"I stopped into the Isle Royal seaplane office 8 or so years ago and asked if they would fly me around the Island to photograph the four lighthouses, man, said no" Jim, the reason the pilot said no is because that Island Royale is a natural preserve. Funded by the National Parks Service. This means that only flights over 3,000 feet are allowed. Exception is only to the sea plane base for transportation of island workers and supplies or emergencies. Reason: Noise abatement. Note: the fine is $5,000.00 and the loss of your pilotís license for one year.
