We had just 3 days in Vancouver before our cruise and wanted to utilize our time the very best way possible and this day trip via the seaplane was absolutely perfect. When in the Pacific Northwest....travel the way the locals do.

Both flights were late- but flight over was flawless. Smooth take off and landing. Deplaned and didn’t know where to go to get bus to Victoria..no instruction. Flight on way back had two pilots which we later learned one was training. ROUGH landing. I’m just saying, for that kind of money- I want an expert flying the plane.

We wanted to see Victoria and only had time for a day trip. Getting the seaplane each way allowed us to maximise our time there. The flights were brilliant and the transfers to Butchart Gardens worked really well. A fantastic day out.

We had only one day to see Victoria and the Butchart Gardens, and 4.5 hours each way on the ferry was not going to allow us nearly enough time to enjoy. Harbor Air Seaplanes made it possible to do it all in a day. Their staff is super professional. The flights were a mere 35 minutes each way. While the morning trip to Victoria was rainy, the evening trip was clear and views were incredible!
