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.
Excellent experience and great staff! Our pilot was very helpful and kind to treat nice nicely and with a smile all the time.
We have been using VIATOR 3 times over last 3 years and this is the best experienced we had.
Keep up the great work guys!

A great way to get that rare overview of the area...an exciting treat!
Taking a trip in a seaplane over a city was something that other people did, until yesterday. What seemed like an expensive luxury became an essential must-do of our tour as part of our trip to Vancouver. Friendly Pilot, hot on safety, and magnificent views of a fabulous city and around.
Fantastic view of Vancouver
Seaplane was a Bucket list job for us and it delivered big style
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!
Probably my best experience in VC!
It was a very pleasant and memorable flight.
Brilliant, saw Vancouver from a totally different perspective. Well worth the money
Wonderful experience, what a great way to see the Vancouver area!
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.
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!
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.
All went well - efficient, welcoming staff, on time, beautiful weather. Highly recommended.
There are few words to portray just how amazing this experience was. As there were 3 of us doing this trip, my cousin got to sit in the cockpit with our pilot - he was speechless when we got back on dry land! The views were out of this world. So easy to book and find on the day - staff so lovely, helpful and organised. Thank you so much for a trip we will never forget.
