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.

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

Not bad but not an awesome experience
, Jul 2021
As travellers to Vancouver there should have been someone explaining what we are seeing. It wouldn’t be something that I would highly recommend to my friends
Great adventure

Great experience but since I sat I the co pilot chair the pilot was a little iffy. But the scenery and overall experience was worth while

It was my first time to take the seaplane and it was amazing! Truly worth it. A must-try in Vancouver when you’re in for a day tour!

Amazing experience! I was afraid that the weather was going to be bad but the sun peeked out and it was beautiful! Felt extremely safe and the view is breathtaking! Whether you’re a local or you’re visiting vancouver this is a must!
Saved our trip!

This is excellent, our trip to Vancouver was late December around Christmas time was very dull and Rainey the whole time. On the last day we came across this and the skies were blue and visibility was exceptional, it gave us a high point of our holiday and left in good spirits. Would recommend 10/10
Awesome experience
, Oct 2020
Awesome experience. Nice to give a surprise to your loved ones. We were worried about the weather playing a spoilsport. But it didn't matter much as they fly quite low. So its worth flying even on an overcast day.
Friendly staff! Awesome view of Vancouver
