This was my husband first Father's Day gift and one that he'll remember. Hubby had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit and get a bit of a unique perspective. The pilot was great and very accommodating with our 1 year old son. The views were spectacular and we went to a few new places in the following days based on what we saw from the air.

Excellent adventure for the price. Great pilot who surged as a guide.

We purchased tickets through a third party and we're not provided with the time of the flight. We had to call in and ask for our times which took some time for the agents to find our reservations. However, the adventure was great and our kids loved it. A must do activity for anyone visiting Vancouver.

Excellent tour, friendly staff.

I booked the trip for a friend and myself. My friend wasn't able to make it, but I still went by myself. It's still worth going on the trip, and seeing all that is around Vancouver, from the infrastructure, to the ferries, and all the many ships/boats in the harbour. It's incredible. Not to mention the mountain views. Well worth the cost.
