From anchored cruise ships, to liters, to kayakers, locals, and commercial fishing boats, landing a float plane in our channel offers the most difficult task our pilots have to face. Charter boats have the same problems. Working on a charter boat myself, I know how hard it is to "dodge" the kayakers that are sometimes nearly impossible to see, to float planes landing, to other charter boats, plus all the locals, and having to stay away from the cruise ships for security reasons. So, if it looks like it's chaotic in the channel...IT IS!
