Re: Post your 2022 bug reports here!

Any chance you could confirm if you saw fuel for sale at Rock Harbor?

Early/Late Season Fuel Availability - 2022

I didn't see any other posts on this, but for other early/late season seaplane folks it appears the stores at both ends will sell isobutane & white gas starting 5/22, even if the rest of the store isn't open yet. https://www.isleroyaleseaplanes.com/about-8 I had been planning on using my twig st...

Re: Feldtmann loop or not

The full loop is very nice. I found Siskiwit Bay to be a beautiful campground with Lake Superior fishing and swimming opportunities. The beach hike north out of Siskiwit towards Island Mine is wonderful. When I did the loop I didn’t stay at Island Mine and just continued to Windigo. It is a longer d...

Re: Cancellation Plans...

Thanks for all these suggestions. Hopefully I won't need to use them! The Porcupine Mountains State Park looks like a perfect backup plan should my flight not work out. I'll be back in da yoop later this summer for our family vacation and we'll be spending time at Copper Harbor and Pictured Rocks. O...

Cancellation Plans...

I am taking the seaplane over for a short trip this May. My vacation time is quite short and if my flight to the island gets cancelled, or pushed beyond my current departure date, I'd like to have backup plans in and around Keweenaw/Houghton area. I'd love to have this group's suggestions on alterna...

Re: Windigo side new gift shop/restaurant

I do have fond memories of meeting and talking "trail" with other hikers right after we finished the minong on that deck. Hopefully it has a similar atmosphere. I do love the charm of windigo. Thanks for all the replies. I guess we will all find out very soon! Starting the countdown to ou...

Thanks. I also received a quick response from Isle Royale Seaplanes. They have 3 aircraft ranging in capacity from 4-7 (dependent on weight). The latest flight out of Hancock is 4pm.

Seaplane Times & Capacity...

Daydreaming about getting to the island this year. I've haven't taken the seaplane before and had a couple questions that aren't readily answered by their website. Hope someone here might know. I did message them as well, but my daydreaming is impatient... What is the max number of people the seapla...

Would any recent visitors please comment on the blue/green algae status of the inland lakes? Leaving soon and wondering if they've had any blooms. Thx.
