Great excursion! Flight was bumpy but so worthwhile! Saw many glaciers, waterfalls and scenic valley views. Ride was 20-25 minutes from Juneau. After landing we were greeted by a black bear up a tree. Wow! She came down while we ate the excellent BBQ Salmon, beans, baked apples, coleslaw, dill biscuits and homemade sourdough bread. They topped off the meal... More

OK, the bear coming out during dinner is a set up, but the flight alone is worth the price. Floatplanes are a big part of Alaska, and Wings Airways Otters are clean and comfortable. Every seat is a window seat. And the salmon feast isn't bad either.

Arrived in Juneau on a cruise. Had no plans made. We saw all these floatplanes. Decided to give it a whirl! Great operation, super organized and a wonderful experience. My Dad is in a wheelchair and they could not have been more helpful. Everyone has a window! We flew over 5 glaciers! Great narrative during the flight! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We chose the flight only option and had a wonderful day for our 10am departure Although advertised as an hour adventure in reality the flight is 40 minutes but what a great flight. Our route over 5 glaciers was awesome and really showed the extent of the Icefields. Worth the cost - a fantastic flight

Taking off in a float plane from downtown Juneau habour and flying trough massive mountains, huge glaciers, pristine waterways is a fabulous experience. Everyone gets a window seat, headsets and all views from the plane are absolutely breathtaking. After 20 minutes the plane smooth lands on the river near Taku Lodge, an old log cabin with lots of history and... More

Fantastic float plane flight over some awesome glaciers. The fresh cooked wild salmon meal over an open wood fire delicious, hosts really friendly. Well worth the side tour from the Alaskan cruise

Fantastic flight over glaciers and waterways en route to a world class salmon feast. Great friendly service loading onto the float plane and at the lodge. Meal and flight included in the price.

We booked this excursion through NCL cruiseline in September 2010. Although on the pricey side it was very well worth it. The video they show on their website is exactly what you will experience only more so. We walked down the pier from the ship to the seaplane. In just minutes you are flying over glaciers on the way to... More

This excursion was also while on an Alaskan land cruise. While our other glacier tour was amazing the Taku Lodge will be the most memorable probably due to it's history. The seaplane trip over glaciers was in itself mind blowing but when we landed at the mouth of an active glacier and saw the Lodge we knew we were in... More

While on an Alaskan cruise we decided to take an excursion to Taku glacier Lodge, a log cabin built sometime in the 1920’s that was used as a hunting and fishing lodge. Access to the lodge is by seaplane from downtown Juneau. The trip is billed as a sightseeing and dinner tour. While traveling on the 30 minute floatplane you... More
