Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Victoria by Seaplane and Ferry from Vancouver. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
It all went as advertised. I can't think of a thing the companies could have done to make the experience better.
This is a booking service or travel agency and not directly responsible for your reservations. Once you make them, you are on your own to deal with airline, bus etc. Viator was efficient and courtesy and once you know how the game is played it is a very good service.
The whole trip was brilliant. I was a bit nervous about lfying on a seaplane but it was really smooth and I loved it so much so that when we landed in Victoria we changed from the ferry crossing on the way back and flew back.
wonderful trip on plane and ferry. an excellent visit to Victoria. I recommend.
Easy and problem free booking. Easy to find Vancouver harbor location. Easy to add visit to Butchart Gardens at harbor terminal. Ride on Seaplane to Victoria was smooth and provided fantastic views. Bus service from Victoria to Butchart Gardens and then to the ferry boat for the trip back to Vancouver and to your Vancoucer hotel was carefree. Great Job Viator!
The "fly there; drive back" package was perfect. Beautiful flight with good service. The bus and ferry ride fromVictoria to Vancouver is a bit of a treck, but beautiful, well organized and comfortable. The price for kids is a great deal.
We had a most enjoyable September morning trip to Victoria by seaplane, the conditions were perfect and the views were spectacular.
We spent the day in Victoria visiting the Royal BC Museum, shopping and taking in the harbour views. We had a long lunch sat in the patio area of a bar/restaurant watching the world go by.
We caught the connecting coach before five pm for the ferry which left Victoria for the return trip to Vancouver. The ferry journey was scenic and most relaxing. The connecting coach dropped us off at our down town hotel at the end of what can only be described as a perfect day. Highly recommended.
We were very pleased with our seaplane and ferry tour. The service was excellent and everything was taken care of right from the beginning where we spent the day in beautiful Victoria after the plane ride, to the end where we were dropped off by our hotel in Vancouver after the ferry and bus ride back. We would definitely take this tour again.
A beautiful trip with lots of scenery and free time in Victoria. Had a wonderful time and recommend this trip to anyone wanting to spend a day in Victoria.
The Harbour Air staff was incredible. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip.
I love it..seeing Vancouver from up there was amazing..Loved Victoria too. I recommended it. It's a must do if you visit Vancouver.
We loved the seaplane ride from Vancouver to Victoria. There are more seats inside the plane than I thought there would be, but once we were settled in, it didn’t feel that cramped. Take-off was very smooth, and the plane is by far the best way to enjoy the gorgeous area between Vancouver and Victoria. Flying over all of the Gulf Islands is amazing – it’s so worth traveling by seaplane! The windows are pretty big and allow for great picture-taking. Landing is not quite as smooth, but splashing down into the water is pretty exciting. Victoria is a great place to spend a day: very charming, easily walkable, cute historic downtown district with some good restaurants.
Great trip. Terrific views of Vancouver Island and Stanley Park as you take off.
Saved nearly 3 hrs with using only the ferry for the return journey.
Would have been better if Viator offered an inclusive ticket for Buchart Gardens. However in the end it was not a problem to obtain an inclusive coach/admission ticket from Victoria tourist centre by the harbour.
What can I say??? This is one of the most memorable, exciting things we have ever done and we have travelled a lot. Seaplane experience was so exciting, reliable, great pilot and on time. The good thing about this tour is you have your transport to and fro Victoria then you can do your own thing in between. I would strongly recommend you also get thr Butchart Gardens tour from Viator and this gives you a free shuttle and entry into Gardens, a must. Ferry home was such a good experience, bus drives straight onto ferry, you grt off and go upstairs and then just before you dock you go back to bus and they drive off ferry to take you home. Definitely one of the best Viator tours we have ever done.
First rate trip, thoroughly recommend it. Definitely the best way to see Victoria.
It was the most perfect weather and fantastic to enjoy the views from both the plane and ferry. Really memorable experience.
One of the highlights of my holiday in Canada. The seaplane was thrilling and the return journey by bus and ferry really interesting, seeing the journey we had made by air from a different perspective. Well worth the money.
Absolutely great. The seaplane experience was very good, with professional staff and an interesting low level flight to Victoria. The ferry ride back was a chance to relax, with the bus driver being particularly helpful
This was a superb day. even with inclement weather, and the need to drive to another spot to depart, the flights was great - the day at Victoria superb, and the return ferry a mystical delight - beautiful calm waters after the rugged morning starty! And wifi as well! Truly four season in one day. The communication was clear and help was always available if required. Gerard (Sydney, Australia)
Well managed. Check in and directions superb. Tour assitance by staff fantastic. Flight and plane were great.
Wonderful! Had a fab view off vancover on route to Victoria, getting in and out of plane an experience in it self! A must for anyone going to vancover
My husband and I truly enjoyed this trip. From the seaplane ride, our first ever, including some fabulous muffins in the airport while we waited, to the relaxing ferry ride after a long day of walking, and finally a door to door bus ride back to our hotel. This was an experience to remember. Isn't that what vacations are about!
