Terrible
Cheron_S
, Aug 2022
There’s no mention on the confirmation email nor ticket about being there half hour ahead of departure. We arrived 15 mins. prior. The plane had not started its engines. They told us it had left. They told me to rebook and would issue a refund. After I rebooked and repaid they denied the refund.

An amazing experience
Parag_B
, Aug 2022
The tour is an amazing experience not only because it’s a seaplane and it was first time for us to take off and land on water but also because we got absolutely breathtaking views of the Vancouver city, various hills surrounding it as well as the vast sea and innumerable boats of different sizes. The only thing wanting for us was that we assumed that the commentary will be available by default as the ticket said English speaking guide but only after boarding the seaplane we realised that it to be taken extra. So, we did not have access to the commentary!

I gifted my parents this trip on their first visit to Vancouver and was glad to see smile on their face after the trip. The only thing we missed was enhanced view of cityscape due to cloudy weather. But overall all staff members and the pilot have a very friendly and supportive approach.

It was really fun, my partner and I enjoyed our time. The views were insane and it was absolutely worth it. The only downside was harbour air was very disorganized with getting everyone checked in and situated with what they needed before the flight
