What You Can Expect

Vancouver Seaplane Tour

Flying over Howe Sound

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.

It was an amazing tour!! Luckily for us we still had visibility when we took off. Got to take many photos and the views were breath taking over Vancouver and surrounding areas. Highly recommended not to be missed!!

Great trip, great experience. Looked after us and our 96 y.o. aunt wonderfully.
Pilot v.professional as you would expect. Free drink and snack while waiting for the trip was a nice touch. Got us on early because of Aunty. We did the city tour, but wish we had done more. Probably a geat way to visit Victoria and the Gardens if you want to go that far. Acquaintances used plane to do whale watching, which they really enjoyed though of course you cannot get as close in a plane as you can in a boat.

As first time visitors to Vancouver this seaplane ride was awesome. The staff were very helpful when we asked if we could change the date of our flight. They even went the extra mile when my Husband a retired pilot asked if he could sit in the co-Pilots seat. We highly recommend this flight.

Totall excellent experience. I had been watching the seaplanes take off and land all week as I attended a conference at the Vancouver Convention Center. Was thrilled to see tours were available. Went on one of the smaller planes that seat 4 passengers. Gorgeous views, smooth but fun takeoff and landing. The earplugs they provided were welcome, but I found it to be a surprisingly relaxing experience once we were up in the sky. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
