Absolutely phenomenal experience with Mountain Flying Service. Though I have a fear of heights I felt very comfortable and really enjoyed every minute of our flight over Glacier Bay. Will definitely do it again if I ever get another chance to visit Alaska.

Whatever you do when visiting SE Alaska don't miss this experience! Fantastic flight over Glacier Bay organised by Amy and delivered by Paul a very experienced pilot in his beautifully maintained plane with picture size windows which give great views of the glaciers and bay for every seat in the plane. Fly out of Haines or Skagway.

We think everyone should experience Mountain Flying Service and Paul our excellent, informative, and funny owner/pilot. It has been the highlight of our summer spent in Alaska. Also, we must thank Amy his wife for for being so efficient in scheduling our flight. Thanks again for a great trip.

Amy and Paul are very helpful and friendly. Other than being a great pilot, Paul knows the glaciers like the back of his hands! He is very engaging in conversation which makes the excursion even more enjoyable. The view of the icefields and glaciers is breath-taking, plus the incidental wild-life. Whether you are in Haines or Skagway, make it a... More

We didn't book an excursion in Skagway. Instead we walked around the town and stumbled upon Mountain Flying Service. Paul was super friendly and said he was just leaving to pick someone up in Haines and do a short flight however there might be room on a 5pm flight that would fly over Glacier Bay and it would be more...

Paul and Amy have an awesome operation. We had a short stopover in Skagway and Amy worked with us to ensure that we got booked on a flight that met our port schedule. Paul's flight was spectacular. His route brought us out to the coast and we landed on the beach for a look around. We saw bears, eagles, mountain... More

I cannot say enough about our Glacier Bay flight, out of Skagway with Paul. It was exhilarating! From my initial dealings with Amy, who right from the outset made things so easy and obliging (thanks again Amy) to the actual flight with Paul over the incredible landscape of Glacier Bay National Park truly made the adventure the highlight of our...

As everyone else has noted, we had a breeze booking the flight, and an amazing time flying with Paul. We had 4 teenagers and 3 adults with us. Pictures do not do justice. We saw mountain goats and a bear, not to mention amazing glaciers and landscapes. We booked to fly out of Skagway, and it was a super easy... More

We flew with Paul on a flight seeing tour of Glacier Bay. Amy was great in helping set up the flight. Paul is a great pilot and shared lots of info on the areas we flew over. It was an awesome flight. The plane was comfortable with large clear windows. Everyone had headsets that kept the noise down and allowed... More

The flight with Paul was the highlight of our vacation in Alaska. His knowledge of the area with his various stories made our trip great. Naturally the beauty of Alaska speaks for itself, the view from the air gives a whole new perspective. I highly recommend doing this trip in Skagway. The previous day we did the seaplane tour in...
