We decided to head to Vancouver Island by seaplane. It wasn’t the cheapest way to get there but it was an adventure in itself. Stunning views, so much fun taking off and landing on water. The flight crew and check in crew were all fabulous.

Being from Hawaii, I have never been in a sea-plane, so this was very cool for me. I only did the 20-minute inflight option because I wasn't sure how smooth or rough the ride would be...I wish I had done the 30-minute in-air option. Oh...More

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!
