We have a Seaplane Spotter

The only seaplane in the business.

We have the only seaplane in the industry. There are times that we use this plane to help find whales. When the plane is in service our captain and our pilot are in constant communication with each other.

There are times that the plane will be up searching outer areas and we will never see it. However, if it is in the vicinity and conditions allow, it might make a fly-by or land along side the boat. If this is going to happen our Captain or Naturalist will tell you ahead of time, so you can have your camera ready. This will be a great photo opportunity because the plane is decorated in Northwest native art.
