Rafter and Kayaker Transportation

Coastal Air Service has the largest aircraft in the area. Our DeHavilland turbine Otter allows us to move raft or kayaking gear and equipment in fewer flights due to our large cargo capacity and seats for up to 10 passengers. Fewer flights means less cost to you.

If you are planning a raft trip down the Tatshenshini or Alsek river, or flying out to Icy Bay to camp and kayak we can provide you with safe transportation to or from Yakutat, or Haines. We can help you figure out which route will make the best economic sense for your group size.

In our turbine DeHavilland Otter, we can move groups of 14 and raft gear, in just 2 trips. The safety and reliability of a turbine engine can’t be beat. Large raft frames easily fit through our large cargo doors making for easy loading and unloading.

Please call us today at (907) 784-3831 and we will help you get your trip together.
