Take a seaplane

Moosehead Lake is well known as a bustling seaplane hotspot. It’s the home of the International Seaplane Fly-in, after all! The region has a number of scenic and charter flight companies that will be happy to fly you to and from the lake.

Flights depend on a lot of conditions, including whether the lake has frozen over for the winter. Be sure to contact the companies to see if they can accommodate your needs!
