My spouse, brother and I took this excursion with Island Wings @ 10 am on 5/27/2014. The entire experience was incredible and far exceeded our expectations. We reseached and booked this tour directly based on various travel articles and prior participants' reviews. Every aspect of the trip was perfect. We were met by the van at the time and place specified and taken directly to the plane. All employees were friendly and efficient. The plane was beautiful and spotless. Michelle was very knowledgeable and personable, as well as an excellent pilot. She showed us amazing sights that will remain with us forever. Landing on a stunning mountain lake and being able to spend time on the shore was a big plus that many tours don't provide. Don't know of anything Michelle could have done differently to enhance our experience. Her love of Alaska and flying was evident. We highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting Ketchikan.

Loved the flight with Michelle!! Flying so close to the snow-capped peaks and landing on a beatiful mountain lake are not to be missed. I can't say enough how much I loved this experience. A definite highlight in my Alaska trip!

This excursion (booked direct) was one of the best highlights of our cruise. We had an incredible time on the seaplane. Michelle made us completely comfortable, and the full plane (6 people) was still very roomy. We were able to see fjords and amazing scenery. We landed on a rocky area and Michelle took many photos of my husband and I with the plane and the gorgeous background. Michelle said that she evaluates the tides and passenger’s physical dexterity to determine where to land. So people of all ages can go. Would totally recommend this excursion and we plan to go again on our next trip to Alaska.

This trip was awesome!!!!! Michele is an experienced pilot with many years of local experience. This float plane trip is different than most because Michele lands on alpine lakes and allows passengers get out on shore as opposed to just the floats. She chooses the lake depending on the weather,winds and lighting. The views were amazing and there is no other way to see them. I am glad we saved this for last because everything else pales by comparison. If you do no other excursion in Alaska, do this one with Island Wings.

We booked this flight seeing trip in January prior to our May cruise to Alaska. Quick turn- around to book if you remember they only get mail once a week. They do email you daily if you have questions. Michelle was a great pilot and we saw the fjords and landed on the water. All seats on the six seater are great and we did switch seats after the stop. Her staff is friendly and helpful. A must do in Ketchikan.
