This is a must do activity if you love flying and love beautiful scenery. This activity gives you plenty of both. Professionally run, everyone onboard had a window seat in the small 10-12 seater sea plane. You take off and land on water, good commentary...More

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.More

This trip was an experience and a half, we all loved it. The only down side was not being able to communicate with the pilot through the head sets so it was a very individual experience otherwise could not be faulted. Do not worry if...More

I'm having great difficulty planning my trip to Vancouver because Harbour Air say they need three passengers to run the trip. Fair enough - but, despite my visit being in peak season (July), when I ask them the probability, based on their past experience, of the trip running, they say 'Don't know'. That tempts me to bin the whole thing rather than be stuck in Whistler with no plane to catch. I can't plan a trip round something that won't happen. So when you went, what time of year was it and was there a queue or was the place deserted?
