Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I always wanted to take the seaplane to go to Victoria and return and finally did it.

Harbour Air ask you to arrive 30min before your scheduled time. When you arrive, you have a very nice cosy lounge area with complimentary coffee.

Check-in is very quick, easy and efficient. Small Cafe and a boutique for souvenirs.

Boarding the seaplane is quick, you have the safety belt for the floating device to attach as well as your regular seatbelt.

Security demonstration are done through and I-Pad placed by the co-pilot and ensure if we have any questions before taking off.

The best part is the scenic view of Vancouver when you leave as well as when you arrive in Victoria and all the islands and water along the way. It is sooo beautiful!

For tourist point a view, it is stunning!

The landing is very cool!

With only 30 minutes flight, definitely recommend to anyone who wants to do a long or short trip to Victoria.

For the efficiency and the scenic beauty of the land, I would definitely recommend Harbour Air as your first option to travel to Victoria!

Unfortunately on our way to Victoria the weather suddenly changed. Rather than take any risk the pilot immediately turned around back to Vancouver where the weather was fine and landed. Despite not being able to explore Victoria we had a great aerial tour of the area with beautiful views and a vibrant rainbow that seemed to follow us the entire time. The staff at the “airport” couldn’t have been nicer snd our money was promptly refunded (we could reschedule another day because of other commitments).

Friday December 24, 2021 I was booked on the 1:30 flight from Vancouver Harbour to Victoria Harbour. Our flight took off but returned to the terminal because of snow. I was re-booked on the 2:30 but was also cancelled due to the weather, as well as all other flights that day. Three of us were offered a flight out of YVR Pacific Coastal and transported there for a fight at 7:30 which was also delayed and then required de-icing before take off. We landed at YYJ around 9:00ish.
All that being said I cannot say one thing in ill reference to the customer service, the staff at Harbour Air Vancouver Harbour. They were the most awesome and gracious folk I have ever encountered at any airport/services. The whole experience was quite stressful but we were definitely made to feel like we were the most important people that day. I am short of the right words on how you made me feel and the care you took to get us home. THANK YOU……an awesome experience out of a long day. To All those gracious folk Thank you, you all are the absolute Best!

the whole experience of flying on a seaplane from Vancouver harbour, landing at Victoria harbour then flying back to Vancouver was something to remember as never done a flight from water to water,the view was amazing so many little islands scattered about,boats here,there and everywhere and the noise from the twin otter was just crazy but nice.
It isn't cheap but very enjoyable,even my other half who isn't a big fan of flying said it was very enjoyable.
the first flight I wasn't by the window but the second flight I took a video of the journey as I was by the window and had my camcorder with me.

A very good smooth and efficient flight.
I would definitely say this is the best way to get from Van to Vic or vice versa.
Only grumble is we were charged for excess baggage only to be told 10 mins later that this was in error.
Money out money back so a minor problem really.

this was one of the best things we did while we were in Vancouver! I'm so glad we did this. My husband told me he will never do it again as he did not enjoy how bumpy the ride was. The views of Vancouver harbor and Victoria harbor are truly stunning. We enjoyed the lighthouses you could see while flying over. The first flight we were flying in the rain and had no issues at all. I really like that they cover your luggage for you in plastic so your items don't get wet. Thank you for a terrific experience. my 12 year old daughter enjoyed it also.

My flight was cancelled due to the smoke in Vancouver. I got a personal call from the company to alert me to the change in plans, and they let me rebook for the next day- for no extra charge. Then, my new flight was cancelled again owing to the smoke, and I was notified right away. Every time I have used Harbour Air, I am always satisfied; the people who work there are genuinely kind, very organized and highly professional. I would recommend them to any of my close family and friends!

You always get a window seat! The Twin Otter plane is super fun, and the views were spectacular. I did this trip both ways, and it was super easy, and probably the same price as the ferry if you account for all the TIME i saved. We all know, time is money...

Free shuttle from Vancouver to the seaplane terminal. Just a short walk to the seaplane terminal from the bus stop. Friendly staff at the terminal/ flying beaver. Free drink at the beaver bar as were gold package passengers. Really nice Canadian bar overlooking the water. Great spot to watch the seaplanes coming in and going out. Smooth flight into Victoria. Very good service
