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.

Incredible experience!!
, Jan 2022
It was a good 30 min of hovering over the city, right through the bay and of course the aerial view of the city, the islands were splendid.. the dark North Pacific ocean.

Except it is a Seaplane, nothing else different. The view is fine, but not very impressive maybe because it is winter.

It was a great experience to see Vancouver from above the skies. The crew was very friendly. My suggestion to everyone who is taking a seaplane is to grab the front row which has a bigger window. Overall i would highly recommend taking this tour.
The whole experience was...

The whole experience was awesome. From boarding a plane that's basically floating on the water, to takeoff and the views from the skies. Would love to do this again on a bright sunny day. We had a lot of gloom and cloud unfortunately. it was still breathtaking though

I’ve never been in a sea plane so that was fun. I expected something different, and maybe some facts told by the pilot. But nothing said, it was about 20 minutes in the air - long enough! Glad I did it, wouldn’t do it again! Crew all very nice etc.
Great flight

Spectacular trip!
, Oct 2021
This was an experience I'll remember forever, I chose this as a birthday gift for my husband and it was completely out of my comfort as I'm afraid of heights. But the pilot made everything go smooth and it was such a wonderful experience.

Great experience! My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Staff were excellent and friendly. Terminal was a nice atmosphere to sit and watch the planes and have snacks and drinks too. Gift shop was a bonus too!

Awesome flight definitely worth doing while you visit Vancouver. It's worth coming more than 30 mins before because the queues to check in are very long
