On time departure... great first time experience in Turbo Otter. We had a great flight and the beautiful scenery was even more amazing from the air! The Gardens were lovely with their fall color, and the entire experience was so well organized and planned. Graham, who drove the bus to Buchart gardens, shared details about the area from his experience growing up on the island.

Probably the highlight of our Vancouver vacation; a brilliant day.

This trip gives an opportunity to see a little more of the area around Vancouver. It gets you into the air with some great views both at take-off and on the return trip but you also get out to Vancouver Island with the stop at Victoria itself as well as the short bus ride out to Butchart Gardens. You can easily spend a very pleasant 2 hours there following the guide route. It's a brilliant day.

Peefect organization and great day in Victoria

The seaplane flight to/from Victoria was stunning! Such great views! The seaplane harbours both in Vancouver and Victoria are in a very convenient location and the staff of Harbour Air are friendly and efficient. In Victoria there's plenty of time and scheduled bus trips to the Butchart Gardens, plus enough time to visit the downtown area. This tour is worth the extra money (if compared to the one with the ferry trip to Victoria), because it really allows you to enjoy the whole day in Victoria. I strongly recommend it!
