Diving off the floatplane at Phantom Lake near Vancouver, Whistler and Squamish

A FOMO Inducing Floatplane Adventure (That Won’t Break The Bank)

In Squamish Things To Do by Vicky Farrand

Phantom Lake is remote wilderness hideaway that can only be accessed 4 months of the year (maybe 5 with good weather).

This emerald green paradise is nestled among old-growth rainforest, and the only way in or out of the is by floatplane. Sitting at over 3000ft above sea level the only water flow into the lake is from rainfall, snow melt, and glacial melt. Water escapes via a beautiful double waterfall (Phantom Falls) east end of the lake.When you see fly past it you’ll feel like you’re in a movie, watch this video and you’ll see what we mean.

How long does it take to Phantom Lake by floatplane & how much does it cost?

It only takes about 20 minuets to fly to Phantom Lake from Squamish airport, but despite it’s proximity to Vancouver, Squamish, and Whistler the lake’s location makes it inaccessible to 99.9% of people who travel in the Sea To Sky region. This is just one of the reasons it’s loved by people who want to wander off the beaten path.

Our Phantom Lake floatplane trip is $199 per person and our planes seat up to 4 people (including the pilot).
