If you go for our suggested Harbourfront Walking Tour you will see many Harbour Air Seaplanes departing and arriving from their Coal Harbour Terminal. Perhaps this will stir up a yearning in you to go for a short (or not so short) scenic sightseeing flight.

If you do take a fancy to the idea of an aerial sightseeing tour of Vancouver, you will be in very good hands. Harbour Air has been operating in the Vancouver area for many years and has an impeccable safety record. They offer flights ranging from a quick 10 minute circle offering great views of downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park and the Harbourfront area all the way to flights into pristine alpine mountain lakes or across the Georgia Strait to Vancouver Island.

While this is not an inexpensive sightseeing option, it will certainly be a memorable experience that you may wish to consider if it's within your budget. Otherwise you may just want to enjoy watching the planes arrive and depart from their docks on the Vancouver waterfront. Check out the You Tube video below to see just how spectacular these flights are on a nice day.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Had an amazing experience flying over the Harbour and the city. You get magnificent views of the city and the surrounding areas while your on this 20.mins flight. Seaplane is an unique experience, and I believe Vancouver harbour is one of the best place for it.

5 Star Rating An amazing experience! The city's panoramic views and magnificent landscapes create an unforgettable and marvelous experience from above. To ensure the best experience, I highly recommend reserving a seat in advance. The seats positioned directly behind the pilot provide the clearest and most exceptional views, making them a top choice for an unforgettable aerial journey.

3 Star Rating Expensive service but shaves down at least 3 hrs from the commute compared to the ferry. They've recently upped their prices for luggage by a ridiculous amount. I was going to be charged nearly a 100 bucks for my carryon. Another positive is the views can't be beat!

5 Star Rating When the staff heard I was on the Mail Run, they were as enthusiastic as me and offered me the right seat up front for my flight out of Vancouver Harbour and into Maple Bay. That was no question the highlight of my trip to Vancouver. Everyone was very friendly and made my tour special. I can't wait to come back and fly with them again.

5 Star Rating We booked a scenic tour over Vancouver and had a fantastic trip. The flight was about 20 minutes but the taking off and landing on the water was a great experience. The views were fantastic as it was a beautiful sunny day. Although this is not a cheap treat it was well worth the money. I had some email correspondence with the team and they were great, prompt and very professional.
