The flights depart from Seair Seaplane Terminal on the river near the Vancouver International South Terminal. This is only a 10-minute taxi or shuttle ride from the main Vancouver International Terminal or the suggested hotels where you will be staying. (See hotel information below). If you miss our chartered flight you will be responsible for getting yourself in to the lodge on the next available flight. Please note that this may not be until the next day & the cost is approximately $500/person one-way.
We highly recommend flying into Vancouver the night before your early morning seaplane flight to the lodge to avoid the inconvenience & extra expense you will incur if you miss your chartered flight to the lodge with us.
On your return date you will be back in Vancouver by approximately 3:00 PM. We recommend that you DO NOT book any flights out of Vancouver to your home destination before 5:30 PM. This allows time for travel from the Seair Seaplane Terminal to the International Airport Terminal, check-in, airport security & any other possible delays.
Returning guests please note that we changed airlines a few years ago & we no longer fly via Port Hardy. We fly directly to the lodge from Vancouver with Seair Seaplanes. This direct flight has greatly added to the quality, convenience & efficiency of the travel experience to the lodge. The flight time from Vancouver is now approximately 90 minutes with no plane change in Port Hardy & typically no delays. However, our flights leave much earlier now so if you are flying into Vancouver you need to do so the night before your trip to ensure that you don’t miss our chartered flight.
There is very limited parking at the Seair Seaplane Terminal so if you are driving to Vancouver plan to park at your hotel or nearby Park ’N Fly.
