Vancouver & Klahoose Wilderness Lodge

Take a private chartered Beaver seaplane flight to the Klahoose Wilderness Resort, at the edge of the Great Bear Rainforest. Journeying by covered boat past spectacular waterfalls, disembark at the Toba Inlet dock and take a short bus ride to the viewing platforms tucked amid lush rainforest and glacierblue river. Led by trained bear guides, you’ll spend hours watching for the majestic mammals as they wander their natural habitat.

What to expect

Private Flightseeing Tour

Board a private seaplane to Chatterbox Falls in Princess Louisa Inlet, a magnificent granite-walled gorge that rises sharply from the water’s edge reaching heights over 2,100 metres. Warm sun melting the mountain snowpack generates some 60 waterfalls cascading into the gorge, including storybook-like Chatterbox Falls, which presides over the scene at the head of the Inlet. After snapping photos of the tumbling falls and exploring the area at your leisure, take the seaplane onward through the Sunshine Coast. The next destination is Gibsons Landing, a charming coastal village whose shops, art galleries, and restaurants line a bustling boardwalk. Dine on a hearty lunch of fresh seafood, or explore the village – keep an eye out for Molly’s Reach, which you may recognize as the backdrop of popular show The Beachcombers. You can also stroll along the marina, pop into a museum, or simply lounge on the grass and watch the boat traffic in Howe Sound. Afterward, hop aboard the floatplane for a scenic ride back to Vancouver.

Private Savouring Granville Island Culinary Crawl

As Vancouver’s premier artistic and cultural hub, located in an urban waterfront setting, Granville Island is a unique destination that attracts millions of visitors each year. On this tour, you’ll be escorted by your driver/guide to this world-renowned destination with its world class shops, galleries, restaurants, and the Public Market– a foodie’s paradise where every imaginable edible delectable can be found. You’ll also get the opportunity to enjoy an amazing selection of delicacies paired with wine from BC’s top wineries at a chic waterfront restaurant and some refreshing suds at Canada’s first craft brewery – Granville Island Brewery, or at a fantastic craft spirits distillery.
