What would it cost to fly into Florence or Isabel one-way for 2 people/one canoe? Leaving from Temagami area.

Here is the Lakeland Airways information (directly from a link elsewhere on this site):

... prices vary based on how far you intend to travel by air, but generally the prices range from $150.00 to $220.00 Cdn. That is per flight .....each plane takes in 2 adults and their gear and straps on a Canoe. ... feel free to contact Lakeland directly at http://www.lakelandthreebuoys.com
they can give you their latest prices and detail on restrictions.

Here are some prices that I got from Lakeland a few months ago for our trip this summer.It'll be interesting to see if the prices will remain the same, given that fuel prices are going through the roof!
Note that these prices are for a 16 foot canoe, using the Cessna. Longer canoes require the use of the Beaver, at a higher cost.

The cost for two people and a 16' canoe to
Scarecrow Lake including tax one way would be $433.35
Smoothwater Lake $417.51
Florence Lake $338.33
Sunnywater Lake $409.60

tsm has probably given you the most current prices. In 2003 I checkedwhat it would cost to fly into Lady Dufferine and it was $ 350 so with the new fuel cost I would say tsm's prices sounds right.

There is another option for flights.

Marshall is the pilots name, but I can't remember the name of the company.
Great guy and prices are better than Lakeland.

Someone here must know the name and number?

Norair Flight and Outfitting Co.
(705)237-8494

One of the reason their flight costs are competative is that they are 20 odd kilometers closer to backcountry destinations, as their base of operations is on Island 216, Central Lake Temagami.

I asked Norair for a quote last week. Unfortunately they no longer provide fly-in services for canoes, insurance costs are too high.
