Vancouver 2

Having missed the opportunity to fly in a float plane with Pete around Kodiak Island, Trish and I finally got our chance in Vancouver and took an extended flight around Howe Sound, The Lions peaks, the harbour and city area. Last to arrive on the dock to board the plane there were only two seats left, Trish took one and this was mine.

It was a great trip in perfect flying weather, flying close to the peaks above the city, seeing the huge fiords and channels that we had been sailing around only a few days earlier.

These float planes are not only a big tourist attraction but all along the coast of Alaska and British Columbia are a key part of the transportation system that links many remote communities.
