Did you know our Inner Harbour is an official "airport"?
Also known as the Victoria Harbour Water Airport, it is where our floatplanes taxi, take off and land. Floatplanes, also known as water planes or sea planes are small aircraft with pontoons. Sea planes is a generic term for planes that take off and land on the water - some types of sea planes use their fuselage for buoyancy such as Port Alberni's Martin Mars which are the world's largest flying boats (used primarily for forest fire fighting).
West coast sightseeing trips booked through the Victoria Flying Club operate from their location at the Victoria International Airport in North Saanich on the peninsula. Helijet (helicopter) trips take off and land at their waterfront location beside the cruise ship terminal at the Breakwater District.
Because you want your trip to be memorable - in all the best ways - we highly recommend you book at least one excursion with a private guide. Enjoy a fully narrated trip in a private luxury vehicle, personalized for you and your guests. Compare tours here and find the perfect one for you.
