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.

Harbour Air Seaplanes Sightseeing Tours Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating We had such a an amazing experience on this sea plane! We took the coastal mountains tour and it was well worth it! It was a bit cloudy out so they notified us that the route would change a little bit but they let us know far in advance to be safe and make sure we were okay with that which of course we were. The pilot was so nice and explained everything to us, she let me sit in front and the views were just spectacular! The flight was so smooth and we even got to land out in the open to see how it felt and then taking off again which was a fun experience. I'm excited to go again on another tour to see what else we can experience on their tours and this great company.

5 Star Rating Day trip to Victoria from Vancouver. We were fortunate to have nice weather. It was smooth flying. Takeoffs and landings were much smoother than those of the commercial jets. The whole check-in process was efficient. The staff was friendly. Neat experience. I highly recommend trying it unless you’re afraid of flying.

5 Star Rating We booked the sightseeing flight almost two months ago and were really excited about what to expect. Today, Easter Monday, was the day. As we were early enough at check-in, we were given two tickets for priority boarding. When we arrived at the aircraft, the captain offered to let one of us sit in the co-pilot's seat. As a big aeroplane fan, I didn't need to be told twice. The flight itself was great. We flew towards the mountains, then downtown, past beautiful nature and over blue water. The sun did the rest and bathed Vancouver in a fantastic light. Unfortunately, the 20 minutes went by very quickly. The flight was worth every cent. We will be back and then book a longer flight.

5 Star Rating It was indeed a wonderful flight with a well experienced and friendly Pilot. We took a 20 minute scenic tour in Vancouver and it was absolutely beautiful! *It was a Butter Landing* Thanks to the Pilot.
