We chose a day tour with a flight to Victoria an coach and ferry on the return journey. It was great to discover the Gulf Islands which we had seen from above in the morning from close by in the evening

Half the cost of Helijet and just as fast. Try their short sightseeing trip around Vancouver some time. It may be the only chance you ever get to fly in a classic Beaver float plane powered by a loud glorious radial engine.

They fly fast reliable Otter turboprops on the Vancouver/Victoria harbour route. One time in your life you should experience the thrill of skimming across the water faster and faster until suddenly you notice that the sea is falling away, and the weight of the plane is no longer supported by the floats, but by the wings. It's absolutely thrilling!

This was such a terrific mode of travel. We walked with our bags from the hotel to the terminal, waited for 20 minutes and then caught the plane to the harbour in Victoria where we also then walked to our hotel. We will defiitely do this again - save the expense of getting to and from the main airports and get to see the fabulous scenery in much more detail.

My wife and I just recently visited Vancouver to celebrate our wedding anniversary. After two days of local sightseeing, we decided to take a seaplane trip to Victoria with Harbour Air. From the moment we walked into the terminal to book the trip to the time we returned, we felt like VIPs and were treated with first class service. The reservation clerk made us aware that we could save a major amount of money by booking our roundtrip online. He was nice enough to even make the reservations on our behalf. The planes are in great condition and the pilots show tremendous care for their customers. I was even able to sit on the co-pilot seat on the return flight, which elevated the whole experience. When bad weather hit Victoria, Harbour Air called the customers that were booked on the next (to be canceled) flight to provide them with a chance to get on the earlier flight. That’s great customer service. The next time we’re in Vancouver, we’ll definitely try another of their many tours. It’s a great adventure and worth the money.
