From a guides perspective this is a good view of a seaplane at the dock of Grizzly Bear Lodge. The first reason would be that we are on the water and not carrying luggage or boxes of food up to the lodge. The second is that if we were on the dock carrying luggage it is a high tide. The float is about the same level as the shore and this makes the trips allot easier. The summer tides can be four or five meters (yards) in height and this makes for a steep ramp up to land level. The flight to the lodge from Campbell River takes about forty-five minutes and flies over some great coastal scenery so be sure to have your camera at hand and not stowed in your suitcase.
