Unforgettable experience.
, Jul 2021
Incredible view, each his own window. The impression of being able to touch the glacier, diversity of landscapes, the color of the lakes in height. Safe and smooth flight.

Garibaldi Lake

Terrific flight. Pilot was a great commentator and really knew the area well. I have been coming to Whistler for decades and I can't believe I left it this long to take this flight. Certainly a "Must do" for anyone coming to the area.

We had probably one of the nicest days in 2019 the views were fantastic! Pilot was great, informing us of all the different landmarks on the way. Would definitely recommend this Float Plane trip to anyone, well worth it if the skies are clear!

Wow amazing. We were a family of 5 and the tour was just beyond our expectations. The pilot was excellent; experienced and very knowledgeable. A great way to spend 40 minutes from beginning to end
Wonderful Experience
, Jun 2018
The scenery was awesome and the numerous staff that work at Harbour Air made it a truly wonderful experience! We had a great interaction with the staff that handled the website and phone service, then we were greeted by very welcoming and cheerful people at the desk. We had two separate tours and the pilots were funny, easy to talk with, and very knowledgeable. Harbour Air accommodated a last minute request for shuttle service for our senior parents and the driver was very nice! Thank you for an unforgettable experience!
