    What a beautiful & amazing experience! A beautiful ride over the Vancouver Harbour on a very comfortable seaplane. The price was PERFECT & the crew was helpful & made sure we had a blast - Definitely recommend to anyone interested in a different vantage point of beautiful Vancouver.

    Float plane trip

    A 20 min flight is an ideal way of seeing a section of downtown Vancouver. The Terminal is to be found at the end of Thurlow St near to the Cruise Terminal Canada Place. The cost is slightly over $100 per person but it gives a very good panorama of the City taking you along the Burrard Inlet up to Horseshoe Bay in the west to Port Moody in the east, and flying over the famous Stanley Park and Lionsgate Bridge. Harbour Air operate many additional flights much depending on how much money you wish to spend

    Take off alongside of the cruise terminal A section of downtown Vancouver Lionsgate Bridge with Stanley Park in foreground Return to Terminal - A snug fit ! Flying over Lionsgate Bridge

    Not clearly visible on the picture, but definitely there: the Harbour Air(port). The number of small planes taking of and landing on the water is considerable.

    The harbour for (international) cruise ships is in the left lower corner of the picture. It's the building with the remarkable roof.

    The mountains in the background are Grouse Mountain (to the left) and Mount Seymour (to the right), both just north of Vancouver.

    The picture was taken from the top of the Harbour Center.

    In Vancouver it is difficult not to notice the seaplanes (or "loat planes") buzzing over the city and taking-off/landing in the harbour by Canada Place. So we decided to splash-out on a day return trip to Victoria by seaplane.

    It is expensive (CAD106 each way inc. taxes), but we thought that it was worth it . You take-off from the harbour, right by Canada Place, and get great views of the city (sit on the left hand side of the plane) or the North Shore and mountains (sit on the right).

    The weather was not brilliant the day we went , but since these planes don't fly very high (less than 1,000 ft probably), you still get a great view all the way. We flew right down the coast, over Vancouver Airport, the Tsawassen ferry terminal, and then over the gulf islands to Victoria.

    The take-off and landing is quite exhilerating too, but these are VERY noisy aircraft, so be warned!

    Look closely, you'll see this Twin Otter on Floats about to land in downtown Vancouver. He approached right over Stanley Park.
