What to expect
  • Your 2-hour flightseeing adventure begins in Green Lake, just outside of Whistler. Choose your departure time, meet your pilot and board the floatplane for a thrilling water take-off. As you leave the water, marvel at the epic beauty of British Colombia. You’ll have great views of the enormous glaciers cradling turquoise lakes, snow-capped mountains, volcanic formations and waterfalls. From your lofty vantage point, witness how the geological elements of this area have come together over thousands of years.   After approximately 30 minutes in the air, you’ll touch down on a quiet alpine lake. Cruise up to a sandy beach and take some time to stroll through the forest, breathe in the clean mountain air and indulge in a leisurely deli-style picnic lunch (additional expense). Then hop back in the seaplane for the flight back to Whistler.

Mehhhh meh meh - no history just views
Took a 30 minute air plane tour today from the lake and around the mountains. I was so excited and have never done this before. Overall: un-impressed.

Here’s why: there is no direction once you arrive and nobody to guide you until the plane begins. Plane itself? Nauseating. I’ve never gotten car sick or air plane sick... ever, but this made me dizzy and nauseas. When you sit down the pilot lets you know he’s giving you a history tour of what we are seeing. (Glaciers ? Lakes ? What lake ? Mountains? Which mountain? What am I seeing?) these questions will pop into your mind as you are on the plane. Usually they should tell you, as stated in the tour description. However not today. He said the sound system was down. He did not explain anything — when asked he said “just enjoys the views. Sorry bout that”

Excuse me? I payed 185 dollars for a 30 minute tour. That mean every minute I am paying 6$ and when you tell me I won’t listen to the history, I’m extremely disappointed and honestly,..... totally deceived on the tour and service. What a shame!!!!

The views were gorgeous. I just wish I knew what I was seeing and the history behind it like promised.

Incredible flight. A must do.
Aug 2019
My friends in Whistler had bought this for me and my wife as a wedding present for our honeymoon in Canada. What an incredible experience it was. The pilot was brilliant and very informative. The views are we headed to head to lake were amazing and it was a great experience to dip our feet in a lake that is only accessible by plane. We forgot to take some lunch so I would recommend that you take something to eat as your at the late for about 30 minutes and there's not much exploring that you can. Would highly recommend this anyone!
