This means one can fly from downtown Vancouver to Snug Cove, departing at 6 p.m., for $59 or fly from Snug Cove to Vancouver leaving at 6:30 p.m. for $39. Providing the seats are available.

Bowen is the currently the tail end of Harbour Air’s Taste of the West Coast service (picking up people who’ve had a tour of Howe Sound and a meal at Doc Morgan’s Pub) and the start of its Fly ‘n’ Dine service (dropping off passengers for a meal on the island).

Harbour Air’s marketing manager Samantha Kent said that the company often has a few additional seats available on those tours, and it’s those seats the company is opening up to non-tour goers.

“Available seats will be made open for bookings online or through our reservations centre at 8 a.m. for flights that same day,” she said. 

The number of passengers per flight (and the number of seats made available for a commute) varies depending on demand and if they use the six-passenger Beaver aircraft or 14-passenger Single Otter.

The service runs until September.
