Owner description: Glacier Bay Flightseeing for 26 years from Haines & Skagway Alaska. We Love what we do. Meticulous maintenance! Most completely rebuilt DH Beaver aircraft available in Alaska. Plenty of room, will seat up to 7 passengers all with large windows. Safe, smooth & exciting. Authentic, experienced & engaging. Up close & personal!

Absolutely the highlight of our 3 month RV trip to Alaska. Paul is a wonderful pilot and his plane is beautiful and perfectly maintained. Paul even made our friend who is very afraid of flying, totally comfortable during the flight, after the flight our friend said it's the best thing he has ever done! We also agree! The scenery was outstanding. The very best way to see and get an appreciation for Glacier National Park! To see glaciers so up close was awesome. Paul's knowledge of the terrain and information about the glaciers was exceptional!

It's an amazing experience! If you have the opportunity do not miss this! Best bang for your buck!
Loved it!
Sharon and Vaughn

This is by far the best way to view Glacier National Park and the Saint Elias Mountains I chose flight #2 from Haines and felt that I saw plenty of the jaw dropping scenery. It was a bit different than other scenic flights I’ve done because Paul is the owner and the pilot. He takes great pride (as he should) in his beautiful plane and it should be noted that if you’re taking photos with a camera, you should be very cautious to not touch the windows with it as they easily scratch. Since he was the owner it felt like more of a personal experience with someone who is truly passionate about both the area and the plane that’s being used. He provided a lot of interesting information as we were flying as well as incorporating his humor which made the mood very relaxed. I will definitely use their services on future Haines or Skagway visits! Seeing the glaciers and the world from the ground simply cannot compare to the bird’s eye view.

We really enjoyed this flight. Glacier Bay is a very difficult park to access (no maintained land access at all) so air and sea are the only real ways in. Amy and Paul worked with us to fit within our schedule as well as theirs and some weather delays. It all worked out great.

It was a cloudy day in the valley, but once we took off we traveled to fantastic views of the glaciers. We saw wildlife on the way and thoroughly enjoyed the glacier views. Highly recommend.
