Got my family name wrong, but booking finally found. Seaplane journey smooth and fast. The tour agency lady gave wrong instruction on where to board the bus, but luckily we found it. Only 3 boarding time slots for bus to take us to Butchart Garden. Luckily, weather was good and we had enough time for taking photos, tea at the Dining Room and Harbourfront stroll.

On time departure... great first time experience in Turbo Otter. We had a great flight and the beautiful scenery was even more amazing from the air! The Gardens were lovely with their fall color, and the entire experience was so well organized and planned. Graham, who drove the bus to Buchart gardens, shared details about the area from his experience growing up on the island.

This trip gives an opportunity to see a little more of the area around Vancouver. It gets you into the air with some great views both at take-off and on the return trip but you also get out to Vancouver Island with the stop at Victoria itself as well as the short bus ride out to Butchart Gardens. You can easily spend a very pleasant 2 hours there following the guide route. It's a brilliant day.
