Our recent trip to Vancouver Island we had the pleasure of taking our very first ever Helijet ride.
We have only been to Vancouver Island by ferry so this was such a treat! When we arrived in Downtown Vancouver at Helijet, we had the pleasure of waiting in a comfy lounge with free wifi, an abundance of snacks, and drinks. The girls loved this! They enjoyed some fruit salad, and cookies, while my husband and I sipped on some coffee & tea. It was so nice.
When we loaded onto the Helijet, my daughter and I sat right behind the pilot. My youngest daughter was so excited about this. She kept looking out the window and watching the propellers warm up for our ride.
As soon as we took off the smile on her face was huge. She tapped me on the arm as we went through some clouds and the expression on her face was priceless! The views were really breathtaking.
Within 18 minutes we arrived in Nanaimo. We could not believe how fast it felt. I don’t think the kids are ever going to want to travel by ferry again to the island (lol).
When we arrived in Nanaimo, we had a rental car waiting for us right at Helijet. The entire experience from start to finish was so great and because it was so quick we had more time to enjoy our mini-vacation.
We can now say we’ve been on a helicopter to Vancouver Island! This was such a memorable experience and I highly recommend this mode of transportation for your next getaway to the Island.
