Unlike other Manitoba fly in fishing lodges we don’t require you to buy an airline ticket to a remote Canada destination like Thompson, Red Lake, Yellow knife, etc.
Getting to us comes down to two options:
Departure from Bissett Manitoba:
Our base rates include your chartered floatplane flight from Bissett Manitoba with Blue Water Aviation seaplane airbase utilizing Otters and Cessna 185s.
Bissett, Manitoba is a 3 hour drive from Winnipeg International. All of our floatplane flights load up at first light and fly arrive at the fishing lodge by 8 am weather permitting. We start you off with breakfast and you’ll get a full day of fishing on your first day.
Guests going home also get an early start because they will be back at the seaplane airbase by 10 am to start their travel home. Most guests flying out of Winnipeg International choose to book the 3 or 5 pm flights home.
Departure from Winnipeg Manitoba:
For those guests that want less driving than the 3 hours to Bissett, we offer our St. Andrews seaplane airbase departure.
St. Andrews is a 35 minute drive from Winnipeg International. We use Amik Aviation seaplane airbase who utilize Cessna Caravans on Amphibious floats. This option also loads at daybreak and gets you our fishing lodge around the same time as the Bissett seaplane airbase due to the Cessna Caravan flies 30% faster than the Otter out of Bissett seaplane airbase.
Airport transfers to St. Andrews are included.
This flight option is great if you can save money by booking a 12 or 1 pm flight home from Winnipeg International. It also allows your group to stay in Winnipeg the night before where there is more entrainment options than our Bissett seaplane base option.
