Flying Beaver Restaurant at Vancouver Airport's South Terminal

Entrance to Harbour Air's
Last week I wrote about walking from Vancouver International Airport's South Terminal across to the Floatplane Base.

Even if you are at the YVR main terminal and have some time to spare, head over to the South Terminal. Park in the free day use lot and walk across the street. If you get hungry while you're there, head into the Harbour Air terminal and you will find the Flying Beaver Bar and Grill.

They have great food and drink, and a high flying view. The restaurant and check-in building for Harbour Air is on pilings over the edge of the Fraser River.

The Flying Beaver and Harbour Air riverside docks.

The Flying Beaver's covered patio area.
The Flying Beaver Bar and Grill is designed to take full advantage of the river view and airplane comings and goings.

They have daily specials, a varied menu, and thirst quenching drinks. Come for a meal or just good times with friends.

The indoor section includes a long bar and tables with excellent river views.

Sit at the bar and make some new friends.
You can watch passengers board and deplane at the dock below, and view nearby Seair launch and remove floatplanes using the river's ramp right next door.

You might even find us grabbing a bite on our way home to our float cabin on Powell Lake. -- Margy
