WHAT TO PACK
We encourage you to downlaod or print our "helpful hints" checklist to keep your packing on track.
TRAVELLING WITH MINORS
For dependants under the age of 18, accompanied by only 1 parent/legal guardian (or neither parent/guardian), we strongly recommend completing a constent form before crossing the border.
While it is not mandatory, we would rather our guests be prepared in case you are greeted by an overly inquisative border agent. You can download a template: minor consent form
LOADS & LIMITS
Floatplane load limit is 40 pounds per person - this includes your personal gear, fishing gear, sleeping bag and life preserver/jacket. In ADDITION to this 40lb limit, each person can bring (1) case of beverage of your choice.
For every 2 people, you can add (1) cooler without wheels (our pilots will thank you).
Please keep these weight limits in mind since any gear beyond this weight limit will be left behinf or you may have to pay for an extra flight.
