Canadian Ramblings 3 Fraser River & Coal Harbour

Post by LondonEye » Sat Apr 21, 2018 5:11 pm

Continuing in the land of seaplanes.
As said in previous post - Vancouver South backs onto the Fraser River.
So, onto some different operators seen over the years. Harbour Air has gradually taken over some including Baxter and West Coast.

Leaving the main airport, onto Vancouver itself. Most folk have probably already seen pictures of the Seaplane Terminal.
Just to the West of the Cruise Liner Terminal, it is often referred to as Coal Harbour.
As you would expect, Harbour Air dominates.
There maybe a set landing line, but it seems to me that they just look for a gap between boats !

Just to the East of the Cruise Liner Terminal, there is a helicopter landing area.

Finally, you never know what you might see in the marina to the West.

Lovely set.

11yrs since I was there, The Harbour Air HQ at Fraser River is great place to relax on a summer's evening - nice bar and restaurant too.
