a fun adventure to go along with her. We had the most amazing sunny & calm day in November to do so! Before our flight we enjoyed our packed lunch on the patio at Air... More

We had a wonderful flight on the Air Nootka mail float plane, I would thoroughly recommend booking a seat. I'm not a keen fan of flying but my husband and our friend wanted to fly in a float plane and I didn't want to be left behind so I went along too, the flight was fantastic. Our pilot, Doug, was...

Josh took my wife and I for a short flight over the Nootka inlet as we requested. He was very knowledgable about many things on the history of the inlet and the islands. We strongly recommend air Nootka. Very professional on all aspects. Totally worth it.

We were going on a 5 day kayak base camp tour with West Coast Expeditions and decided to take a float plane to and back from the village of Kyuquot, where we met our water taxi for our kayak tour. Our first flight was in the rain and breeze, but the pilot (Josh) helped make us feel at ease on... More

Absolutely first class experience. Very safe and professional. I felt at ease and excited. The pilot showed us around and took us for a bit of a tour of the Nootka trail that we were embarking on. I love how great their service was, awesome to be in a small town and have such a great experience.

My friend and I joined Air Nootka on one of their regular mail delivery flights to remote villages along the Pacific Coast of Vancouver Island. Our pilot was great, we happily assisted with mail delivery and met friendly locals. In addition to the gorgeous scenery, we saw a large float of sea otters and a bear from above. What an... More

If you're looking for a floatplane experience, this is it! We wanted to see as many small communities as possible while checking out eastern Vancouver Island on our recent vacation. While searching the Gold River area on the web we found a Mailflight with Air Nootka. We embarked on a flight that left Gold River and followed Nootka Sound out... More
