The Mail Run Seaplane Tour

See how people live on Canada’s west coast by joining the locals on one of the regular flights from Vancouver harbour over the beautiful Gulf Islands. Includes a touchdown at a seaside village with time to explore.

Given the geographical nature of western British Columbia, many people actually use planes to get to work and back and you can join the locals on this scenic commute.

The adventure begins with an exhilarating take off directly from Vancouver's picturesque Coal Harbour.

Once airborne, gaze down in awe as you pass over the rugged fjordland and picturesque villages of the beautiful Gulf Islands which stretch into the distance.

The plane lands at Saltspring Island in front of a seaside village where you can hop off for a stroll through some of the quaint shops before returning on a later flight to Downtown Vancouver.
