Gulf Island Seaplanes

Gulf Island Seaplanes is an Indigenous Owned and family run seaplane airline that provides scheduled and chartered flights across the Salish Sea and throughout the Southwest Coast of British Columbia. Specializing in connecting coastal communities and Metro Vancouver, we are proud to be the only seaplane company offering scheduled service to our new seaplane dock on Hornby.

With an emphasis on customer service, we are committed to all of our passengers and want their experience from the first step of booking their trip to when they disembark at their final destination to be a personable, memorable and enjoyable experience. We make a point to get to know our customers, whether it is their first time flying with us or on a continued basis. We credit our excellent safety record to our pilots that have decades of floatplane experience in the surrounding area and delight in flying. Our team, each and everyone of us, loves what we do and we are so exited to have you aboard and share that with you.
