I’m super-happy to announce that Atleo Air has signed on to be the first sponsor of the Secret Coast expedition!
We need float plane transport up to our start at remote Rugged Point, way up the coast. And we also need float plane support to get our kayaks up to our transition from the hiking section to the paddling section at Boat Basin, Hesquiaht Harbour.
I’ve been flying with Atleo Air for years – actually for decades. (I probably took that top photo something like 20 years ago!) We flew in to Megin Lake with our folding kayaks with them just this past summer (here’s a photo of Dave unloading one of the boats).
They are a really great company, completely locally owned and operated out of Tofino. They also hold values that I really respect- especially regarding all aspects of Clayoquot Sound, from the many communities that live here to the wild creatures and biodiversity that need to be taken care of. We’re very grateful that they have come aboard to help us out.
