Tofino Air Now Flying From Downtown Vancouver

No question the drive to Pacific Sands is a must-do on the spectacular scale, but when you just want to get here, flying is a brilliant way to be at the resort faster than you can say “let’s hit the beach”. 

There are scheduled and chartered flights to Tofino from both Vancouver and Seattle with a variety of airlines, but for the ultimate in convenience out of downtown Vancouver, Tofino Air now operates out of the new Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre

This world-class seaplane terminal opened this spring at the new Vancouver Convention Centre.  Easy to get by public transit, taxi or car complete with 500 parking stalls, it provides a new level of options for door to door travel to Tofino. 

Just think…no ferries, no traffic, no worries.  And enjoy the view because in just one hour, you’re here. 

Tofino Air is now offering the following summer schedule which may change and adapt as travellers catch on to how floatplanes are an outstanding way to save valuable leisure time:

  • Vancouver Harbour to Tofino        Departs 11am Tues, Thurs, Sat & Sun
  • Tofino to Vancouver Harbour        Departs 1:00pm Tues, Thurs, Sat & Sun

Plus, we’ve expanded our complimentary airport shuttle service to include Tofino harbour so be sure to book a pick-up when reserving your Tofino accommodation at Pacific Sands.
