NEVER book online, their website does not explain fare and rate differences without going CSI for fine print links. They make it seem simple so they can mislead you to non refundable options

Our family of 6 adults took a tour with Sunshine Coast Air as a 75th birthday celebration for my Mom. It was incredible! Josh was an amazing host and pilot and created one of the most memorable experiences for all of us. Thank you! I can't wait to do it again.

My husband book a surprise trip for my birthday. The staff is very friendly, the owner is Amazing.
It took off and lasted about 30 minutes. Enjoyed every bit of it! The views are spectacular especially that it was sunny.
We recommend it to everyone. Next time we’re going to take our 2.5 years old girl with us :)

On August 27th, 2019, my wife and I and my wife's cousin and his wife took to the air with Captain Malcolm Fletcher and had an experience of a lifetime. This was our day to do the scenic flight to Chatterbox Falls.The day was perfect; clear blue sky and calm seas. Malcolm took us up and over the inlets and mountains en route to Chatterbox Falls at the head of Princess Louisa Inlet. We were treated to spectacular views of mountain lakes, glaciers and a variety of geological marvels. Following three circuits around the steep walled inlet and over the falls we had lost enough altitude for the landing. After our breakfast of muffins and coffee, we walked in for a closer look at the falls complete with an informative commentary from Malcolm.

Then it was back in the air for the return journey. This time Malcolm followed the coastal inlets and gave us a couple of circuits over the spectacular Skookumchuck Narrows. By the time we got back to the dock in Sechelt we were all sporting huge grins and hugging Malcolm. I think you could safely say we were gobsmacked by the whole experience.

Thank you Malcolm and thank you Sunshine Coast Air. We might just have to do it again.

Wow, What a cool trip!! We soared from the Sechelt inlet which is beautiful, adventured above the coastline of the sunshine coast and then above the Skookumchuck Narrows and saw the coastline in a unique way! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and our pilot Malcolm had a great sense of humor and knowledge that really added to the experience. I would absolutely recommend this as a gift or as a fun group outing

What an incredible experience! Felt like we were birds soaring above the coast line. The staff and pilots were so helpful personal. Felt like our tour was hosted by friends. Highly recommended!

We needed to get to Sechelt last minute and the float plane we normally use was fully booked. We went to Sunshine Coast Air and they were able to accommodate us last minute. It was a beautiful day, a flawless flight over the Strait and a perfect landing in Sechelt. Very helpful and friendly staff.

My husband and I were staying at the WCWL and had inquired about a sightseeing flight (by float plane) but were told nothing was available. We were just exploring the area, going down to the dock and saw a float plane there. When we approached a friendly chap - Josh Ramsay who was the pilot - explained that he brought a small group to the Lodge for lunch and he was waiting for their return. We mentioned that we would love to do some "flight-seeing" but were told nothing was available. He spontaneously offered to take us on a 20 minute tour (that's all the time he had) at a special rate and off we went. It was fantastic ! We will eventually return on a really nice day (the weather was quite hazy and thus the visibility limited) and take a longer flight - prearranged directly with Sunshine Coast Air. Highly recommended !
