Mix up your regular way of doing—and seeing—things while visiting Vancouver, and experience the city from up in the air on this seaplane tour. Not only can you get perspectives and pictures of the city you wouldn’t get from a bus or walking tour, but you also take off and land on the water—adding a splash landing to all adventure seekers' Vancouver vacations.
What to Expect

Meet for your seaplane tour on Canada Place in downtown Vancouver. Greet your pilot, hop aboard your small seaplane, and get ready for unique views and an aerial exploration of the city.

Once seated and ready to go, the plane engine roars up, and you take off from the water and into the sky.

During your around-30-minute sightseeing flight, catch views of Vancouver’s main attractions, including Stanley Park and the 2010 Olympic buildings. From the sky you can enjoy the sights of downtown Vancouver without being amidst the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets. Have your camera ready to take fantastic pictures.

After your time soaring above the city, your pilot brings your seaplane down for a water landing in the harbor. Your tour ends at the same downtown location where you met your pilot.

Please note: It is possible for flight times to change depending on weather.
