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.

This is a must-do! Even as a resident of Vancouver, I never tried this and decided to take this ride with visiting folks from Singapore. It is worth the price, with a capable and warm pilot. I can never get enough of the beauty that is Canada, and from up in the air, looking at the mountain ranges, it was breathtaking. So if you are all about the view and scenery, if nature in all its beauty and glory brings tears to yours eyes, this is for you!

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.
