What You Can Expect

Vancouver Seaplane Tour

Vancouver Seaplane Tour

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.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

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.
