Seasonal service, May to September, for Desolation Sound from either Kenmore Air Harbor or Lake Union. Our fleet includes six-seat de Havilland Beavers and eight-seat Otters. Looking for something more personal? The Cessna 180 is a two to three passenger floatplane that is a most economical charter option. Sorry, no complimentary baggage storage on-site.
Kenmore Air flies to five different anchorage points in Desolation Sound, which makes it an ideal connection and pick-up point. There are some lodging options in the area such as the April Point Resort and Spa on Quadra Island or the Cabana Desolation Eco Resort on Kinghorn Island, Nanook Lodge, or Dent Island. Other spots — like Mink Island — are privately owned, but have public anchorage.
The beauty of Desolation Sound is all that you don’t have to go anywhere. It’s beautiful anywhere you are with a selection of coves and inlets you’ll be free to explore at your own pace alongside the bald eagles, orca whales, porpoise and sea lions found in the area. Cruising, kayaking, fishing? It’s all here.
