    The Washington Seaplane Pilots Association is hosting a Pop-Up Splash In at the Floathaven Seaplane Base this coming Sunday, August 16, from 11:00AM - 3:00PM. 

    The owners of Floathaven have been busy upgrading the facility including a major dock repair. Floathaven is one of four seaplane bases participating in the WSDOT “Fly Washington – Passport Program”. Bring your WSDOT Passport and get the Floathaven stamp!.

    This is the first of several pop-up splash-outs planned for the balance of the summer. We hope to see many of you at Lake Whatcom on Sunday. 

    • This is a Bring Your Own Picnic Lunch Event.
    • Water and soft drinks provided
    • Use 122.90 on approach and departure from Lake Whatcom.
    • 122.9 will be monitored on the ground to assist incoming aircraft
    • See Goggle Map for docking/beaching locations.
      • Floathaven’s seaplane dock will accommodate 5-6 aircraft
      • Overflow docking just north at Dan Older’s dock. Dan also has several beaching locations and a ramp for flying boats (please coordinate with Don Goodman if you would like to ramp)
    • Observe Invasive Species Guidelines below. Inspect plane before arrival.
    • Fly Quiet. Dial That Prop Back unless you really need all those RPMs.
    • Be Safe and Have Fun.
    • Observe appropriate social distancing protocols.
    • No Registration Required. Just Show up.

    There will certainly be lots of good seaplane chatter. Come & Enjoy.
