We had a beautiful day, a great pilot and one of the older, smaller planes. Size does matter---there were six of us and both my sons and I are 6" plus and weight between 205 and 225. It was a tight fit but beautiful scenery.

We were on the first tour of the season. Staff is excellent. They gave out chowder, coffee and hot chocolate. They fed the eagles and it was really amazing. Great scenery and a man gives you historical info during the entire tour. It was good

Is it better to fly first thing in the morning, or in the afternoon?

Response from Dave D | Property representative |
Hi Ida! We tend to get some fog in the mornings, so your best bet would be to fly in the late morning/early afternoon!

I thought they were a little more than competitors, but worth the additional price. Very nice planes and good pilots. I toured with several companies in AK too. Not sure on their availability.
