We were incredibly lucky to get the plane to ourselves as no one else had booked our particular tour. Our pilot was really friendly and happy to answer questions. It was a fantastic experience and a great way to see Vancouver from a different angle.More

We opted for the 30 minutes seaplane ride from Vancouver to Victoria for overnight trip. It was an amazing experience which is highly recommended. Check-in and boarding was smooth. Never realized how smooth a water landing was. Worth the time and cost.More

You can take your luggage with you. They put it in the floats so I guess there will be a size and weight limit as with any flight.

Check the Harbour Air website. The Terms and Conditions state a minimum 25 minutes before flight time for check in. If you want to avail yourself of the free tea, coffee and biscuits I’d recommend bit longer!
