Took my first float plane ride in September 2012. So much fun. Staff were very pleasant and efficient. Took the flight from Sechelt too Nanaimo. It isavery short flight, about 30 minutes from boarding to landing. Great scenery all the way and even better if you get the "co-pilot" seat! Great experience and terrific company. The even provide free coffee, tea, juice, fruit and Danish, pretty impressive for an airline these days!

We have flown Harbour Air a number of times, most recently for a weekend trip to Nanaimo. Really friendly staff, great pilots, and the views during the flight are unbeatable. It takes less time to fly to the Island than it takes us to drive to the ferry! 20 minute trip versus a whole day on the 2 ferries and in ferry lineups. I highly recommend Harbour Air.

Four of us are vacationing from the UK; my fiance loves all things to do with flying and as none of us had ever been on a floatplane we'd planned to take scheduled flights to and from Vancouver. Unfortunately a return wasn't available within our timescale - but the guys at Harbour Air took to the time to discuss options with us, and we went for a 30 minute tour instead. My fiance sat in the co-pilot seat and the rest of us were in the back - we flew in a DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver and although it looked small there was plenty of room for us - even my 6'5" son had enough head/legroom to sit comfortably. We chose a morning flight as we'd been advised by the staff at Harbour Air that the light's particularly good that time of day - it was wonderful to fly along Jervis Inlet and over places we'd visited over the last few weeks, including Skookumchuck, Ruby Lake, Pender Harbour, Smugglers Cove and Sargeants Bay. It was great to see Sechelt from the air too, and to fully appreciate how narrow this little strip of land is. The tour gave us a much better idea of the scale and beauty of the scenery along this part of the Sunshine Coast and whetted our appetite to explore even more. Thanks to Chad, our pilot, and the guys at Harbour Air for suggesting this tour to us, we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you have never taken a float plane as a mode of travel you are seriously missing out. I have flown with Harbour Air Seaplanes many times and have been highly delighted every single time. For one thing they have delivered me in 15 minutes to Vancouver Island from the Sunshine Coast which normally would have taken at least 4 - 5 hours by ferry and road. The view is breathtaking. You can never sense of the beauty of the Coast as you can do from the air. The crew are very professional and extremely helpful in assisting of the getting in and out of the plane which as a senior I appreciate. When you take into consideration how much the ferry fares are for cars, plus the meals you eat in transit on a road trip, and the price of gas, the air fare is pretty reasonable. Besides that it is a real thrill!
