Busiest Seaplane Harbor in the Country

Busiest Seaplane Harbor in the Country

I’m told that Friday Harbor has the most flights of any “water” airport in the country. During the kayak voyage described in the post below, I had to get out of the way of not one but two seaplanes from Kenmore Air out of Lake Union in Seattle.

This large photo shows one of them just powering up on take off with the north shore of Brown Island in the background. I could feel the throb of the engine and propeller in my chest, I was so nearby.
