In 2009 I went on an extensive trip for ANWB REIZEN Magazine to discover Vancouver Island. One of the treats, besides insanely good weather, was a roundflight by Tofino Air. As most of my friends know I’m totally crazy about flying (even though I get more than my fair share of it) but this one really was one of the best ever. Taking off in a floatplane from Tofino and cruise over the wilderness below is a sight to behold. I can only recommend everybody to do this just once, it’s worth every penny!
