The tour includes a water landing—a unique experience only a floatplane can provide.

You won’t regret this opportunity!

I can’t recommend this enough. Michelle is an amazing pilot that has lived in the area for over 20 years and has been a pilot since high school! She knows the area like the back of her hand. It’s an opportunity I would do again, without a doubt!

Our trip was cancelled due to weather. We appreciate the caution shown by the tour company given the circumstances. Now we’re hoping Viator will refund us.

What an amazing time we had!!! We took my 85 year old mom and they were very gracious, helping us get her on and off the plane. Michelle is a wonderful pilot and truly loves showing visitors this beautiful place. Skip the rest and go with the best, Island Wings!!!

What a great experience. Michelle was an excellent pilot. The views were spectacular. Landing on the lake and the scenery was amazing.
Great flight/tour, was able to alter our route so we didn't have to cancel due to weather.

This tour was a highlight of our trip. Due to incoming weather, Michelle gave us the option of skipping the Misty Fjords national monument since visibility was low. Instead she took us north to the northern fjords. I had originally booked through Viator a different seaplane tour but cancelled after they emailed me to tell me they no longer offered the water landing they advertised. Michelle landed us at Traitors Cove and it was smooth as butter. She has been doing this for over 30 years and gave us great commentary during the flight with her immense knowledge of the area and it's history. I would find out later that she took my parents on their scenic flight over a decade ago. Also, we later were viewing the aviation exhibit in the town museum and came across Michelle's photos and bio. Pretty cool, you can't go wrong with this excursion.
Don’t skip this experience!

Michelle was great! Her narration during the flight was so interesting and informative. The views were spectacular. The flight was smooth and the landing was amazing, I literally didn’t feel us hit the water. So cool to land in Punchbowl Cove to get out and explore. Definitely a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend this experience and this company!

Affordable custom solo tour on short notice!
, Apr 2021
I came as a solo traveller in the off-season, and they were able to put together a custom flight for me at a reasonable price! The customer service was outstanding start to finish. Also, I tend to be a nervous flier, and Michelle and her team made me feel so comfortable right away. I would eagerly fly with them again in a future visit!
