Overview
You could take the ferry or a bus to Victoria, but with all the transportation and traffic involved, it could take hours. Get to your destination in 35 minutes with this one way seaplane flight from Vancouver. As you fly over Vancouver, capture prime aerial views of Canada Place, Burrard Inlet and Stanley Park. Fly south over the Salish Sea and the Gulf Islands, and then land downtown at Victoria’s Inner Harbour near the Fairmont Empress Hotel and BC Parliament Buildings.
Highlights
  • Ariel views of oceanside Vancouver, the Gulf Islands and the Salish Sea
  • Leave from Canada Place and land in Victoria's Inner Harbour
  • 8-passenger planes mean less waiting and personalized service
  • Convenient flights depart hourly throughout the day
What to Expect
Arriving just 25 minutes before your scheduled flight is the first hint that this flight will be different from the usual. Without the stress of getting out to the airport or hassles of mass transit you can enjoy the ease of a seaplane trip. The sails of Canada Place bid you farewell as your 8 passenger de Havilland seaplane departs from the Burrard Inlet. Have your camera ready for the non-stop views: Stanley Park, the Lion's Gate Bridge, the cluster of green of the Gulf Islands, and the coastal waterways that make up the Salish Sea. In Victoria you will land at the picturesque Inner Harbour, an easy stroll to the Fairmont Empress Hotel and the Legislature Building, two of the prettiest landmarks in a city full of pretty landmarks. All that is left for you to do is book your trip back to the mainland.

We opted for the 30 minutes seaplane ride from Vancouver to Victoria for overnight trip. It was an amazing experience which is highly recommended. Check-in and boarding was smooth. Never realized how smooth a water landing was. Worth the time and cost.
