Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Get a unique view of the beautiful city of Vancouver, marveling at its scenic harbor, surrounding mountains and beautiful architecture, during this 20-minute seaplane flight. You'll take off from the water of Vancouver's busy downtown harbor, continuing on a aerial exploration of some of the city's beautiful skyline and lush pine tree-covered surroundings.

Start your seaplane flight from Canada Place in Downtown Vancouver. Depending on the time you select, your flight will leave at either 10:30am, 2:30pm or 6:45pm. Climb aboard your seaplane and feel the engines whir up to full power as you gracefully glide above the water and up into sky. 

During the course of your flight you'll be able to observe landmarks like Vancouver's emerald-green Stanley Park, its bustling downtown, and the buildings constructed for the city's hosting of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Then come back down to earth (or water, rather) touching back in the harbor with a splash, having enjoyed a one-of-a-kind view of this unique Canadian city.

Please note: flight times are approximate and subject to change depending on weather conditions and weight limits.

Traveler Tips


  • "We went on Canada Day so it was very busy at Canada Place and a little difficult to get down to the check-in area, but on a normal day I assume it would be a lot easier." See review
  • "Stars for pilot and experience I highly recommend arriving 30-40 minutes early- the office was hard to find from the side which I approached from and it took a while to find." See review
  • "The time flew and what a smooth landing, a must when visiting Vancouver …." See review

Awesome experience

Awesome experience. Nice to give a surprise to your loved ones. We were worried about the weather playing a spoilsport. But it didn't matter much as they fly quite low. So its worth flying even on an overcast day.

Fabulous! We took 3 family members and throughly enjoyed our tour! The pilot did an outstanding job so each of us could view all the mountain ranges and the city from both sides of the plane. We would do it again without a second thought! Thank you VST!

Cancelled but still charged me

I bought this experience, but 2 hours before flight, the fog and cloud ceiling was so low I couldn’t see water from my hotel room. They cancelled flight but still charged my card. I am disputing the charge as the conditions were horrific and customer service in this process was awful. I wouldn’t recommend this at all unless it’s summer and only good weather. My experience was very poor.
