Get a birds-eye view of British Columbia's wilderness by flying overhead in a seaplane, eventually landing in an inlet by a glacial waterfall.
It's a short transfer from the pier to the Seal Cove Seaplane Base where your seaplane stands ready to whisk you away on an unforgettable and incredibly scenic flight. As your plane climbs into the sky, you will have an excellent view from your window seat. There is so much to see, all of it compliments of Mother Nature.
As you soar over lush rainforests, deep valleys, rugged mountain fjords and spectacular glaciers, you will see cascading waterfalls, winding rivers and remote freshwater lakes. Your flight will also take you over the unspoiled Khutzeymateen Valley, a wilderness area that boasts one of the largest concentrations of grizzly bears in the world. It's quite a sight to see one of these massive bears feeding on the lush vegetation or lumbering across a hillside. Of course, there are many other species of wildlife that live in this area as well, including mountain goats, bald eagles and even whales, who migrate here to feed in the nutrient-rich water each summer.
With all of the awe-inspiring wonders you will experience, one still stands out. Well into the flight, your seaplane will touch down in a magnificent inlet and float alongside a glacial waterfall. Looking out the window, you are treated to the spectacular sight of the water as it plunges into the rocky mountain fjord. It's simply unforgettable. Once you have had ample opportunity to take in this incredible display of Mother Nature at her best, your seaplane will take off and return to the airport.
Upon touchdown at the Seal Cove Seaplane Base, your transportation awaits to transfer you back to the ship.
