Floatplane:

We take care of all floatplane transportation for our guests
between Queen Charlotte Village and Rose Harbour.

Also available between RH/Prince Rupert or RH/Port Hardy but it is rather expensive...

How our floatplane prices are set up:
Our prices are designed to entice you to fly on certain days to minimize the number of floatplane we need to charter. We will offer you a fix price for your transportation. So no surpises on how much you will actually pay at the end of your stay.
Some floatplanes, we make a profit, some floatplanes we moose money. Our goal is to break even by the end of the season.

Floatplane transportation prices varies depending on the date of your flight, the size of your group and other factors. We will tell you your cost when we have an idea of the dates you wish to visit us.

 

When we charter floatplanes and organize different groups, we must take in consideration the size of the floatplanes and the number of passengers. We reserve the right to offer certain dates and not others.

A few basic rules apply for best rates:

  • The more flexibility you have for your dates, the better.
  • Group Size matters a lot for best prices (4-5)(8-10)!!!
  • Departure Time may change!
    We have no control of possible unforeseen rescheduling by the floatplane airlines
    .

Floatplanes have a set amount of weight they can legally carry, passengers and cargo combined. Beaver floatplanes can carry up to 6 people. With that number of passengers, you can only bring a very small amount of luggage! Don't bring the kitchen sink! Bring all your stuff in medium size bags the size of a large day pack or duffle bag on the floatplane.  This will increase the load volume carrying capacity of the floatplane.  Large suitcases are not recommended!

The floatplane airline has a small storage room for things you don't need to take with you while in Rose Harbour.

Because of the unpredictable weather conditions on Haida Gwaii:
We highly recommend you to arrive on Haida Gwaii the day before you are scheduled to arrive in Rose Harbour.  We also recommend you leave Haida Gwaii 24 hours after your scheduled time to leave Rose harbour.  Jet planes, floatplanes and ferries sometime get delayed in the summer too.  In the winter, it happens a lot!
Floatplanes do get rescheduled 1 or 2 times during the season due to weather conditions.  Flight will be rescheduled by the airline according to their schedule and as soon as the weather allows.

If you get stuck because the floatplane cannot fly due to weather..
  • If you get stuck in Rose Harbour, you may need to rebook your transportation from Haida Gwaii to back home.  We can do it for you from Rose Harbour. It will probably involve re-booking fees from the airline carrier.
     
  • If you miss your floatplane from Queen Charlotte to Rose Harbour (DON'T DO THAT!!!):
  1. You will lose your deposit for our chartered floatplane flight you missed.
  2. We will have to charter another floatplane and you probably will have to pay for the full cost of it.
  3. This situation can cost you a lot of money.. Don't miss the floatplane!!!

Listed prices DO NOT include 5% Goods and Service Tax (GST).

Floatplane prices on the following list are to give you a general idea of the costs involved. Many factors like time of the year, existing floatplane schedule and the size of your group will affect the price. Please contact us for a price quote and we will give you an exact price when we know all the details and needs for your holiday with us.

We charter the floatplanes for our guests transport and will organize the reservation and chartering of the floatplanes.  The floatplane airline offers 1 Beaver floatplanes based in Queen Charlotte village.  It can carry up to 6 people depending on weight and amount of gear you have. 6 people means just a large daypack each...

We charter the floatplanes for our guests transport and will organize the reservation and chartering of the floatplanes. 

 

Guided Boat Excursions and Transportation

Rigid hull inflatable boat guided excursions: info

  • All excursions are weather permitting!!!

  • Werequire guests to do the boat tours together to lower boat charter costs per person, and make the boat available to all.

  • Small children (8 or less) count as 1/2 passengers for boat costs

  • Prices are based on a base price for 1 or 2 passengers and an additional cost for extra passengers.

Ninstints (ancient totem poles):5-6 hours  Info
Guided tour of abandoned Haida village site (UNESCO World Heritage site).  It has the largest number of ancient totem poles left on the Pacific coast in one location.
Includes wildlife sightseeing (seals and sea lions and many sea birds) on the west side of the island weather permitting.
Starts at $450.00 for 1 or 2 passengers.

 

Hotspring Island: Hotsprings are not working right now to a major earthquake a few years ago.

8-9 hours + Very dependant on sea conditions. Info
Includes sightseeing at Burnaby Narrows with tides permitting.

Boat time: About 4-5 hours from Rose Harbour return.
Starts at $800.00 for 1 or 2 passengers.

We also sometimes can meet the floatplane at Hotspring Island WEATHER PERMITTING. It cost more then just a floatplane transport but you get to see a different area by boat. It is a much better deal considering how much more you get to see.

 

 

 

Cape St-James Area:  7-8+ hours Patrick's favorite location! Very dependant on sea conditions info
Hardly anyone ever goes there but us. It's wild, it's exposed, it's beautiful.  About 3 hours from Rose Harbour return. We can't guarantee we will make it to the Kerouard Islands unless the sea conditions are relatively calm. We stop to at least one beach along the way. We can potentially, if possible, have a BBQ on the beach for dinner. We need to pick the perfect day to go there... 
Starts at $600.00 for 1 or 2 passengers.

 

 

Drop-off locations:  Where do you need to go?  Let us know! info
We know many great beaches, bird colonies and sea lion rookeries to explore. Great way to get lost and pretend to be Robinson Crusoe, Tarzan or Jane.

Popular locations:

Bowles Point, Not too far, 2 beaches to check out.

Rose Inlet:  near from Rose Harbour.  Good chances to see a bear or 2. Fairly Easy walking along a creek where you can see lots of very large spruce trees.

Gordon Islands:  Awesome place to spend the day. Lots of places and crevices to explore. 

 

 

Boat / Floatplane transportation combined package:
Want to see Hotspring Island?  Want to see the whole length of Gwaii Haanas and all the Haida watchmen locations?
We offer optional transportation package including combined boat and floatplane transportation.
These transportation options are very much dependant on floatplane schedule AND WEATHER CONDITIONS.  Our meeting location is usually Hotspring Island.
