We had been watching the seaplanes take off and land for two days. Decided to give it a go. Well worth it. Our pilot Reggie took us over the mountains. Spectacular scenery. So different up close.

Such a great trip from Vancouver to Nanaimo. Starting and landing on water is such a pleasure. So smooth. It feels like a boat trip, no worry at all. I would do it again.
