We took an afternoon flight from Vancouver to Victoria that we booked the night before. The people there are super friendly and very helpful. As others have said, the takeoff and landing and flight as a whole are probably the smoothest you will ever experience. You fly so low to the ground that it is almost like a tour. They provide ear plugs for noise. The flight from Vancouver leaves right out of the harbor (right across the street from the Fairmont Pacific Rim next to the olympic torch). It is very easy to get to and the terminal provides good seating, snacks and drinks for purchase, tv, and free wifi. You only need to get there about 20 or 30 minutes before hand to check in.
***TIP: There is a weight limit (per passenger) on the luggage, however, call ahead and tell them and you can bring your luggage ahead of time and they can place it onboard less full flights and your bags will be waiting for you when you get to your destination (locked away and secure). I would make sure and call the night before. Our flight was at 2:40pm and we just dropped off our luggage at around 10:30 the morning of our flight and it was all sorted perfectly.
