    Super fun and absolutely worth it!
    Short but excellent. Very much worth the expense! The trip goes around all of Vancouver and surrounding waters and the route retraces itself so both sides of the plane are afforded equal views. This was an impulse buy and I’m super happy I did it!!!

    Definitely worth the price!
    Awesome trip! Seaplane experience was definitely worth it and time saving. Scenery was really good and Butchart gardens was amazing.

    Day trip to Vancouver Island
    We looked at a number of ways to visit Vancouver island and the seaplane over and ferry back was the best option to experience the scenery from the air, land and sea. There was plenty of time in Victoria to see the sites with lunch overlooking the water a highlight. It takes a few hours to walk the streets and waterfront and we took our time.

    A must do list for everyone coming to Vancouver
    Absolutely stunning views of the flight……… the pilot is super nice and I think he has got the best job in the world………if possible we would take more flight in September for the great sunset.

    Best Scenic and quick trip to Butchart Gardens
    What a fantastic way to see the Butchart Gardens! For those with limited time, but don’t want to miss seeing these majestic and world renowned gardens, it is the fastest and most scenic way to get there! We left at 11:30 am, were at the gardens within 35 minutes, had enough time to see the gardens and then were back in Vancouver by 3:05 pm. Highly recommended!!

    Worth it!
    My daughter and I opted for the 20-minute scenic tour and we both thought it was an excellent use of time. We went around some islands before circling the city, and our pilot made sure everyone on both sides of the plane got all the great views. The flight was smooth and everything was handled efficiently. Highly recommend.

    FUN way to travel from Whistler to Vancouver!
    During a recent vacation, my wife and I took a small group tour (bus ride) from Vancouver to Whistler. Instead of returning with the tour group, we boarded the Harbour Air seaplane and flew from Whistler to Vancouver. We loved the 30-minute plane ride with stunning views of the snow covered mountains. The take-off and landing was smooth as butter. We highly recommend this seaplane experience!

    They take the money and run
    Disappointing visit to Victoria this past Thursday. Missed a plane tour by mere minutes (ferry was delayed) and they wouldn’t refund the money or exchange the trip. I was literally parking my car, my Step Dad asked for them to hold off for one more minute, they said no, and closed the doors. I love that for us! I know rules are rules and can appreciate a structure, but to not transfer our $801 tour for the next available one just floored me. HarbourAir’s inability to be accommodating, understanding and flexible feels so disingenuous. They already had our money (no refunds, gotcha), they had available seats (cool, let’s go) but refused to be flexible. So much for the excellent customer service HarbourAir claims to provide. Clearly they need our $801 that was saved up, more than we do. I have learned a hard lesson through this for sure but will make sure to share this experience with others.

    Poor Service
    We checked in an hour and a half early, went to the pub to wait for our flight. There was one waitress on staff ant the pub and took half an hour to get pay our bill. We spoke to the Harbour Air reception 15 minutes before the flight explaining we would be right there. We got to the flight 10 minutes before take off instead of the 20 minute check in policy. Because we were late, the pilot told the office not to let us onto the plane. We sat and watched for 10 minutes before the plane left. This just goes to show how the pilots take the 20 minute rule seriously and have no sympathy or flexibility. Had to take a $340 taxi ride to Nanaimo to the ferry and didn’t get home until midnight. Needless to say, we were very disappointed in their customer service.

    A fun day
    The plane rides were quite comfortable and the pilots were friendly. The same with the bus tour to the gardens. The gardens were gorgeous!!

    Great experience with plenty of choice
    We took the ferry to Victoria from downtown Vancouver which took nearly 6 hours, most of which was spent on busses, so thought we'd check out the return by seaplane Great decision. We went into the terminal and the young lady that helped us was clear and helpful. Flights were pretty regular and (we thought) not too expensive. The return took us about 90-120 minutes, in total, and was a cool, and much quicker, ferry alternative. Our plane was a 12 seater and despite being at the rear (seats are first come first choice) we were able to take some great photos. It was an nice day and take off and landing was as smooth as silk, which may not be the case on other days. We had luggage which cost extra but I'm sure not an issue if you're going on a tour.

    ‘First come, first serve’ for seat allocation. Worst customer service.
    I booked a scenic view tour package with two senior family members, both over the age of 70, and one handicapped individual. We anticipated a pleasant and accommodating experience, as advertised. However, we were met with a lack of consideration for our mobility needs and a seating policy that did not account for the elderly or handicapped passengers. It was disheartening to find that the policy of ‘first come, first serve’ for seat allocation does not take into account the slower pace at which older or handicapped individuals may board the aircraft. As a result, by the time we boarded, all seats with a view were taken, which is the essence of a scenic tour experience. Moreover, the staff’s unwillingness to understand or accommodate our needs was unexpected and upsetting.

    A must do on your trip to Vancouver
    Never having done anything like this before, we felt we couldn’t pass up the chance. Take off, cruise, and landing were amazingly smooth. Only problem was it was too short and we wanted it to last longer. One of the highlights of our trip! Views of Vancouver you can’t get anywhere else. Highly recommended!

The views from the seaplane were amazing even though it was a cloudy misty day. Unexpected high mountain peaks and blue lakes on mountain tops.

I tried very hard to book a flight and was 1 hour on hold on the phone and.
The recorded message said One would have the opportunity to leave their phone number and be called back if they were unable to take your call.
They did not leave an opportunity to leave a number for a return call.
Although they very clearly promised.
There for I travelled by Helicopter instead.
