This was part of a Tauck tour on a "float plane" from Victoria to Vancouver. Planes hold about 10 people and the flight is only about 40 minutes but it is fun, the views are terrific and it is much quicker than the ferry.

We booked the 20 minute flight around the island. Without a guide we didn't think it was much different than when we flew to and from the island. Headphones or an informative monitor would make the trip better.More
