Aircraft Charter to Sable Island

Horse beside Sable Station We at Sable Aviation feel privileged to provide year-round fixed wing aircraft support to Sable Island, a delicate crescent of sand 300 km south-east of Halifax, NS. Since there is no airstrip on the island, our BN-2A Britten Norman Islander aircraft lands on the sandy expanse of the island's south beach.

Since Sable Island is a National Park Reserve, Parks Canada has sole control over all flights to the island. In 2023, we will be flying tourists to Sable Island from June through mid-September. To avoid interfering Aerial view with station operations, all fixed wing visitor flights are scheduled for weekends only, with Saturday being the primary visitation day and Sunday being the backup.

New in 2023, all of our flights to Sable Island are now sold on a per seat basis - you do not need to seek permission from Parks Canada. There are up to 7 seats available on any given flight (within a certain weight limit as defined by the mnufacturer of the aircraft), and anyone is free to reserve one, two or even all of them. For details on cost and how to book, see our FAQ page.
