Had the opportunity to fly out with them twice for fishing. The pilots and staff were great. On our return trip our pilot made a few passes over the glacier to give us some great pictures!

How many people can go on a one day fly out to see bears and fish a little. May view a glacier or two on the way back. Most likely will be mid June
