This tour was awesome and definitely well worth the money. The flight time was just enough to get a good look at the beautiful city. Fortunately we had a nice clear day.

What a wonder packed experience. My wife watched Amazing race Canada on TV so we had to fly over Vancouver in a seaplane. Our flight was first thing in the morning and we were surprised to find out a lot of people commuted to Vancouver to work. So cool. We saw a lot and the pilot was great to announce the sights as we cruised over them. What an experience. Well worth the money.

Blessed with a sunny day, very easy getting booked in, just like a mini departure lounge with tea and coffee provided. Bit bouncy on take off but then you were off and what a wonderful experience it was helped by John out pilot. The time flew and what a smooth landing, a must when visiting Vancouver ….

Beautiful overall views of Vancouver and surroundings out of the small and classic De Havilland Beaver Seaplane. Good sight. Only four persons on board (inclusive the skillful and focussed pilot). Very nice part of my visit to Vancouver. I recommend it. (Only the information at the information desk in the harbor could be a little bit better.)

We treated our 15 year old granddaughter to the very memorable seaplane harbor takeoff, airborne view of the city, and landing. It was exhilarating!

I surprised my boyfriend with this as an early birthday gift (he was visiting Vancouver for the first time) and he absolutely loved it! 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. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating, and the flight was beautiful. Our plane sat 13 people plus the pilot, and even though I was not right beside the window, I could still see all the gorgeous views on both sides of me. I also thought the price of the flight was good for what you get. I would definitely recommend this for anyone, whether you are just visiting or have lived here your whole life like me!

Everybody has a window seat and pilot doubles back so both sides get the views. Harbor terminal east access

The ride was worth every penny. My friend and I loved every minute of it. Our pilot, I think his name was Nathan, was fantastic. Very professional and extremely friendly. The flight was great! However, don’t waste the $10 on the audio commentary. Both machines failed to work. We still had a great time either way. Just save the $10 per person, so when asked if you want audio commentary just say no. This had no impact on our overall experience and had nothing to do with the pilot which is why still gave the 5 star rating.

The Vancouver Seaplane Tour was absolutely amazing. Really worth it! Views from Vancouver, the bay, the mountains and the experience of taking off and landing on water, everything was wonderful. Highly recommended!

Mike was a great pilot and our son was able to sit in the cockpit and view the scenery. It was well worth the money. Thanks Rufus and Lawrence

Super experience! The highlight of my trip to Vancouver. Passengers cheered as we took off, as we circled above the city and hills, and again when we landed smoothly! Harold, the pilot, was outstanding. Scheduling and check in were easy with efficient and personable staff. Just go!

What an incredible way to see Vancouver. We were very lucky as we had a very clear day and the views were amazing. It was extremely well organised from booking in for the flight to the return with free coffee and cakes in the terminal for all the participants.

Good view of the city, worth paying the extra $10 for a window seat.

Amazing views over Vancouver,new experience for me in a seaplane and really enjoyed it, lucky enough to sit up front with the pilot but wherever you sat you would get a good view.
