Eagles, seals, sea lions, orca, salmon, and humpback whales all call the Howe Sound fjord their home
Between 1904 to 1974 Britannia Mine was one of the largest copper mines in the world. The township was home to over 60,000 people. As the mine grew, toxic acid rock drainage polluted the Howe Sound decimating marine wildlife. In 1998 a rehabilitation plan was put in place. Thanks to a dedicated Squamish community and a colossal clean up effort previously lost marine wildlife has started to return to the fjord.
Howe Sound is a deep water fjord fed by the Squamish River that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It lays within the traditional territory of the Coast Salish First Nations and is now home to thousands of marine species including orca, humpback whales, and sea lions so keep your eyes peeled. A Fjord is an ancient river valley that was widened and deepened by glacial ice over millennia, making it a very exciting landscape to fly through in a small seaplane.
Flying in our planes is just like driving in a car, with ventilation and heating controls. Simply dress for the season.
