There’s the feeling of adventure you get while taking a floatplane flight. Skipping along the water before taking off and flying just high enough to top the Lions Gate Bridge or the tallest timber in Stanley Park. Waching the pilot’s careful movements, taking photos of a propeller spins so quickly it’s nearly impossible for the iPhone to capture it, and landing alongside boats in a bay with a friendly harbour seal popping up to greet you.

John and I participated in a flight around the Comox Glacier with Harbour Air earlier this season when we were in the area for the BC Shellfish Festival and I have to say, a scenic tour has never been so fun. Climbing to 6,000ft, from the tips of the Salish Sea’s waves to the snow-capped peaks that surround the Comox Glacier. One minute you’re looking out the window at clearcut pastures and lakes, and the next there’s a giant pillar of rock just off the tip of the wing. We definitely had our cameras our for this unique ride:

Harbour Air offers several scenic tours around Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Nanaimo, and Sechelt. The Comox Glacier Tour is not on the regular schedule but it can be requested. The tour was just 20 minutes long but it was absolutely thrilling to experience.
