When planning your return flight we recommend to have one-two days in reserve in case of bad weather. We work with a good airline, but the pilots are not magicians – they fly through the weather, but a helicopter is not an all-weather vehicle! On our way is two high mountain ranges at two thousand meters, so safety is first. Khabarovsk is a beautiful city and it is better to devote one day of sightseeing than thing about maybe miss the plane and you have lost the tickets... it is also desirable that copies of e-tickets left in Your proxies, in the event of bad weather it was possible to postpone the date of departure.

Used equipment: For fishing and rafting down the mountain-taiga rivers we use 14-20 foot rafts with motors from 3-5 HP Motors this quiet and economical. The use of such motors has many advantages, namely: safety, comfort , and fast movement speed. Rafting on mountain rivers are unpredictable and often dangerous because of the treacherous combs, snags, sandbars and other obstacles, and often need to paddle hard, to go in the right direction or go around the obstacle. With the motor like this can be done easily and quickly. On the mountain rivers fish usually immediately follows the roll at the beginning of the pit, at the mouth of tributary streams, bays, and on the way out of the pit before rolling. The middle part of the long bends are usually empty and there's a rare bite. The motor provides the ability to quickly pass these areas to pay more attention to promising places. So the same motor gives you the opportunity to stand in the stream to fish in a good pit, go back to unhook the lure, walk the bays and So the use of motors in the alloy significantly increases the comfort of the efficiency of fishing.
For traveling to the Shantar archipelago and Octomore Bay we have built a base that can accommodate 40 people . On the basis of available houses, kitchen, dining room, bath, and observation deck for whale watching and speed boat RIBA for excursions to the Islands.
Tents: Very comfortable Maverik and Salewa . Under the kitchen-dining room we use prefabricated tents Maverik Cosmos . From the equipment mandatory a portable generator (for charging the cameras, the light in the camp, etc.), camping furniture, utensils, coolers for perishable products, chainsaw, satellite phone , portable radios, gas or diesel cooking hob , Hiking bath. The equipment will allow You to feel the journey safe and comfortable.
