Jack and Sherri are wonderful. They are knowledgeable of the area and provided us with a spectacular day on their air boat over to the million dollar bridge and glacier. We were fortunate to see the glacier calving. Thanks for a special time in Cordova.

A great experience with wonderful hosts. They took care of their guests and shared their life experiences in this beautiful region. The glacier does not valve any more, but it is still spectacular.
