Steve our pilot was filled with knowledge of the area. We had an amazing ride through the fjords. We landed in one of the lakes and explored the area. We cruised the harbor on the way back to the dock. Excellent tour!!

The tour was awesome, great views of inner Alaska, the float plane was awesome, our pilot seemed bothered when we would ask a few questions, glad he knew how to fly the plane.

I have contacted them 1 or 2 weeks before arrival. Once I got to the port I talked to Lesley and got a good deal with them. They will treat you really good. They are very nice and I will highly recommend them.
