Wonderful experience, what a great way to see the Vancouver area!
Just what we expected. A short ridge over the city. No better perspective that this. A new experience, taking off and landing on the water. Great experience. Highly recommended.
The seaplane tour was amazing! The pilot was really friendly and the views of the city and surrounding alpine lakes were beautiful. This is a must do while visiting Vancouver.
Having never been in a seaplane before, this was a very enjoyable experience. Taking off and landing on the water, and flying around the harbour. We went for the shorter 20 minute flight, and I was a bit unsure of how long we would actually get in the air. But we had a full 20 minutes of flying and I would recommend this.
Absolutely fantastic,weather was gorgeous and the flight was great taking in all the breathtaking scenery around Vancouver. From check in to the end of flight everything was perfect,complimentary tea/coffee before take off and then our grandson got to sit in the cockpit with the pilot,who was just great. Money well spent would recommend this trip,a must see for anyone who lives and visits Vancouver.
The tour was worth every dollar! Steve was a phenomenal pilot with great information about the beautiful city of Vancouver. I was even able to sit in the cockpit. My wife and I had a blast and we HIGHLY recommend!
The seaplane tour was wonderful. The flight time was just right to allow us to enjoy the sights and the experience while keeping the cost reasonable. As other reviews have noted, the rows have single seats on one side and two seats on the other. To ensure a single window seat and good view, you can pay 10 extra upon check-in. It was worth it for us, and we never had to try to see around the passenger next to us to look out the window. The pilot circled the city and natural area in each direction to make sure each side had the same views. All in all, I am thrilled we did this.
All went well - efficient, welcoming staff, on time, beautiful weather. Highly recommended.
There are few words to portray just how amazing this experience was. As there were 3 of us doing this trip, my cousin got to sit in the cockpit with our pilot - he was speechless when we got back on dry land! The views were out of this world. So easy to book and find on the day - staff so lovely, helpful and organised. Thank you so much for a trip we will never forget.
The seaplane trip was brilliant and comes fully recommended, We thoroughly enjoyed it. I hate flying but went the 'extra mile' and glad I did!
The views of this beautiful city is spectacular! This is an excellent way to Vancoucer from a different view.
We loved everything about our seaplane tour of Vancouver! Friendly pilot, smooth takeoff, excellent views of city, hills, and Howe Sound.... and the airlines made everything from parking to boarding so easy.
Great tour around the city! The pilot was friendly and professional! Only advice would be to provide better directions on where to catch the plane. There are two parts of the convention center and it would be good if they specified which part of the convention center.
The flight was fantastic, however we almost had to cancel due to confusion with the viator site. We booked a 10:30 tour and all over the confirmation email it stated 10:30 in bold writing, however when we arrived at 10:10 the flight had already left! The staff moved us luckily. needs to be clearer
The most fun on my visit to Vancouver. Best way to see the city....excellent staff and service!!!!
will do it again on my next visit....
We really enjoyed this trip. It was a birthday treat. We thought it would be over really quickly but did not feel like that at all.
Although it was bad weather when we started i.e. thunder etc it cleared just as the plane was about to take off and we had an excellent time on the plane. Because the clouds were still over the city the pilot kept us in the air over the mountains. Well worth the money.
Brilliant experience with awesome views over the city and surrounding areas. Well organised but would have liked a commentary from the pilot during the flight.
