A Great Ride in

Great Hands

Your Adventure Starts With Us. And this is Us.

Isle Royale Seaplanes operates the Cessna 206 amphibious seaplane and de Havilland Beaver, long known as one of the most reliable workhorses of general aviation. The airplane can maneuver in and out of tight strips or stretches of water with ease and safety, manage a large load without problem, and features four passenger seats for ample capacity. With a cruise speed of 125 mph, it gets you to your adventure typically in about an hour, while providing an exciting trip in the process. Alongside the Cessna 206 we have the iconic de Havilland Beaver, a classic bush plane, and overall workhorse. Our full-time mechanic regularly maintains the planes to ensure that they are always in ideal flight condition. Then, we put you in the hands of experience; our owner and pilot has over 40 years of experience and over 29,000 hours of flight time. He has spent 25 years as an airline captain and has 20 years’ experience flying floatplanes. Our Chief Pilot has over 13 years of experience, and over 6,000 hours of flight time. Complimented with our third in command with just as many astonishing accomplishments. Our operation has a dedicated reservationist, so your needs are always met with ease. 


So sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey.
