It was an overcast day, so the scenery could have been more spectacular than it was. It was interesting that we were on a sightseeing trip while other passengers were simply traveling to Seshelt. Seshelt was a cozy little town. We were there for 2 1/2 hours. a little too long. On the flight back we were the only passengers. My granddaughter got to sit next to the pilot. Very cool. The pilot was very professional and so were all the personnel we dealt with. An unforgettable experience. Thank you.

While over from the UK on an Alaska cruise we just wanted to say we had been in a seaplane... so booked a return flight, had 30 mins in the pub before we returned to Nanaimo... Brilliant. A tick off my bucket list! Was a quick, simple boarding process, great pilot, thrilling take offs and landings and wonderful scenery! highly recommended
