Amazing experience
Sep 2019
We flew from Vancouver to Whistler on Thursday, 19th of September, 2019 with the 9 am flight. It was a great adventure with beautiful landscapes. At Whistler, a very pleasant Harbour Air employee drove us from the lake to the village. He took time to explain tourists informations and was available for any questions / recommandations.

Beautiful scenery
Jul 2019 • Couples
The staff on arrival were very welcoming and friendly, our flight was not full so we were able to choose our seats and had plenty of space to see the views. The outgoing flight was incredible- truly unbelievable scenery. I highly recommend. On arrival at Whistler, we used the free shuttle into town which was easy and quick. There was also the option of bike hire. We were then collected at the end of the day by the bus which was prompt to take us back to the port.
The return flight was very turbulent, I think the fact that it was cloudy towards the end of the day contributed to this and as a result the views were foggy! I would say that personally our experience would not have been any less if we had taken the bus back rather than taking the sea plane both ways.
All in all a great experience.

So worth it
Aug 2018 • Solo
If you are without a car, I highly recommend flying at least one way to/from Whistler. This was so stress free and easy, and the views were insane. I was on the first flight of the morning over to Whistler, and it was aboard one of the planes equipped for touring so the pilot gave us a mini tour on the way. He spouted off tons of great information and made the flight even better. They bring their planes back to Vancouver each night, so if you take the first flight to Whistler you might end up on their tour plane, and if you are lucky to have a fantastic pilot, then you will get a little tour as well!

Liz L, Thank you so much for the kind words and recommendation! The flight to Whistler is spectacular, and you're right - if it is a sunny day, you experience a tour on the way to Whistler. We are pleased to hear you agree that seaplanes offer a convenient and easy way to travel to the surrounding destinations, in an efficient and time sensitive fashion. We are so pleased you enjoyed the experience and hope to welcome you aboard again soon! - Harbour Air TripAdvisor Team

Clearly a good decision to make!
Jul 2018 • Couples
It was perfect sunny morning after raining on previous day. Check in line was long, but that's not for our flight. Our flight was operated by Whistler Air and not Harbour Air - maybe that's why the information of our flight wasn't on the information screen, neither announced by the loud speaker. It made me a bit confused looking for information during the boarding time.

Our flight to Whistler was full but we managed to book single seat on the left side of the plane. A bit nervous at the beginning, but the pilot flied and landed it super smoothly.

What I want to make it clear is that unlike scenic helicopter flight I took in New Zealand and Australia, this flight is not a real scenic tour flight, but mere a short real flight. Means : the pilot wont turn around or slow down to provide similar scenic view for the guest on left side and right side. So I who sat in left side left jealous by the scenic view the right side passengers had. And the first two seat on the right side where you get the best spot for view are not for reserved. And don't expect any explanation or communication with the pilot because it is not a tour flight.

Still, this flight is worth to take, especially to save some time to travel and to travel with style, pampered by perfect view from above. Will definitely take this flight again if there's another opportunity :)

TravediaID, Thank you so much for your review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your trip to Whistler We are happy to hear you secured a single seat for your comfort during the flight. In regard to the scenic portion of the flight, you are correct - this is a scheduled flight with service between Vancouver and Whistler and although the flight is scenic, it is not intended as a scenic tour. Once in Whistler, we do offer scenic flights ranging from 20 to 60 minutes. We appreciate the recommendation and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back aboard soon! - Harbour Air TripAdvisor Team

Brilliant
Jul 2017 • Family
Always wanted to fly in a float plane and it was as good as I had hoped. Because you fly through the mountains it is a bit turbulent but the view of the mountains, valleys and lakes are amazing and when you arrive in Whistler it is so beautiful. The village is packed with bars, restaurants and shops - do not bypass the Rocky Mountain Chocolate shop!!
So glad we hired bikes as the area is lovely to cycle around.
