Seaplane flight over glaciers

Brilliant views, amazing glaciers, even Taku glacier which is still expanding. You get a good all round view of some of the many glaciers. About 40-45 minutes in the air and... read more

Brilliant views, amazing glaciers, even Taku glacier which is still expanding. You get a good all round view of some of the many glaciers. About 40-45 minutes in the air and right on the harbourside where the cruise ship docks.

A phenomenal experience. Our pilot, Sam, took us over five different glaciers in the Taku Inlet area, flying so that people on both sides of the plane got views. Absolutely stunning icescapes, breathtaking is the only word I can think of to describe the flight. Was taking pictures and shooting video the whole time. We then landed on the water... More

I was hesitant about the float plane but once in the air it was fabulous and would do it again Glaciers were well worth seeing and the pilot had a running narrative over earphones while in the air. At the lodge, they were baking salmon over an open grill while bears roamed around the outskirts of the lodge. When we... More

This was by far the best excursion on our recent trip to Alaska. The float plane ride was fun and we had great views of mountains and glaciers. Taku Lodge is in a remote location with a nice lawn and an amazingly close glacier. The lodge itself is comfortable and cozy. Dinner was plentiful and very tasty. I have eaten... More

Had a great trip touring over 5 glaciers. Great pilot. Had a professional presentation going as we passed over each area so we were given an excellent overview of what we were seeing.

We boarded a floatplane and were treated to the most amazing scenery, including Taku River and Taku Glacier. (The pilot on the return trip was kind enough to point out another glacier calving...our first sighting of such!). Upon reaching Taku Lodge, we were greeted by the smells of king salmon on the grill and a young man with a very... More

I admit, the thought of getting in a small plane completly frightened me, but it was SO worth it, i would do it in a heartbeat. It was a bit grey and rainy when we were in Juneau, and at first our trip was "on hold" while a pilot tested the safety of flying (which i very much appreciated!), but... More

This was the highlight of my wonderful Alaska cruise! We flew with a knowledgeable pilot over glaciers and got up close and personal looks at their configuration. So interesting - and beautiful! The lodge, with its resident bear, is not to be missed. Truly one of the finest meals I've ever had and hosted by wonderful, friendly folks. I enjoyed... More

This air adventure was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. We got to the office early to watch the planes take off and land which was cool. The planes hold 10 people plus the pilot. One lucky person gets to ride co-pilot! The time in the air was incredible! Flying over the glaciers and water was a... More
