I have always wanted to take a float plane and experience a takeoff and landing on the water. I asked Chuck our pilot where the best seat was and he said beside him, so i got to experience this from the co-pilots seat! The weather was beautiful and it was truly an experience i

We did a 7 day cruise down the coast of Alaska which was breathtaking throughout, but this was one of the highlights. Cruising over the mountains, you look down at beautiful lakes and fjords, and see glaciers in the distance. The fact that you take off and land on water in a

Nice, gentle flight above the misty fjords with lakes and waterfalls and mist making it magical. Our pilot performed a smooth landing on the fjord and we were able to get out and stand on the pontoons to take pictures. Lovely day!

We booked this tour through our cruise ship at the last minute and we re all so glad we did. We were nervous about being on a small plane, but the pilot was reassuring and we did something we will probably never get a chance to do again. Thrilling! It was worth the money.

Amazing tour over Misty Fjords. You get a bird’s eye view (literally!) of the fjords. The plane takes you close enough where you can make out some details from ground below. We had a sunny, clear day which helped. Well worth it!
