It was promoted as a 40 minute tour of the Strait of Georgia, but it was a round trip flight to Sechelt with a 4 hour wait for the return flight to Nanaimo. We enjoyed walking around Sechelt for 4 hours, but that was not what we were planning on or signed up for. The staff was

This was my second trip on a float plane ; first was with Seair which I really enjoyed. Of course, the 1/2 price flight helped as well as free parking. I also remember taking numerous cell phone pictures. Harbour Air doesn't let you use your cell phone for some reason. I would

blakeh1313, Thank you for choosing to fly with Harbour Air Seaplanes! We are pleased to hear our teams were friendly during your visit, providing the quick, efficient and safe service we are known for! As you've noticed, Harbour Air takes safety very seriously. We ask all guests to prohibit the use of their cellphones on the docks, this is due to the busy environment which surrounds them - we want to be sure passengers' full attention is devoted to these surroundings. As for cellphone use in flight, similar to other airlines, we ask passengers to have their cellphone in airplane mode as these wireless transmissions affect the communication between our pilots, dispatch and air traffic control. We thank you for your understanding and appreciate you taking the time to ask about this. We look forward to welcoming you aboard again soon! to ensure you have the most comfortable flight possible, we've provided complimentary earplugs in the seat pocket in front of you. - Harbour Air TripAdvisor Team

This company is great - you can get from Nanaimo to Vancouver or Sechelt in 20 minutes to 30 minutes and you are right in the heart of Nanaimo or Vancouver. From there you have easy access to public transport, etc. The planes afford a great view of the area and the pilot/staff
