Prince Rupert Flightseeing
Our North Coast flightseeing excursions feature our favourite mountain and landscapes, and are designed to take advantage of varied flying conditions. On our beachcomber special you'll explore the rugged coastline, remote island beaches and watch for sea mammals, such as whales, dolphins and sea lions. Our Peninsula tour features the remarkable landscape of the Coast Range Mountains covered in rich rainforest vegetation, while our fjord tour takes in the drama of inland glaciers and rugged slopes above treeline.
Our office and hangar are located at Seal Cove Seaplane Base, at the northwest corner of Prince Rupert. We have a spacious parking lot where you can leave your vehicle, or you can reach us by taxi or city bus. Taxi service to and from the base is readily available and reasonably priced. Skeena Taxi offers a flat fare from the cruise ship dock to Seal Cove that is (at the time of this writing) $8.50/4-person vehicle and you can telephone 250-624-2185 for pick-up. The city operated Transit Bus #51 runs on a scheduled circuit, and at the time of this writing, the fare is $1.25/adult.
We review our proposed flight plan with each guest party before we depart, describing our route and tour highlights. Our planes are equipped with headsets and intercom systems so that you can communicate with your pilot throughout the tour and we'll give you a map to follow the flight. We are happy to adjust our route to suit your pleasure, and it goes without saying that weather considerations and safety come first.
We welcome your inquiry and encourage you to drop in and see us. To avoid disappointment we urge you to book in advance.
