Fantastic way to take in the sights of Vancouver

This is truly a must do while in Vancouver, especially if travelling with friends or family. We have two young boys who both loved the whole thing (particularly take off and landing and the snow topped mountains!). The staff at Harbour Air were very friendly, and we had no problems getting checked in with the family, and were able to leave our bags in the terminal (at no extra charge). The terminal is well equipped, including the free coffee and pastries which we certainly made use of and were not expecting. The pilot was great, talked us through the route he was taking and what we should look out for and asked before take off if there was anything in particular anyone wanted to see. A very worthwhile (if slightly pricey) experience!

Excellent flight and beautiful scenery

I would highly recommend this. No problems at all at the check-in desk, the flight was smooth, the pilot professional, and the scenery exquisite. What a great way to see Vancouver and surrounds if you only have a few days in the city. My only feedback is that it would have been even better with matching commentary. I got the headphones and audioguide but the pilot explained to us that he was going to take a different route than usual because of the weather. Not his fault obviously but the audioguide commentary no longer matched what we actually saw. Still there was some interesting information in it and the headphones also acted as mufflers which wasn't a bad thing with the noise of the plane.

As advertised and very fun

Takeoff was prompt, service was friendly. However, the desk staff seemed fairly poorly trained. I showed up with the confirmation e-mail I had received, but because I hadn't printed it out they scrambled to figure out what to do. I blame the management, as the staff seemed new/seasonal, and this wasn't exactly a unique or unforeseeable problem. They did solve the issue eventually, and I had a great time.
