It was a bit cloudy on the morning of our adventure and Harbour Air staff were very forthcoming that we may not be able to see as much as we had hoped, however once we got up in the air our expectations were met and exceed by the beauty of the Rockies. Staff on the ground and in the air were superb, professional, we felt very safe flying with our 10 and 13 year old kids. At the end I forgot to ask the name of the large lake we flew over, it would have been nice to know !

FrequentFlier402574, what a username! We are thrilled to hear an expert like you enjoyed the spectacular views that we're so proud to show off on behalf of all British Columbians.

Flew Richmond to Ganges Harbour, first time flight for my 11yr old son.....Harbour Air made this an amazing memorable experience that he wont soon forget. He was terrified to go and all was handled amazing, we flew back home into Vancouver Harbour too which was equally well done. Thanks Harbour Air for a perfect experience!

Harbour Air offers a cargo service which we have used off and on for the past 5 months. I run a business and we fly product from Vancouver Island to the Sunshine Coast. We we first wanted to fly product to the Sunshine Coast, I phone both Harbour Air and Sunshine Coast Airlines to find out what their rates for cargo was. I told them what we would be flying, and what the weight would be ruffly. Both companies stated that cargo is billed by weight, and gave me the pricing for the weights. Yesterday i went to drop off our product from the morning flight to the sunshine coast. I was told that i would be charged $80 + tax ( the price of a seat ) to fly my cargo to the coast. I was then told that cargo is billed based on weight and DIMENSIONS. I was shocked. We have flown with them before and never been charged like this. Paying that much for cargo is not a feasible option. I now had to run over to the other airlines and book the mid day flight with them (they weren't running a morning flight that day.) This now caused me to miss my appointment, and have to wait around all morning for the next fight, of which i paid $30 + tax to fly to cargo to the sunshine coast. There were multiple issues - when i enquired about flying cargo in last fall i was told that cargo is billed by weight. When we had flown other items, it was done by weight. - the staff could tell by my reaction that i had never been told this. They should have sent my cargo by weight and informed me of how it would be moving forward. Instead the staff just stood there and said its a seat price. I can no long depend on harbour air for reliable service. My product was delayed shipment, vendors were expecting it, the delivery on the sunshine coast side was inconvenienced and had to charge their schedule. I missed an appointment and delayed everything happening that morning. I will no longer be flying with Harbour Air and will Support the other local airline instead.

9393km, thank you for taking the time to share this experience with us and we are sorry to hear our services did not meet your needs on that day. In 2020, we updated our freight services to create a familiar shipping experience to align with other major couriers, being able to offer flexible prices depending on the needs of our guests - whether you are looking to send freight on the next flight, have it by end of day, or the next day. Whatever guests' needs, all freight is calculated by weight and dimensions. That being said, it is extremely rare we would suggest a guest to pay for an additional seat to cover the cost of their freight. We would be happy to ensure your freight service was appropriately priced for your needs, and would appreciate the opportunity to look into this for you. If you can please reach out to our Customer Care team at customercare@harbourair.com, we'd be happy to speak. We appreciate you shipping with us over the year, and we looking forward to speaking, - Harbour Air Seaplanes
