I have been flying with Air Nootka from Gold River to Kyuquot regularly for work over the last two years. The pilots, Dough, Ron and Scott are extremely experienced and no risk-takers. My complete horror of strapping myself helplessly and hopelessly into the float plane seat has turned into a great enjoyment of the 40minute-long trip which I'm looking forward... More

Aug 2014: Our group flew with Air Nootka into the Louie Lagoon to start our 5 day hike to Friendly Cove. For some of our group it was there first flight ever.. The pilot and crew were absolutely awesome!! We felt safe, welcomed and they had a lot of patience with our questions and whining. Could not have asked for... More

We (4 males in their late 20s) booked a fairly last minute hiking trip to Nootka Island, and Air Nootka was easy to find, and coordinate with to arrange a flight in and out of the hike. As schedules changed, they were always a pleasure to deal with, and it was a positive, informative experience every time I called. We... More

Over the past 20 years I cannot count the number of times I have flown with Air Nootka. At least 15 times. They are extremely professional, courteous and accommodating. I would not even hesitate a second in recommending them to anyone.

I took a 35-minute scenic flight tour with Air Nootka on July 2. The whole experience was great. Their staff are extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the area. It was a pleasure flying in the Cessna 185 and I would definitely patronize Air Nootka again when I have friends visiting Vancouver Island.

Thanks for the great service on our Hesquiat Trail Hike in May! We enjoyed the flights in the Beaver and Cessna185. The weather was exceptional and the hike is wonderful. Wolves, bears, sea lions, snakes, eagles and lots of squishy colourful critters in the tide pools. Air Nootka staff are knowledgeable and very helpful regarding the local coastal hiking trails....

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.
