The Strait of Georgia Seaplane Tour from Nanaimo

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Nanaimo Harbour Air Seaplanes Terminal in advance of your scheduled flight time, and take a seat in your seaplane to begin your flight.
    Soar high through the skies of British Columbia with your pilot, and enjoy sweeping views over the many tiny islands dotting the Strait of Georgia.
    Land in Sechelt — on the Sunshine Coast — and enjoy up to four hours of free time to explore at your leisure. Then, return via seaplane to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island to bring your adventure to an end.

    Booked the 'Straits of Georgia Experience' tour. Be very clear. This is not a tour as most people would understand. This is a return booking on scheduled flights. On the outward leg I was crammed in the middle of three narrow seats and could see...More
