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.

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.

  • "Stars for pilot and experience I highly recommend arriving 30-40 minutes early- the office was hard to find from the side which I approached from and it took a while to find." See review

It’s just a beautiful overview of Vancouver. It’s also a very good ending of your journey. You can search, find, find not and remember the places you have been. Therefore I would suggest to do it at the and of your stay. Good luck and have fun

Great trip. Best views.
Bob_W
, Jul 2022
This was our treat whilst visiting Vancouver as we’ve never been in a seaplane (floatplane) before. Operation very smooth and the 20 minute flight was at least that and did not include the chugging out and back. Our plane held about 9 passengers and the views were good from the large Windows. A bit noisy but expected with this type of plane. Take off and landing on water is a different experience. Good value trip.

Flight itself was great. The issue was no mention by pre-emails of needing to be there 30 minutes before hand for check in and filling out forms. Needed boarding passes handed out inside a terminal building which should have been mentioned.

A perfect trip to conclude our holiday
Julie_D
, Jun 2022
We saved this for the last day of our fabulous holiday and it didn’t disappoint. The location is so convenient and it was a perfect choice when you only have a few hours left. The check in was quick and friendly with a lovely complimentary coffee. The pilot was enthusiastic and told us all we needed to know about the landmarks. We had sailed under The Lions Gate Bridge, we travelled over it by coach, we cycled under it and now we could fly over it for the best view. Vancouver really has something for everyone and we hope to return one day

Enjoyable experience, however, it would be an amazing one if there was some information shared during the flight such as the history, fun facts and points of interest as we flew, but still a nice experience.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Amanda - We appreciate your feedback regarding the lack of commentary from your pilot. Due to the high volume of traffic in and around Canada's largest port, our pilots are strictly in contact with Air Traffic Control which does not allow for them to provide a commentary throughout the flight. However, we genuinely appreciate hearing about ways in which we can enhance guest experience and are grateful for your review. Looking forward to your next trip with us! Thank you for choosing Harbour Air.

We were expecting to hear...

We were expecting to hear from the pilot where we were but that was disappointing. I would have liked some narration and also on the trip it said there will be a splash and it felt like that was not there
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Mallika - 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 a commentary throughout the flight. For those guests interested in a guided excursion, we do however recommend our FlyGuide flight companion - A handheld multimedia device which offers pre-recorded audio commentary, photos, and maps in five different languages. This additional narration rental is CAD$10. Hope to have the opportunity to welcome you aboard again in the future!

An excellent must-do experience. If you’re in Vancouver for a couple of days then be sure to add this to your itinerary. Great views and something very different to try out if never been on a seaplane before.

It's a unique experience to view the beautiful sights of Vancouver city from up there. The low altitude gives you a different perspective of the city. It's definitely worth trying this once.
