    What to Expect
    Head to Victoria’s Inner Harbour to board a classic de Havilland seaplane that seats a max of eight passengers. Planes depart daily every hour from 7:30am to 6:30pm, giving you ample flexibility in making your travel plans.

    Take to the skies and admire the sprawling and picturesque Ogden Point port. As you leave Victoria, snap aerial shots of the Fairmont Empress, an iconic ivy-covered hotel in the area, and the neobaroque BC Parliament Buildings that sparkle at night with thousands of lightbulbs.

Your captain flies you north over the lush Gulf Islands in the Salish Sea. Spot the green towers of Lion’s Gate Bridge and Brockton Peninsula of Stanley Park, and then make a smooth landing in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour, part of Burrard Inlet. (If you had traveled by ferry, you'd land 45 minutes outside of the city — whereas this airline's terminal is located right beside Canada Place!)
    

Enjoy your stay, and don’t forget to book your return flight!

    A trip on a float-plane was on my "bucket list". The morning flight from Victoria to the North Terminal at Vancouver was just beautiful. The weather at Victoria was cloudless sky and warm sunshine. The flight was magnificent with wonderful views of the East side of Vancouver

    I sat up near the pilot who was very friendly. It was a slow ride but comfortable and fun. Must duck you head because the roof is not high enough especially for tall people. All luggage was taken care of for you.

    I cannot fault Harbour Air’s planes, staff, procedures or pilots. We flew from Pitt Meadows to Victoria BC, and back. It was wonderful to book in with just a few people in a quiet little lounge with free coffee and baked goods, and friendly people. The airline is North America’s

    My wife and I flew from Vancouver Harbour to Victoria Harbour (can’t change the trip type for some reason) to stay for one night before moving on. It was a great experience, the views were incredible and taking off and landing from the water is an experience we won’t forget.
