Whistler Tour

SEAPLANE ADVENTURE

Let us help you with an escape from the city up the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler Village. After the 2010 Winter Olympics, Whistler became known as the year-round resort it is today and not just the ski resort it once was. As we make up way along the scenic highway, guests can enjoy stops at Shannon Falls, the Information Centre in Squamish and, of course, Whistler Village. Spend some time at the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Museum and return to downtown Vancouver with a scenic flight taking you over the Howe Sound and coastal mountains.

  • 1. What Should I Wear?
    It is always best to dress in layers for the day no matter the season. In the summer, comfortable walking shoes with pants or shorts and a light jacket should be enough for the day. Travelling here in winter conditions requires snow boots, warm jackets, gloves, mittens. If needed, we can store any extra gear on the bus.
  • 2. Is This Tour Accessible?
    Guests can expect a minimal to moderate to a high level of walking, depending on the activities selected. Most of Whistler Village is paved but, many add-on activities include trails not paved. The walk to the Shannon Falls observation platform is five to ten-minute in length along an unpaved, inclined path.
  • 3. Is This Pre-Cruise Tour?
    Unfortunately, our Whistler & Shannon Falls Tour is not compatible with cruise ship arrivals or departures.
  • 4. Can I Book Activities Myself?
    You can book activities yourself; however, all excursions must be booked within 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm to ensure you can meet your guide at the specified meeting time. Please let our Guest Services Team or your Tour Guide know if this is your plan.
