Bucket list experience. Just do it!
Jul 2021
What a beautiful flight we had! The absolute best way to see the mountains for what they are worth! Beautiful blue skies and lakes! Eric was our guide and he gave us great pertinent info. Loved every second of it. Great little plane to fly in. I would put this on your bucket list!

What a memorable experience, seeing Black Tusk that close was magical. The pilot was super fun, informative and safe. I gave this as a present to my fiancé and he said it was one of the best experiences of his life.

Great experience
Jan 2021
A beautiful January day with clear skies and no wind allowed us to have an incredible experience. We toured the Tantalus Range and Whistler and Mt Garibaldi Park—we quickly ran out of superlatives to describe what we were seeing. The most boring thing on this flight was us going “Oh wow!” Over and over.

"oh wow" will never be a boring response to be heard when we are flying! Winter flying can provide some of the most extraordinary experiences, it sounds like you had that and then some!

David was our pilot for this flight. He was timely, professional and very knowledgeable. Everything was relaxed but ran on time. We had a bit of smoke/haze, but the scenery was still jaw-dropping and David added great commentary/answered any questions we had. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see Garibaldi Provincial Park from a unique and incredible perspective.

Sep 2020
My wife and I received a gift card for this flight, not something we would normally do though. So thankful we took this trip on our wedding anniversary, it was so memorable. Right from arriving we were greeted by our pilot and given instructions for the flight. Felt very welcome and comfortable during this time of Covid. Aside from the incredible scenery our pilots knowledge was second to none of the area and landscape history. We will be back for a different adventure for sure and would absolutely recommend this flight to anyone. Great job by Sea to Sky Air!!!

Wow, thank you so much! First of all, how great is it being given a gift card that prompts you to do something you wouldn't normally do?! We're so happy to hear that you had such a great time, and thank you also for letting us know that our COVID policies made you comfortable for your flight. We can't wait to take you up again.

We were blessed with a sunny December morning flight tour out of Squamish. Vicky, our talented pilot, flew us up Paradise Valley and over Garibaldi Lake. We circled around Black Tusk and Garibaldi Peak. We passed over Whistler and the Quest University Canada campus. The experience with my daughter created an unforgettable memory for both of us.

Thank you Jason for making this flight very much a comfortable and easy to deal with while being terrified of heights. The ‘average’ photos I took up there do not make justice how beautiful BC is!

Whistler Glacier by Airplane
Jun 2019 • Couples
The decision to arrange a Vancouver tour via airplane was absolutely the best one could we could have made. We invited our tour guide Frank to accompany us and he too enjoyed it as much as we did. Sea to Sky Air provided us with the company's best pilot [my apologies for not remembering his name] and he went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. I have always said "there is something on the other side of any mountain", and the Squamish tour proved confirmed it. There are literally lakes, ponds, snow covered summits and so many of Nature's hidden treasures. We flew around The Black Tusk to witness how enormous it really is. Imagine only seeing a few feet of this peak from the ground and discovering its true height of more than 1,800 feet from the air....WOW!!!!!
Pictures and videos via air by comparison dwarfs pictures by any other means. So many thanks to the Staff at Sea to Sky Air. We will be back!!

Amazing
Amazing flight (Whistler Air Backcountry Safari). Great pilot, comfortable ride and flexible company. We were able to reschedule to two days before as the weather forecast was rainy. Got a beautiful sunny flight an hour after we called. Was able to get the plane window open to capture good photos. Well done!

Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed the Whistler Backcountry Air Safari! That's definitely one of the more popular tours we offer as you get to see all the main sights of the Sea to Sky corridor. We love it when our customers are able to get the perfect shot! Thanks for coming along.
