I did this trip whilst in Vancouver as part of a multi-city trip.

I have always wanted to take a trip on a boat plane and luckily for me I had the opportunity on this trip.

The check-in process down by the harbour was really easy and the waiting lounge was comfortable.

The plane held around 15 people but, there was plenty of room and everybody had a good view from the cabin.

The pilot was friendly and provided commentary of the main sites.

The flight was smooth and lasted around 20 minutes.

The views over the bay and up over the snow covered mountains were just stunning. I found myself sitting there with a massive smile on my face, it was so captivating. The flight was amazingly smooth, as was the landing.

It was truly one of the best experiences of this holiday and ticked a bucket list box for me. I would absolutely do this trip again, it was stunning. I was so lucky to have a perfectly clear day so could take loads of photos.

I can't recommend this trip highly enough, it was worth every penny.
Great experience! ...

Great experience!
My boyfriend and I took the tour and we’re both from Vancouver. It was magical. Will be taking this tour again with out of town family and friends.
Serious fun!

You need to show your Id to board this plane. Had to go back to my hotel to get it. Staff were very helpful, particularly with my 80-yr old mom. Views were spectacular. Highly recommend this tour.
Good Service and Views

We went to enquire about the types of trips available and a young lady was very helpful and explained what was involved. We decided to do the 30 minute sight seeing flight.

Well organised and some really great views from Vancouver City, Stanley Park and into the mountains.

Well worth the cost, seeing the area from the air.
Great views of Vancouver and Horseshoe Bay

Had to reschedule the first time because of winds and fog.
So we went on the last day of 2022.
It was a beautiful day, very mild breeze, a few puffy clouds and a spectacular view!
You’re only up IN THE AIR for about 20 minutes, wish it had been an hour.
It was a surprise trip for my friend’s birthday. Great way to spend the last day of the year. It was a really fun time! absolutely worth it.
