Itinerary
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.

Perfect from take-off to landing
