Fly-In Package from Seattle – Northwest Seaplanes
Hakai Lodge provides the ultimate wilderness fishing experience of a lifetime. We are located in the largest marine park in Canada, approximately 70 miles from the nearest town. This is one of the most beautiful and inaccessible places in the northern hemisphere.
Hakai Pass can only be reached by private boat or by seaplane, making Hakai Lodge one of the true “Canadian fly in fishing lodges”. It is this very inaccessibility which keeps the fishing waters around Hakai from becoming crowded with the swarms of people often found in other fishing locations.
Most of our guests choose seaplane flights from Seattle to reach Hakai. This can be the most scenic and exciting way to begin your fishing adventure at the Lodge. We have partnered with Northwest Seaplanes as our primary transportation provider since 1988. Flights leave from Renton, WA (Seattle Area). Flights are aboard their DeHavilland Beaver seaplanes or their ten passenger Dehavilland Otter.
