We used this air service to fly from Whistler to Vancouver and I have to say the pilot was very very good. I was a little worried because it didn't seem we were very far from the tops of mountains. The views were just magnificent and my wife was enjoying the whole thing,

40 minutes in a seaplane taking off from Green Lake and touring the mountains and glaciers around Whistler. Worth every penny. The views were more stunning than words allow. The set up was highly professional and the pilot very informative during the flight. Fabulous.

We decided to give this a try whilst staying in Whistler and we can really recommend this awesome seaplane flight. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the lake where we had to hand in our passports and waited eagerly on the platform watching the seaplanes land and take off. There are a few chairs to sit... More
