Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Get a unique view of the beautiful city of Vancouver, marveling at its scenic harbor, surrounding mountains and beautiful architecture, during this 20-minute seaplane flight. You'll take off from the water of Vancouver's busy downtown harbor, continuing on a aerial exploration of some of the city's beautiful skyline and lush pine tree-covered surroundings.

Start your seaplane flight from Canada Place in Downtown Vancouver. Depending on the time you select, your flight will leave at either 10:30am, 2:30pm or 6:45pm. Climb aboard your seaplane and feel the engines whir up to full power as you gracefully glide above the water and up into sky. 

During the course of your flight you'll be able to observe landmarks like Vancouver's emerald-green Stanley Park, its bustling downtown, and the buildings constructed for the city's hosting of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Then come back down to earth (or water, rather) touching back in the harbor with a splash, having enjoyed a one-of-a-kind view of this unique Canadian city.

Please note: flight times are approximate and subject to change depending on weather conditions and weight limits.

The scenic tour with Harbour Air was such a pleasant experience from check in to disembarking the craft. We’re locals who love this city and it’s stunningly picturesque from the air! The trip made for a very memorable 14th birthday for my daughter!

Not worth the money
, Aug 2021
Flight is beautiful - our plane was 10 minutes late and yet we were back on time. Paid for a full flight and tour. We got a 20 min flight - Vancouver is stunning from above. A pamphlet or some tour materials would have helped those who have no idea what they are flying over. To put people on a plane and fly them over a city without any guide is not a tour

Almir_H, we appreciate your feedback regarding the lack of commentary. Due to the high volume of traffic in and around the harbours, our pilots are constantly in contact with Air Traffic Control which does not allow for them to provide live commentary throughout the flight to all the passengers. We do however offer FlyGuide flight companions on our most popular Vancouver and Victoria tours. These companions are a handheld multimedia device which offers customized audio commentary, photos, and maps in five different languages. For those guests interested in an enhanced seaplane experience with narration, we recommend renting a FlyGuide device for $10 plus tax. If we've the pleasure to welcome you aboard again, please do not hesitate to contact us at where we would be pleased to ensure you have access to this FlyGuide on us. - Harbour Air TripAdvisor Team
