Ganges Harbor Airport (YGG) is a very small regional airport serving Saltspring Island in British Columbia. It offers regular seaplane flights between the town of Ganges on the island and the mainland in Vancouver through Harbour Air and SeaAir airlines.

Flight prices stay consistent throughout the year, but you may find a better deal if you avoid travelling during major holidays like Christmas or Easter, and book your flights at least 3 months in advance.

Getting to Ganges Harbor Airport

YGG is located in the town of Ganges on Saltspring Island. To check in for your flight, head to the Salt Spring Air office at Grace Point Square at 3102-115 Fulford Ganges Rd (just below the Coast Guard station), then walk down to the dock to board your plane. Unfortunately, there is no long-term parking available so your best bet is to take a cab or walk to the airport, which is only 1km from the centre of town.

If you are taking a cab to the terminal, ask your driver to take you to "Grace Point Square" or the "Saltspring Air Office". 

Departing from Ganges Harbor Airport

After arriving at the Saltspring Air Office, speak to the agent at the desk to confirm your ticket and check in. YGG is not a traditional airport, and only offers short flights on seaplanes. As a result, you won't find the usual airport amenities. The Air Office offers complimentary organic Saltspring coffee that you can take with you on your flight. The office is just a short walk from the dock, and the agent will let you know when your plane is ready to board.

We recommend checking in at least 60 minutes before your flight in case there are any delays.
