We went on a day trip to butchard gardens and took the seaplane- it is very efficient and quick, there were 10 people on the plane. The pilot explained a few issues and off we went, 35 mins later we landed very smoothly.

Incredibly beautiful views of Vancouver. I took the 6:30 flight and since it was July, there was still plenty of sunshine. Don't miss this - it was reasonably priced and memorable.
