Took the day trip from Vancouver to Whistler. The flight is just awesome! Very safe, yet you get incredible views of the mountains and glaciers. Our pilot narrated on the ride back, and he was very knowledgeable. You can't get this view any other way!More

Quick return flight to the island. The terminal was busy but everything was handled quickly and easily. Flight was on time, bit bumpy but nothing bad.
