I love it..seeing Vancouver from up there was amazing..Loved Victoria too. I recommended it. It's a must do if you visit Vancouver.Reviewed by: Monette F, August 2012
We loved the seaplane ride from Vancouver to Victoria. There are more seats inside the plane than I thought there would be, but once we were settled in, it didn’t feel that cramped. Take-off was very smooth, and the plane is by far the best way to enjoy the gorgeous area between Vancouver and Victoria. Flying over all of the Gulf Islands is amazing – it’s so worth traveling by seaplane! The windows are pretty big and allow for great picture-taking. Landing is not quite as smooth, but splashing down into the water is pretty exciting. Victoria is a great place to spend a day: very charming, easily walkable, cute historic downtown district with some good restaurants.Reviewed by: Leah, USA, July 2012
Great trip. Terrific views of Vancouver Island and Stanley Park as you take off.
Saved nearly 3 hrs with using only the ferry for the return journey.
Would have been better if Viator offered an inclusive ticket for Buchart Gardens. However in the end it was not a problem to obtain an inclusive coach/admission ticket from Victoria tourist centre by the harbour.
What can I say??? This is one of the most memorable, exciting things we have ever done and we have travelled a lot. Seaplane experience was so exciting, reliable, great pilot and on time. The good thing about this tour is you have your transport to and fro Victoria then you can do your own thing in between. I would strongly recommend you also get thr Butchart Gardens tour from Viator and this gives you a free shuttle and entry into Gardens, a must. Ferry home was such a good experience, bus drives straight onto ferry, you grt off and go upstairs and then just before you dock you go back to bus and they drive off ferry to take you home. Definitely one of the best Viator tours we have ever done.Reviewed by: JENNIFER K, Australia, June 2012

It was the most perfect weather and fantastic to enjoy the views from both the plane and ferry. Really memorable experience.Reviewed by: Andrew L, June 2012
One of the highlights of my holiday in Canada. The seaplane was thrilling and the return journey by bus and ferry really interesting, seeing the journey we had made by air from a different perspective. Well worth the money.Reviewed by: Eleanor R, May 2012
Absolutely great. The seaplane experience was very good, with professional staff and an interesting low level flight to Victoria. The ferry ride back was a chance to relax, with the bus driver being particularly helpfulReviewed by: Colin S, Australia, April 2012
