Wow!!
Sep 2021
What a fantastic experience! Our tour was 40 minutes long but we only paid the 30 minute price. I thought it was a little pricey but it's an experience that you'll never forget! We did ask prior to the flight on where to sit, the gentleman said it didn't matter as the plane will turn around so the people sitting on the left will see the same as the people on the right once it makes the circle. This was not the case, when the plane turned it did a different route.. We still enjoyed the tour but maybe the staff should be better trained on advising guests. Canada is a beautiful country!!

Would not recommend greatly
Sep 2021
The sight seeing was great.
The Pilot was dumb.
He did not speak a single word during the whole flight.
When asked noded the head, showing his head phone.

What a flight without any things to know/listen only seeing.?????

He did talk to the other group earlier to us, but did not say a single word to us.

Was he racial ? I dont know.

Looks like we just had a simple plane ride on mountains.

kgrmehta, we appreciate your feedback regarding the lack of commentary. Regrettably due to a myriad of reasons, there are times we are unable to offer commentary throughout the flight. These reasons can include, but are not limited to, weather conditions, aircraft capacity and headset connections, or high volume of traffic in and around the our flight path. While you were left with only the sound of the powerful engine, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the spectacular views from above. If you'd like us to look into the exact reasons as to why this may have been the case for you and your travel party, please contact us at customercare@harbourair.com with your unique booking identifier. - Harbour Air Viator Team

Jul 2021 • Family
It was a bit cloudy on the morning of our adventure and Harbour Air staff were very forthcoming that we may not be able to see as much as we had hoped, however once we got up in the air our expectations were met and exceed by the beauty of the Rockies. Staff on the ground and in the air were superb, professional, we felt very safe flying with our 10 and 13 year old kids.
At the end I forgot to ask the name of the large lake we flew over, it would have been nice to know !

FrequentFlier402574, what a username! We are thrilled to hear an expert like you enjoyed the spectacular views that we're so proud to show off on behalf of all British Columbians. As for the beautiful glacial lake you flew over, this was Cheakamus Lake located in the stunning Garibaldi Provincial Park. We truly do our best to offer elevated service whether on the ground or in the air, and we look forward to seeing you and your family again soon. - Harbour Air TripAdvisor Team

Nice experience in Whistler
Sep 2020 • Couples
We chose this attraction while in vacation in Whistler for my birthday. The check in was quick and courteous. The experience was amazing taking into consideration that it was the first time into a floatplane. The views were amazing but because of the clouds and the increasing wind we could not see all the things we wanted to see during this trip. For this reason, the duration was shorter and after we returned, we were told that we will have a partial refund. Great trip, great company!

Spectacular Glacier Tour
Jun 2019 • Friends
I went on the Spectacular Glacier Tour with Whistler Air (Harbour Air) and it was such an amazing experience! We were able to park for free at the Nicklaus North Golf Club and it was an easy check in process with Naomi at the front desk. We were able to wait on the dock where they had comfy Adirondack chairs overlooking Green Lake but if you get to your tour extra early, you could also enjoy a beverage on the Table Nineteen patio about 50 meters away.

Tim was our pilot and we took a smaller plane with two other guests and before we knew it, we taxied across the lake and quickly took off. It was a bit windy that day but we didn't experience any crazy turbulence and overall it was an extremely smooth ride. we were each given a headset which dulled the plane noise and also allowed for Tim to commentate the ride.

The tour was jaw-dropping - as a local to Whistler I thought I'd seen it all but wow, the views are incredible! You first fly over the village to Cheakamus Lake, then up through to Garibaldi Lake, around Black Tusk then over WhistlerBlackcomb Mountains and back to Green Lake. It was so cool to see your house/hotel from the sky, fly over the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, watch kayakers on the River of Golden Dreams, and get so close to the Black Tusk you feel like you could touch it.

I would highly recommend this tour to visitors of Whistler or even residents looking to do something special. I took the 6PM tour which was noted by staff to be the best time to take a tour as it's less windy and the sun isn't as glaring. Thanks Harbour Air and Tim!

Great experience for those on right side of plane (I was). We thought the pilot would pass the same things on the way back for those on the left side, but didn't happen. Take off and landing very smooth - much more so than I had anticipated. Definitely worth the trip.

Must do experience
All staff very friendly. Rick our pilot, very professional and welcoming. Don't let a misty day turn you off doing a trip. We loved the beauty of the misty clouds, the valleys, rocky mountains, Whistler Village and of course the Glacier. From the take off to landing it was a memorable experience.

Fantastic Flight
May 2018 • Couples
Superb experience. We went at 5.30 and the air was still so our pilot Rick took us really close to the peaks glaciers and ice fields. Fantastic trip. Well worth the money we took off from the lake by the golf club and had a 40 min flight. Lovely setting. Whistler air transported us back to whistler village

Great company with awesome pilots!
Jun 2018 • Friends
A friend and I did the Valley tour with Darren as our pilot a few days ago. The views were amazing, the ride was smooth and he gave us a bit of a bonus by giving us some extra time in the air. The view of Garibaldi Lake and Whistler were incredible! I would definitely recommend this company to friends.

Incredible !!
Went on the 20 minute valley tour, our pilot Darren was the best! He took us further over black tusk so we could see some glaciers and Garabaldi Lake. HIGHLY recommend, couldn’t believe how amazing the views were from the back side of whistler mountain.
