Thanks, Betty. That was a great sunset trip. And thank you for being the first scenic flight of the season, and it was special to get close up views and pictures of your daughter's favorite glacier. Come back soon! Jim

Wonderful. Jim and his wife were friendly and helpful. We will take another flight with the when we visit Alaska again, this time longer and to another destination. Recommended length of visit depends on your time and also how much you wish to spend.

Hey there, thanks for the wonderful review! I'm glad the short flight wet your whistle. We can fly you to all the nearby towns in south central Alaska. With astonishing scenery along the way and wildlife too. Take care, Jim and Maria

I would highly recommend Jim if you are interested in seeing wildlife and glaciers. We took the wildlife tour and were not disappointed. We were able to see bears, seals, mountain goats and all the glaciers around the area. Don't forget your camera!!!
