You just can't watch them

Having flown into Vancouver from Auckland at 2pm on the 3rd of July, having checked into my overnight accommodation I not only went plane spotting at the Harbour Air seaplane base, I also had to try them. 

There were seats available to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island so it was off for the 20 minute flight...
Here is flight H3 679 to Nanaimo... I was sitting in the back row due to being busy photographing a Beaver taxi by but it turned out to be a great spot

Harbour Air's base at Vancouver Airport, Seair further down the Fraser River... Harbour Air have a Beaver and three Turbo Otters moored

Harbour Air operates VFR, 500 feet to Vancouver Island, 300 feet back 

Looking back to Vancouver

Surprisingly not interested in the Turbo Otter... crabbing - meanwhile seals are watching for the crabs too
