“Up up and away...”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Instead of the ferry, we chose to take the seaplane from Nanaimo to Vancouver. We flew with Tofino Air. Wow, what an experience! Only 6 people and the plane was full, and one of those was the pilot! Cruising along about 500 feet in the air, at an average speed of 100 mph, the views were outstanding. Would highly recommend. $75 CAD one way each, $134 CAD return. Approx 15 minute trip. Thanks to Scott the pilot. Checkin staff were lovely too

“Glacier Heli Tour”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We've spent a lot of time in Tofino and up until today thought we had some experiences that would be tough to top, but today was more than amazing! To start with, we took off from the airport on a day that looked to be plagued by fog only to emerge in the back of Tofino Inlet in the bright blue sunshine, soaring above the treetops like a floating bubble going mack ten! As we cruised around the mountain tops, our pilot Ben said, "That's our destination", directing our attention to the snow covered mountain peak with crystal blue water surrounding it's edges. To summarize, we swam in glacier pools, hiked mountain tops at four thousand feet, fished in un-fished lakes, and had some amazing river valley flying action. We laughed, screamed and chilled in the sun in some of the most remote beautiful locations we've ever experienced. So if you think you've seen it all in Tofino, you haven't. And if your past adventures have been plagued by other bystanders, don't worry, this was as private as it was awesome!!
