This was the greatest highlight of our Alaskan cruise - and we had many highlights! Our pilot, Ken, was perfect - not too much chatting, and not too little. He has over 73,000 miles, and we were so comfortable with him in the cockpit. Highly...More

Nice pilots, clean safe planes. We landed on a lake and saw great waterfalls, a hint of a bear, and lots of wild Mountain Goats on the ridges. Breathtakingly beautiful, and a lot of fun. Well worth your time and money.
