Change your perspective of Squamish forever
Take a private, guided 15-minute flight of Squamish, the Howe Sound, Stawamus Chief and the Coast Mountains for you and two friends
The Squamish valley is the result of 250,000,000 year old mountains and volcanism, clashing with prehistoric glaciers
Once you see beyond the boundary of the Sea To Sky Highway you’ll never look at Squamish the same way
This flight is just for you, Sea To Sky Locals. Come out to experience an introduction to the beauty of the Coast Mountains from the air before the busy summer
A fjord is an ancient river valley that was widened, straightened and deepened by glacial ice over the millennia. Flowing 42km toward the Pacific Ocean from the mouth of the Squamish River, the Howe Sound is home to whales, seals, sea lions and thousands of marine species. It’s dotted with islands and sits in the traditional territory of the Squamish Nation. It is estimated that annually the Howe Sound watershed provides $800 million to $4.7 billion in ecosystem services contributing to breathable air, drinkable water and protection from natural disasters.
The southern coast mountains and the north cascades contain some of the most perplexing geology in British Columbia. Instead of a few big terranes they are made up of a structural stack of little ones created in the Jurassic and the mid-Cretaceous period. A tectonic plate charging south (instead of north) dragged with it island arcs not related to the North American continent. Eventually the plate and the islands collided with what is now the coast of British Columbia creating the base for the Coast Mountains.
As of October 1st Transport Canada has removed the requirement for both health checks prior to flight and wearing masks. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask you are free to do so, but it is no longer mandatory. Our aircraft and office areas will continue to be sanitized after each flight, and all staff will be respecting physical distancing.
