Greater Victoria Harbour Authority buys Hyack Air facilities in Inner Harbour

The purchase includes all floats, buildings and business operations at the Hyack terminal.

The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority is solidifying plans to restructure its assets in the Inner Harbour after it purchased seaplane terminal assets below the Victoria Regent Hotel.

Announced Thursday, the purchase includes all floats, buildings and business operations at the Hyack terminal. Hyack will continue to offer private seaplane charter flights for fishing and scenic air tours.

“The idea is to optimize the usage of these terminals,” said Rebecca Penz, GVHA manager of sustainability and quality management.

Optimizations could include consolidating marina areas and seaplane terminals.

Any plans will require consultation with the City of Victoria, Provincial Capital Commission and other key players.
