Great, in good weather!

Unfortunately we got caught on our trip rainy weather. A trip with the zodiak was accordingly uncomfortable (rain felt like pinpricks and despite the protective suit we were wet to the bones) You can't say anything bad about the restaurant, the staff was more than nice, the food was good and there was perfect food for everyone. You could choose from 2 starters (green salad with feta or seafood), there were also 3 main dishes (fish & chips, beef burger or an beyond meat burger (vegan)). The landlady even took over our drinks (probably had pity). Unfortunately, the seaplane flight was not outstanding. The pilot was ok and due to the weather we had slight turbulence and no view of the city. If the weather had been on our side, it would have been a wonderful trip.

The tour was very nice and well worth the money. The ride with the Zodiac was adventurous and a lot of fun. Our guide Darren looked after the guests very attentively. At dinner there was unfortunately only a 2-course menu (only starter and main course, drinks are charged extra), no 3-course menu, as confirmed. That is a small minus point. There was nothing wrong with the food. The seaplane arrived a little later than planned, but everything else was great. We were lucky enough to be the only passengers on the return flight. The return flight over the islands and Vancouver was simply beautiful and will always be remembered thanks to our pilot Chris.
