Up, up and away! See the city of Vancouver and the beautiful surrounding mountains from the air on a scenic seaplane tour. Escape the crowds on an ideal introductory tour of Vancouver from above. This is a small group tour with a maximum of 14 passengers.
  • Take to the sky over Vancouver on this seaplane tour with a skilled pilot 
  • See the city from up above for a unique, scenic vantage point
  • Return home with incredible aerial photographs from the flight
  • Easy-to-find meeting spot takes the stress out of going to a new place
  • Choose from multiple flight times to fit your schedule
What to Expect
Meet for your seaplane tour on Canada Place in downtown Vancouver. Greet your pilot, hop aboard your small seaplane, and get ready for unique views and an aerial exploration of the city. Once seated and ready to go, the plane engine roars up, and you take off from the water and into the sky. During your around-30-minute sightseeing flight, catch views of Vancouver’s main attractions, including Stanley Park and the 2010 Olympic buildings. From the sky you can enjoy the sights of downtown Vancouver without being amidst the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets. Have your camera ready to take fantastic pictures. After your time soaring above the city, your pilot brings your seaplane down for a water landing in the harbor. Your tour ends at the same downtown location where you met your pilot. Please note: It is possible for flight times to change depending on weather.

The experience is worth it for the price. You are a given a 20 min flight. Whereas a helicopter ride is perhaps a similar price but for much shorter flight. You are offered free coffee/tea and a cookie which was not expected.

Vancouver is a beautiful city, and seeing it from an airplane was an amazing experience. I had never flown in a seaplane before, so that was also part of the motivation to take this tour. The tour is not cheap, but it's worth every penny.
