A trip worth taking
Sep. 2021 • Couples
We had a wonderful time during our flight. Seeing Vancouver from the air was amazing and the flight was very smooth during takeoff and landing. My only complaint was the listing device to here the pilot didn’t work but they refunded the cost for the device without question.

Overall it’s a tour you would enjoy even without a listening device.

Sep. 2020
All staff at all levels from booking to check-in to harbour front were friendly & helpful. It was a superb experience and a pleasure to have dealt with everyone there. We found everyone competent as well. This was an adventure for my 9 year old nephew who has never flown via seaplane before. He described the experience as 'epic'!

Nice
I bought the seaplane / ferry tour and it was fun. The problem was that it was really foggy that morning, so we ended up fogged in for an hour and a half till our flight was able to depart, we were meant to leave at 9am and ended up going at 10:50am. Fortunately all the staff were really nice and helpful that offered to change our flight if the fog didn't dissipate.

Fantastic use of an hour in downtown Vancouver
Dec. 2019
My wife and I really loved this tour! Stunning views of Vancouver downtown, Stanley park, North/West Vancouver, and several islands. The plane was a bit larger (13 passengers) than we had expected, but the flight, take-off, and landing were all very smooth. The ground crew and pilot were very courteous and helpful, and offered hot drinks and snacks after the flight.
