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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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.
