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.

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.

Traveler Tips

  • "We went on Canada Day so it was very busy at Canada Place and a little difficult to get down to the check-in area, but on a normal day I assume it would be a lot easier." See review
  • "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
  • "The time flew and what a smooth landing, a must when visiting Vancouver …." See review

Best way to view this picturesque city. Landing & take-off surprisingly smooth, although it was a little cramped inside.

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.

Awesome experience
, Apr 2022
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.

Absolutely wonderful! Totally worth it! If you sit in the front seats you might get to ride up front!

Make full ‘requirements’ clear before booking to avoid disappointments!
, Apr 2022
The fiasco of the booking in experience blew the family treat completely. It was difficult enough to find out where to locate the flight departure until we received the tickets, then having not expanded the ‘read more’ section one of our group of seven members did not have proof of vaccination (we had arrived at YVR the day before and would not have been allowed in without it!) so Grandma was not allowed on the trip. No discretion or common sense, just blind autocratic bureaucracy and a waste of money.

Chris_B - Thank you for you feedback regarding your recent experience with our team. We would be pleased to investigate this further for you, if you could please contact us directly at with your name and booking number, we’d be pleased to assist.
Fabulous ‘must-do’ tour! Amazing!
, Apr 2022
This is a fabulous trip! Great views and I thought good value considering the airtime and view. A very worth while & unusual experience. The harbour airport is very nice too and staff extremely friendly. A must-do activity!
