Could you reccomend any airlines (large or small) that do sightseeing trips from Vancouver?
Well this airline is westcoast air and they do air tours around both Vancouver and Victoria. $100 CN will ususally get you a 30min flight around town in a float Beaver. You will need 4 people min before they will go typically. However if you feel like going to Victoria you can kill two bird with one stone and they sometimes fly with less people, thentake the ferry back to the mainland to save money on the return. Some local companies that do air tours are Westcoast/Baxter air (merged Baxter has the Beaver. Westcoast has the twin otters) Harbour air (they fly turbo single Otter and Beavers) and Seaair. Most of these guys fly out of/to Vancouver,YVR
seaplane base, Victoria, Nanaimo and they can do longer more expensive trips too. www.westcoastair.com www.harbourair.com www.seaairseaplanes.com
..Hope this helps.

Wow... nice video! I have lived in Victoria most of my life, but I still haven't taken a float plane over to Vancouver. I've taken the Helijet helicopter though, which I'm sure is just as much fun. Hope you enjoyed your time here!
Well I haven't been on heli-jet over to Vic either, so it's something new I'll have to try when I can afford a pleasure flight over there. I'm sure they are both equally noisy though
. I did have a good time over there, though it is quite quiet there right now. Still a nice and friendly city. Lots to see and do in a small area.
