I was more than a little nervous about flying up to Hot Spring Cove during my recent trip to Tofino... but the staff (Malcolm, the pilot, and Misty, on the ground) were both so helpful, patient and friendly, that my fears were soon laid to rest. Once up in the air, I didn't want to come down! The trip back... More

Okay. I wanted to be on one of those planes since I watched “Beachcombers” as a kid, so they couldn’t do much wrong with me, really. Our pilot was Malcolm, a delightful person to talk to and a responsible and capable pilot who knows the area well. The plane was spotless and appeared very well serviced. There is a high... More

The glaciers were socked in the day we flew. We opted for the 1.5 hour adventure tour and it was wonderful. We flew into Pretty Lady Lake and landed at their camp spot. Then flew over whales on the way back. Great trip made even better by staff.

We took this flight back to Tofino from the Hot Springs Tour. To see the coast from a plane is breathtaking. Our pilot was very safe and informative. He circled a pod of grey whales for us to see. He also circled our hotel, The Wickannish. Everything looks different from a plane. Well worth the experience. The total cost of... More

We took a sunset flight with these guys and they were great. The aircraft was clean and well presented, Sean the pilot was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and it's history in the way only a local can be and the lady in the office was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed a 45 minute Helicopter tour of the Tofino mountain areas, rivers, waterfalls, close to glaciers, but truly enjoying the expansive and awesome rugged coastline of Tofino and the 1000 small island outcroppings. Our wonderful pilot was Josh......he was born and raised here so he knows the area and has a great live for sharing the magically place. He... More
