Celebrate Canada’s Birthday by taking a Beaver
ride!!!  This is a great opportunity
being offered this Canada Day to simply go for a quick
ride onboard one of our iconic de Havilland Canada
DHC-2 "Beaver" floatplanes. Dock to dock your ride will be about 25 minutes but this will give
you plenty of time to enjoy the features of our “Beavers” such as their comfortable interiors,
enlarged windows for easy viewing and aviation headsets for all guests. Our pilots have a tight bond with the aircraft they fly and will be
more than happy to enhance your onboard experience by answering any questions
you or your guests may have throughout your ride.

The Beaver floatplane provides passengers and onlookers a sense of
nostalgia for a point in time when Northern Canada
was first being opened up and discovered by aircraft. The Beaver was designed
for flight in rugged and remote areas.  It's
short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities make it ideal for areas normally
only accessible by canoe or by foot. Designed and built in Canada to
operate on floats, skis, and wheels it is powered by a reliable 450hp radial
(round) engine that produces a very distinctive rumble.

The first production Beaver was delivered to the Ontario Department
of Lands and Forests, a design partner, in April 1948. Production ceased in
1967, after approximately 1,700 Beavers had been built.  Hundreds of Beavers are still flying today.
It's rugged dependability and exceptional performance have made it a favourite
with bush pilots, passengers and operators for almost 70 years.  The Beaver is considered by many to be the
best bushplane ever built. The demand for this ‘half-ton truck of the sky' is
still as strong as ever. The Beaver was named one of the top ten Canadian
engineering achievements of the 20th century. 
It has become iconic to plane spotters and has been commemorated on
currency and postage, and received recognition in artwork, photography and in
film.
