Kenmore Air, the Pacific Northwest’s leading provider of seaplane flight services, is thrilled to announce the launch of new direct seaplane flights between Friday Harbor Marina and Victoria’s Inner Harbour, starting May 16.

This new route signifies an important expansion of Kenmore Air’s seaplane flight network, providing travelers with a convenient and scenic connection between two iconic destinations. The seaplane flights will operate daily through Nov. 1 of this year, offering a quick and enjoyable 30-minute journey.

Passengers on these flights will experience the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific Northwest from a unique vantage point. Friday Harbor Marina, with its picturesque idyllic island surroundings, and Victoria’s Inner Harbour, known for its unique blend of historic charm and modern vibrancy, are now seamlessly connected through Kenmore Air’s reliable and efficient seaplane services.

Kenmore Air’s seaplane flights will depart Friday Harbor Marina at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and depart Victoria’s Inner Harbour at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Flights out of Victoria start at $129 per person USD one-way.

In January 2024, Kenmore Air announced an expansion of their partnership with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, with planned scheduled seaplane flight service between Tacoma and San Juan Island, also starting on May 16. The addition of the Victoria seaplane service leg provides a wide array of opportunities for easy international travel for both U.S. and Canadian travelers looking to visit the San Juan Islands and the south Puget Sound region.
