This was one of the highlights of our Alaska trip this year. Our pilot, Mike was awesome and knew so much about the area that we went back and did a second day with him.

What a wonderful experience. The staff and pilot were extremely nice and accommodating. The flight itself was beautiful with views of Seward, Resurrection Bay and Bear Glacier. Although it was a scheduled 30-minute we never felt rushed and our pilot took time to explain any...More

Hi Phyllis, Thanks for leaving your review about the trip. I love flying folks around for the first time up here as Seward has so much nice scenery to offer. Hope to see you again! -Pilot Mike

This was just amazing. The weather wasn’t the greatest, don’t let that scare you. We had the most mind blowing trip. Thank you Mike and Kat. If we ever get back to Alaska/Seward, we will definitely take the big tour. It’s well worth the money😊

Amazing trip! Breath taking views. Mike is an awesome guide. Took the glacier landing tour and saw Hawk glacier up close and personal. Saw a bull moose on the way up.

The bull moose are so rare to spot from the air....I probably have only seen 5 or 6 this season. Glad you made us a part of your vacation and thank you for the nice review. -Mike

We booked in advance but were there in July. I would think late afternoon would be beat but you could call and talk to them. Great group at Marathon Helicopters!
