Rick Mercer has his head in the clouds.

The Canadian comedian and his "Rick Mercer Report" crew travelled to B.C. to visit Richmond-based Harbour Air, and co-pilot a float plane to Phantom Lake in Tantalus Provincial Park.

In the video, Mercer spends time as a dock boy. While washing the planes, he also tries to tie ropes like the pros. Later, he climbs aboard and acts as a first officer for the plane, even trying his hand at steering.

And, just like everyone else who spends time in this glorious province of ours, Mercer was floored by the expansive mountain views that lay below him.

"This is an astounding treat," he exclaims. "Not that the flight between Toronto and Ottawa is not awesome, but this is something else."
