Summer – Float Plane

Our de Havilland Beaver aircraft is based at Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa in the summer months and is available to fly passengers between a variety of destinations in British Columbia.

The airplane can carry approximately 1100 lbs (not including the pilot) of gear and passengers into most lakes. The airplane can pick up guests or gear from Spruce or Lorna Lake with a maximum weight limit of 800 lbs.  Picking up guests or gear from Warner Lake is not possible due to the location & winds on this lake.

The plane comfortably seats 6 passengers without gear or 4 -5 with packs/gear. If traveling with bikes, 4 people with bikes is a comfortable load; 5 people with bikes can fit into one load as long as there are NO DOUBLE CROWN FORKS and your groups combined (bikes, people and packs) weight stays under 1100 lbs. You will also need to remove the wheels from your bike please come with the knowledge and tools to do so.

Trips into Warner Lake depart first thing in the morning between 7:30am and 9:00am. All passengers should be at the floatplane dock and PREPARED TO DEPART 15 minutes prior to the departure time booked.

If wind or weather make landing impractical at Warner Lake or Lorna Lake, Spruce Lake can be used as an alternate.

For safety reasons, Bear Spray is not allowed inside the cabin of the aircraft.  If traveling with Bear Spray please let the pilot know and remove from your luggage.  If you are leaving gear for the pilot to fly please leave your Bear Spray out of your luggage.

Please note that charter flight booking rates within the park have changed.
