We were on an Alaskan cruise with a stop in Skagway. Paul worked with us so we could schedule our flight in the afternoon & be able to do the White Pass Scenic Railway in the morning. It's a 10-15 min walk from the cruise ships or the railway to the town's little airport. We had a jam-packed schedule full... More

The pilot is very experienced and the plane solid so no concerns there. The trip is amazing views fantastic. Glacier bay is accessible via sea or air. we did both, and both are very nice. Still if we had to chose only one, I would vote for the flight. warmly recommended !

Flying over Glacier Bay National Park and the spectacular surrounding area with Paul in his de Havilland Beaver was an indescribable thrill. You can't imagine the beauty unless you see it. I was a little apprehensive about flying in such a small plane (it seats eight, including the pilot) over such mountainous terrain, especially on a windy day in Skagway... More

Paul was an amazing pilot that made us feel safe throughout the flight, and he provided good information and stories regarding the area and scenery. Very personable with a great attitude. I highly recommend flying with him.

This trip was fabulous. From booking with Amy to flying with pilot Paul was a great experience that is highly recommended. We looked at a number of companies and was satisfied this was the best. Paul went out of his way to provide the best trip.

WOW!!!! I don't think I have said this word more in my life than when I was up with Paul over Glacier Bay National park. The flight was amazing!!!! The views were breathtaking.
