What to expect
Instead of driving to Whistler from Vancouver, book this round-trip seaplane flight that gives you breathtaking aerial views and shorter travel time. Check in for your flight to Whistler at the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre at 8:30am. Aboard the seaplane that takes off at 9am, admire the aerial landscapes during the 35-minute flight. Land at Green Lake, Whistler, at 9:45am, and hop aboard a free shuttle to Whistler Village. Or if you’d like to get some exercise in, pick up a complimentary bike rental (helmet and lock included) and pedal off to the village. In Whistler Village, try any number of activities (own expense), including Peak 2 Peak, ziplining, hiking, shopping and more — it’s up to you. After a pleasant day, take the 6:10pm shuttle back to the Whistler Air/Harbour Air base. Check in at the Green Lake terminal at 6:40pm. Your seaplane is scheduled to depart at 7pm and touches down at the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre at 7:40pm.

Amazing flight and destination!
Aug 2019
The flight was incredible! We flew over glaciers and mountains with snow on them in August. We saw gorgeous green lakes and a wonderful view of Vancouver. Dakota was a great pilot and both of our water landings were very smooth. Whistler was a beautiful destination. We bought a day pass and rode each of the gondola routes. The views and the experience of walking across the Whistler Peak suspension bridge was amazing. We ate lunch at the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb. The prices were half the amount of Christine's but you can get a seat where the view is almost the same. The burger and hand cut fries were delicious. We had time for relaxing by Fitzsimmons Creek in Rebagliati Park for an hour before our flight back to Vancouver. I highly recommend this trip.

My Favorite Excursion by far in Vancouver
Aug 2019 • Solo
Wow, wow, wow. Talk about checking something off my bucket list. I booked the all day Whistler trip and it was just absolutely perfect. I arrived an hour before my scheduled departure and it was such an easy process. They even offer free coffee and water while you wait. The boarding process was so easy, it was basically first come first serve on seat selection. (Or you can pay $15 for an assigned single seat).
And then the excitement of the day begins. You take off on the bay, and yes it is bumpy but not scary at all, then as you get closer to the other side you start flying up. There was a little turbulence but it’s a small propeller seaplane, I expected that.
Then you take the most scenic airplane tour I have ever been to. They weave between the mountains, you see the mountain lakes and the glaciers that have never melted even though it’s the end of August. Make sure you have an extra battery charger/memory card because you literally can waste all of your memory space on your phone/camera from all the pictures you take.
Then you land on this beautiful green lake that is in this stunning scenic valley. You get off, grab your bag, and then you wait for the shuttle to come. The shuttle bus is about a 10-15 min drive or you can walk about 4 KM to get to Whistler Village. (Make sure you get the peak 2 peak and go to the top of the mountains and take a hike around the mountains and enjoy the stunning views from the summit).
Afterwards, I just walked around the village and got a few souvenirs. They had some restaurants around, but the food is nothing special there. Felt like every restaurant was a generic casual Chain type foods.
Around 6:20pm I met up with my shuttle bus driver and he took me back to the green lake to board the plane. I sat on the same seat to get a view of the other side of the scenery. I ended up using my phone instead of my camera because both of my camera batteries died. (Yes I took that many pictures).
But anyways, I just want to say if you do go to Vancouver this is a must do. This was easily my favorite part of my vacation and an experience I will always treasure.

Seaplane - wow
We caught the harbour air flight from Vancouver to whistler and was as amazing as we expected. The flight was smooth and all the staff were very professional.

It’s not cheap but if you fancy a once in a lifetime way to see an amazing part of the world then would thoroughly recommend doing it with harbour air

Fantastic day trip from Vancouver!
Sep 2017 • Solo
I took the Whistler Air trip (operated by Harbor Air) from Vancouver, mountain biked around Whistler, and caught the return flight to Vancouver that evening. This was the highlight of my week in Vancouver.
