INCREDIBLE! Such an amazing day! Highlights where the flight over Horizontal Falls and checking out the mine.

Pilot was very informative and coordinated very well with air traffic to keep us at a low altitude for the best views. We got to fly over and circle around horizontal falls so everyone got a good look. The flight back included a surprise of whales which we got to circle around for a little bit too. Absolutely amazing!
