What To Expect

Your seaplane flight over Victoria begins directly at the Victoria Harbour Airport. Choose from numerous convenient start times, make your own way to the airport, and complete a smooth check-in and boarding process. With a maximum of only 13 fellow passengers, this shared flight is a cost-effective but still intimate way to see the sights.

Then, with your expert pilot at the helm, take to the skies. You’ll get to admire a perspective of Victoria that few other visitors get to see. Soak up views of the harbour and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and even look out for the Olympic Mountains in the distance. As you go, capture photos of the scenery. You’ll spend around 20 minutes in the air—enough time for a good overview of the region’s popular highlights.

After enjoying a water landing experience—itself a distinct experience—you’ll arrive back at the Victoria Harbour Airport, where this tour ends.
