Sunshine Coast: Sechelt Peninsula by Airby
The last stop on our Sunshine Coast weekend adventure was in Sechelt.

We had lunch at the Lighthouse Pub then walked over to WestCoast Air for a scenic flight of the peninsula.
It was really neat to fly right over the parts of the area we explored by boat just the day before. It was John’s first time in a float plane, which in itself is also an experience.
The ferry terminal, our resort, and even a few coastal mansions really stood out from above.
It was a cloudy, rainy day so we couldn’t see all the way over to the glacier on Vancouver Island but the view we did have was good enough for me.
WestCoast Air offers scheduled flights from Sechelt to Nanaimo, Jervis Inlet, and Richmond/YVR. I’ve also done a scenic tour above Vancouver with them before. Our flight was complimentary but you can book a one-way ticket from Sechelt to Nanaimo for about $67.

I know I’ve said it in the other posts as well but it’s amazing to think we did all of this in just a weekend and not once did we feel rushed. As Wendy from Libre Tea once told me, the Sunshine Coast is the “lost corner of the 604” but hopefully after this profile series it won’t be so lost anymore.
