Wonderful experience

The sea plane and Victoria Island are wonderful. The 45 minute bus ride to the ferry that then took us back to Vancover (11/2 Hours) then a 45 minute bus ride to the hotel was not expected. It went fine. The ferry had a good buffet.

Flying in a seaplane was the most amazing experience. We were very fortunate as it was a beautiful sunny calm day. My husband got to sit in the co-pilot's seat which was an added bonus. The trip back on the ferry was very pleasant. All in all we had a fabulous day.

Great experience - smooth ride on seaplane and back on ferry. Victoria is lovely and worth visiting for the day.

First time on a seaplane, and what a great experience! Cloudless blue sky, not a breath of wind and sitting next to the pilot - what's not to like? The journey from Vancouver to Victoria was about 40 minutes with superb clear-as-a-bell views over north and west Vancouver, Vancouver Island and the approach into Victoria harbour. I didn't realise that Victoria is the capital of British Colombia, but it is. After spending a few hours in the city, there was a 40 minutes coach drive to the BC Ferries terminal at Sydney, then a 90 minutes boat journey back to south Vancouver. An added bonus was seeing a pod of 6 'killer' whales pass by the ferry boat on the starboard side. This was a great trip and one I would highly recommend, although maybe I wouldn't have said that if the wind had been high or visibility not so good.

Great flight however I would return by air and not the ferry as it would give more time to explore the Island and town.
