For the Whistler Fly & Drive Tour, you have the opportunity of either taking the bus to Whistler and flying back, or flying to Whistler and returning to Vancouver by bus.
If you choose the drive up first, the tour begins with an 8:30 AM pick up from your Vancouver hotel in a comfortable 24 passenger bus.
The trip begins by crossing the Lions Gate Bridge and heading through West Vancouver, Horseshoe Bay, Lions Bay, Porto Cove, and Britannia Beach to Squamish. The beautiful Sea to Sky Highway is the road to Whistler, where the 2010 Olympics were held. You’ll get to visit Shannon Falls, the 3rd highest waterfall in BC.
You may want to try zip lines, hiking, walking, or shopping. You might also want to sit in the patio of one of Whistler’s great restaurants, have a great lunch and watch the world walk by. The Peak 2 Peak gondola is on most visitor’s minds when they look up the mountain.
On your return trip, the float plane will take off from Green Lake at 7:00 PM and land at Vancouver’s inner harbour 45 minutes later. This is truly a wonderful experience and very fun!
If you choose to take the float plane first, your flight departs at 9:00 AM, and after a beautiful scenic flight, you’ll land on Green Lake at 9:45 AM. A free shuttle will drop you off in Whistler Village where you’ll have free time to explore before being picked up between 3:45 and 4:00 PM for your bus ride back to Vancouver. The bus driver/guide will make your trip interesting and informative.
