I did the sightseeing tour on Wednesday, and the views i saw, and the service I received, far surpassed any expectations I had. Taylor was very personable in getting me checked in and provided outstanding customer service. Wayne was my pilot, and he was great in making everyone feel very welcome and comfortable for the duration of the flight. It was also was neat in hearing some of Juneau's history in the headset along the way, and all of the examples that were given that really put into perspective just how massive those glaciers really are. I would recommend the trip to anyone who wants to see the incredible views SE Alaska has to offer!

Are you kidding me? WOW! First....... taking off from the water in a pontoon plane is so exciting!!! (By the way much smoother than land) The views are beyond spectacular!!! Then, sigh, you LAND on the water right in front of the lodge! (Very smooth!) Short walk up to lodge, gift shop and salmon is being cooked on the grill. Yum. I went into the lodge while the other guests were still outside... and so glad I did, because I got the full blast experience of seeing the inside of the lodge without any other people. See pix! The fireplace was roaring! The bar was set up. Lovely set up for lunch!

Taku glacier ice pouring into the lake right in front of the lodge! WOW!!
Loved meeting Becca! Robert gave a brief talk about the history of the lodge... which was INCREDIBLE. What a story!
While outside, heard someone say "bear"... ! Turned to see a full gown bear trying to find salmon leftovers on the grill. Another bear came up and she chased it away. The black lab dogs were not bothered by the bears! The bears paid absolutely no attention to the people.
So wow... what a great cruise excursion! The gift shop has EXCEPTIONALLY good products!!! The hat I got that said "Taku Lodge" was quite frankly the best quality cap I've ever seen. Ever. Only $25.00. I got local pottery as well. CYDNEY in the gift shop helped me a lot!
What a lovely experience. Don't miss it. We were on a Crystal cruise and space was limited... so make sure you sign up early. Definitely one of my best travel memories!

We were disappointed as our helicopter flight tho glacier and dog sledding was cancelled due to fog so we were able to book for the float plane flight to taku lodge. Smooth takeoff and landings. Upon arrival at the lodge we watched fresh salmon being cooked over open fire. When counted we went into the lodge tho eat the salmon with lovely salads. Two bears descended from a tree and liked the batting juices from beside the bbq. After they left another older make bear came out of the forest.
A wonderful experience around.

Wow! What an incredible trip! It was well organized, the seaplane clean & comfortable and the salmon bake delicious. The views of the glaciers from the sky took your breathe away. We have a bear come, which was very fun. Enjoy!!!

My husband, son and I took the seaplane tour while on a Princess cruise. It was a fantastic experience. All of the personnel were pleasant and professional. The pilot was informative and entertaining. The tour lasted about 40 minutes and the sights were breath taking. We had a spectacular day with blue skies and 70+ degree temperatures. I strongly encourage this tour group if you are in Alaska and want a seaplane tour.
