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.
