Bypass ferry line-ups, fast food and gas stations by taking a non-stop short-cut from Vancouver to Tofino-Long Beach Airport (YAZ) with Pacific Coastal Airlines, or float into Tofino Harbour with Harbour Air.
Enjoy a bird’s-eye perspective soaring over the Georgia Straight, Port Alberni inlet and Vancouver Island mountain peaks. As Tofino’s rugged coastline and the majestic beauty of Clayoquot Sound starts to emerge in the distance, you’ll be happy you chose a window seat.
Pacific Coastal Airlines
Wheels up from Vancouver Airport’s South Terminal for a 45-minute flight to Tofino in the comfort of Pacific Coastal’s 19-passenger Beech 1900 aircraft. The daily flight schedule runs year-round, complete with shuttle service to/from the airport directly to Pacific Sands and other Tofino resorts.
Since 1982, Harbour Air has been connecting west coast communities with its growing fleet of seaplanes. It’s now one of the largest all-seaplane airlines in the world. Daily one-hour flights between Vancouver Harbour and Tofino run thru mid-October, then back in full swing in April—the perfect transport from downtown Vancouver chaos to Tofino tranquility.
