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.

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.

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
