This is truly a must do while in Vancouver, especially if travelling with friends or family. We have two young boys who both loved the whole thing (particularly take off and landing and the snow topped mountains!). The staff at Harbour Air were very friendly, and we had no problems getting checked in with the family, and were able to leave our bags in the terminal (at no extra charge). The terminal is well equipped, including the free coffee and pastries which we certainly made use of and were not expecting. The pilot was great, talked us through the route he was taking and what we should look out for and asked before take off if there was anything in particular anyone wanted to see. A very worthwhile (if slightly pricey) experience!
Good whale watching and seal experience only criticism was the boat very full. The staff on the boat were very knowledgable regarding the sea life.Also trip allowed a good time in Victoria which was a bonus before flying back to Vancouver.
We had a great trip. The flight was amazing and the whale watching great. However the airline was not expecting us and were very good at fitting us in. Thank goodness we checked the day before our booking!
Awesome views over Vancouver, the coastline and the surrounding mountains. Perfect organisation for check-in, take-off and landing.
