at Boisvert & Fils Seaplane Base,
Probably the closest seaplane base to downtown Montreal. 100LL and maintenance available. Dock for about 3 planes, and a ramp an tractor. They take your plane in and out of the water if you stay longer than a few hours. About 100 yards from a bus stop; 15 minutes drive from downtown. It's just outside of the CYUL tower control zone; if you arrive via the VFR corridor to the north (over the Riviere des Prairies) below 1300 you don't need a transponder code or prior ATC clearance. Local frequency is 123.2 (uncontrolled airport).
Beware of traffic from nearby Mascouche airport (CKS3) to the north. It's advisable to monitor 122.65.
Also there is a private strip and seaplane docks between Boisvert and Masouche called Contant/Laval Aviation.
