Took advantage of Seair's free return flight from Nanaimo to Richmond on our recent trip to Cuba. Great friendly service. Can't believe the time I saved over travelling BC Ferries. cut my travel time down by more than half. Free shuttle right to YVR was appreciated. Will definitely use SEAIR again.

This is one of those win-wins: no ferry waits, online pricing is comparable to driving/ferry, parking is free for 6 days and $6/day after, it takes 15 minutes to get to the airport/20 to downtown Vancouver, instead of hours on the ferry, baggage is 35 lbs p/person (can send it ahead before flight), and free transfer to main terminal at...

Love this airline, newer faster planes and less expensive by $10 than the competition. Also parking. From Nanaimo to Richmond 13 minutes.

Have been flying with Seair for business regularly over the past 2 years. Very friendly and professional operation, and the Cessna Caravans are fast, quiet and roomy. I fly usually Nanaimo Harbour to downtown Vancouver, and once in a while to YVR south terminal. Seair's Nanaimo base is close to BC Ferries and a shorter drive from the north.

We took Seair's regularly-scheduled service from Vancouver Harbour to Nanaimo and loved it. The staff at check-in (Sherrie and the young man who handled the baggage) could not have been more pleasant. The flight itself was short and scenic, a great time saver.

Fortunate to take last flight of the day at 5:30pm on a beautiful sunny October which meant a stunning sunset flight. But first, the South Van Terminal lounge was nice to relax in. Wifi, coffee, newspapers, comfy chairs. The pilot was super nice and friendly. He knew all passengers on my flight who commute to Saltspring Island. That personal touch... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
