With a thirteen year old nephew freshly visiting from Italy, we wanted to show him the beauty of Salt Spring Island (a favourite escape of ours from nearby Victoria) from every vantage point. My wife and I are no strangers to small-aircraft flights; we have taken all kinds of scenic aerial tours in many locations, and as a licensed pilot... More

I had the pleasure of flying to Salt Spring Island. My flight was amazing. From calling in to book short notice, superior service on check-in and a pilot that was friendly and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to point out landmarks. The landing at Maple Bay was so smooth, I had to look out the window to see... More

We were stuck on Galliano Island due to a screw up with BC Ferries (they didn't have enough staff to take the walk ons! Be forewarned, being a walk on passenger does not mean that you will definitely get on the boat!) We tried to book a floatplane charter with Harbour Air, but nobody was available because it was Sunday... More

Fabulous way to sightsee this wonderful location. Our pilot, St Clair was very competent, informative and reassuring for passengers who were enjoying their first flight in a light aircraft. I would highly recommend anyone to take advantage of this great service.

I have flown with SaltSpring Air numerous times, and I have had nothing but good experiences. All of the staff are personable and kind. Even when they recognize everyone on the plane, they proceed to do the safety briefing, which gives me some peace of mind of their safety standards. The rides provide magnificent views of the surrounding landscapes, and... More

Soar above Vancouver. Sluice through mountain passes to land at Indian Arm Inlet for a short walk to a waterfall. No better way to spend an hour. Saint Clair was terrific pilot. Not cheap but fair and worth it.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
