We purchased this excursion through the cruise ship and are so thankful we did. It was one of the highlights or our trip to Juneau. The pilot was super nice and very experienced. We wore headphones that played a recorded audio description of what we were seeing and sometimes the pilot would interrupt to show us something that wasn't on... More

The best experience I had while in Alaska. The floatplane was amazing, we had the best view of several glaciers in the Juneau Icefield. Landing in the Taku river was wonderful, seeing the Lodge in the distance rustic and beautiful. The food we had was excellent, the salmon we ate from the outside grill was outstanding, a lot of food.... More

This adventure probably ranks up at the top of a very long list of fun/stunning/valued adventures my family and I have had. the views from the floatplane over some of the glaciers and areas of Alaska you just can't access any other way will...

Excellent adventure into Alaska's outback, and to a historic frontier destination: Taky Glacier Lodge. The tour flew us over five glaciers in the Juneau Icefield. From the plane window, there were amazing views of glacier crevasses and blue melt-water pools. Landing in the Taku River is also an experience, and seeing how far-out in the frontier this lodge was built...... More

This was an excellent alternative to a heli-tour. Mom was not feeling the helicopter thing so we did the seaplane instead. It was gorgeous. They took us for a fly-over of the glaciers and had a nice audio bit to accompany the sights. The tour goes out to the Taku Lodge that's a historic landmark only reachable via seaplane or... More

I wanted to see a part of Alaska that can not be reached by train or bus. I could not imagine a better way to do that than by float plane. Even though we were the very last cruise ship to visit Juneau this year, the weather was PERFECT! The planes have been retrofitted with super powerful engines. So even... More

Between the seaplane flight, beautiful scenery, knowledgeable commentary and incredible food, this attraction is worth the time and money. It was by far one of the top tours we took in Alaska. I would recommend this highly to anyone who is planning an Alaska trip. Lunch was incredible and I have never had salmon that prepared so deliciously. Sitting on... More

This starts with a flightplane trip past five glaciers and lands on the Taku river between Taku Lodge and the Taku glacier - a beautiful spot. After having time for a walk up to the waterfalls, the staff offers a fantastic salmon lunch. The king salmon we had for lunch was caught that morning and cooked over an alder wood... More
