The Canada/US border crossing time is hard to estimate, so we build in an extra pad just to be safe. After we park our car, we usually have enough time to walk over to the nearby Floatplane Base. The planes are fun to watch, and the Flying Beaver Restaurant has great food.
|Harbour Air taking off from the river.|
Several airlines serve passengers at the private and public portions of the YVR Floatplane Facility. They include:
Nearby Seair uses the ramp on the shore of the Fraser River to launch and recover their planes using a motorized tug.
|Seair taking a floatplane from the river across the road to parking.|
All traffic is stopped to allow the tug and plane to cross the road to their parking area on airport property. If you love watching planes, this is the place to go. -- Margy
