Experience flying in the mountains combined with the thrill of takeoff and landing in a seaplane

Join us in your own slice of paradise at Phantom Lake under the glaciers of Mt Jimmy Jimmy

Take a dip in calm waters and relax at the beach, soak up the sun, or take a short walk for incredible photographs

Phantom Lake near Squamish is a dazzling, emerald green hanging lake. At one end water feeds into the lake from the nearby glaciers of Mt Jimmy Jimmy and Tzoonie Mountain, while at the other it escapes via a towering cascading waterfall. On the way there (and back) you’ll fly shoulder-to-shoulder with million year-old peaks, over ancient valleys, and through a landscape worthy of a National Geographic documentary.

After flying through the coast mountains you’ll land on the rich turquoise waters of Phantom Lake. Your pilot will taxi you to the shore where you can enjoy taking photos, swimming, or just relaxing in solitude. Bring your own picnic for a little tasty treat or a memorable alpine lunch. This tour is one of the most amazing things to do in Squamish in summer.

What do pilots sound like?

Our pilots are passionate about British Columbia, Squamish, Whistler, Vancouver and the Sea To Sky Corridor. They love sharing what they know about the region’s legendary geology and history so we outfitted every seat with a two-way headset and microphone. Think of us like your best friend taking you on a road trip to all their favourite places. Listen to your pilot tell stories as you fly, ask questions about features and landmarks, or simply sit back and enjoy the view.

All flights seat up to four people (three guests and one pilot). 

In response to COVID-19 we will be making all of our tours private at no additional cost. You will only ever be experiencing your flight with people from your own group. Simply follow the booking prompt to purchase either 2 or 3 seats and the aircraft will be completely yours.

From the Flight

Phantom Lake

Suspended above a waterfall at 4000ft, Phantom Lake is an almost unbelievable sight. A hanging sub-alpine lake overlooked by the impressive Mt Tzooniem, Mt Jimmy Jimmy and glaciers. This sheltered wild haven has a soft sandy beach at the north end and can only be accessed by seaplane.

Mt Jimmy Jimmy

Mt Jimmy Jimmy is a vast glaciated mountain at the north end of Phantom Lake near Squamish, ask your pilot to point it out on the flight in. Named for Chief Jimmy Jimmy (native name Swahsh), a leader of the Squamish Nation who had traplines in the foothills of the mountain. The name was officially adopted in 1957.
