Amazing views great staff

Our Air Canada flight from Montreal was grounded and arrived 5 hours later than scheduled and we were unable to make our harbour flight at the time we had booked and confirmed. When I explained the situation they were amazing and moved us to a later flight the same day at no charge. It was really appreciated. Very nice staff. We loved the flight.

The service of the staff at Harbour Air was great. The views expected on the flights between Vancouver and Victoria unfortunately were extremely reduced due to the smoke of the forest fires. We accept that Harbour Air had no control over that.

Oh my goodness! It was the best thing ever. Cannot recommend enough. I'm slightly claustrophobic so I was a little worried before the flight. As soon as I got in the plane, my worries evaporated. It was roomy and lots of windows so you don't feel the least bit trapped. We did pay the extra 10 to get confirmed window seats. That was well worth it! Our bags weighed a little too much, so we paid a small fee. Also well worth the price. It allowed us to have a full day and night in Victoria before heading out from Vancouver the next day. Wish we had made the return flight to Vancouver on the seaplane. We took Air Canada, and it wasn't nearly as much fun! Got a cute picture of my daughter with the pilot and one with a young man visiting from Australia who got to be the co-pilot.

I have always wanted to take a flight in a seaplane. It was a beautiful, clear day with a lot to see as we flew to Victoria. We only had one day to tour before our cruise ship disembarked. This was a quick, memory making trip. We had a little trouble locating the place to check-in. It is a separate smaller building, located along the docks.

Michael our pilot from down under was kind enough to allow me to co-pilot on the journey ride back to Vancouver, great service with a smile and good to speak to an expat that knows the area and can recommend places to see and visit. It was my husbands first time on a sea plane and he loved it. A great way to see Victoria and Vancouver if you are limited to time.

Saved SOOO much time! Captain was experienced and qualified. We landed right in the heart of the action in Victoria's Inner Harbor - no ferry line-ups or traffic-would happily do it again
