“Salt Spring Air is the BEST!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

I have had the good fortune to fly Salt Spring Air between Vancouver Airport ("the river") and Salt Spring Island for many years, making this flight at least once a month. The Salt Spring Air pilots are all professional, extremely competent and safety conscious. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The office staff is efficient and gracious. My husband and I have had the unfortunate experience on several occasions to fly with the "other" airlines that fly this same route. Salt Spring Air is the equivalent of first class.

“Sensational experience”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

I recently flew with Saltspring Air from Vancouver Airport Terminal 2 to Salt Spring Island. The customer service was excellent, right from the first phone call. I was given the "jump seat" as I had never been in a float plane before. What an experience! The pilot was terrific, he set me up with head phones and a mic so that we could talk about the flight and the view as we flew over the ocean and the other Gulf Islands. Take off and landing was smooth and un eventful - yeh! The pilot was informative, friendly and had a super sense of humor. The entire flight was about 25 minutes and was very affordable. I would recommend this as a quick alternative to the ferry, and offers an incredible overview of the islands. And of course once you are there, you have the most glorious island on the west coast to explore!
