“Breathtaking experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

If you have never taken a float plane as a mode of travel you are seriously missing out. I have flown with Harbour Air Seaplanes many times and have been highly delighted every single time. For one thing they have delivered me in 15 minutes to Vancouver Island from the Sunshine Coast which normally would have taken at least 4 - 5 hours by ferry and road. The view is breathtaking. You can never sense of the beauty of the Coast as you can do from the air. The crew are very professional and extremely helpful in assisting of the getting in and out of the plane which as a senior I appreciate. When you take into consideration how much the ferry fares are for cars, plus the meals you eat in transit on a road trip, and the price of gas, the air fare is pretty reasonable. Besides that it is a real thrill!
