We flew from Vancouver to Whistler on Thursday, 19th of September, 2019 with the 9 am flight. It was a great adventure with beautiful landscapes. At Whistler, a very pleasant Harbour Air employee drove us from the lake to the village. He took time to explain tourists

If you are without a car, I highly recommend flying at least one way to/from Whistler. This was so stress free and easy, and the views were insane. I was on the first flight of the morning over to Whistler, and it was aboard one of the planes equipped for touring so the pilot

Liz L, Thank you so much for the kind words and recommendation! The flight to Whistler is spectacular, and you're right - if it is a sunny day, you experience a tour on the way to Whistler. We are pleased to hear you agree that seaplanes offer a convenient and easy way to travel to the surrounding destinations, in an efficient and time sensitive fashion.

It was perfect sunny morning after raining on previous day. Check in line was long, but that's not for our flight. Our flight was operated by Whistler Air and not Harbour Air - maybe that's why the information of our flight wasn't on the information screen, neither announced by

TravediaID, Thank you so much for your review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your trip to Whistler We are happy to hear you secured a single seat for your comfort during the flight. In regard to the scenic portion of the flight, you are correct - this is a scheduled flight with service between Vancouver and Whistler and although the flight is scenic, it is not intended as a scenic tour. Once in Whistler, we do offer scenic flights ranging from 20 to 60 minutes. We appreciate the recommendation and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back aboard soon! - Harbour Air TripAdvisor Team

Always wanted to fly in a float plane and it was as good as I had hoped. Because you fly through the mountains it is a bit turbulent but the view of the mountains, valleys and lakes are amazing and when you arrive in Whistler it is so beautiful. The village is packed with bars,
