We really enjoyed the flight out to the bear reserve. Tim was our guide and he was really good..... We enjoyed our time with him. From the reviews we had expected more from Michelle the pilot. Maybe it was a bad day but it seemed to be all business . The office was difficult to get a hold of ........ More

With every port of call bringing something more amazing than the last, how in the world was Ketchikan going to out-do the whales and the glaciers and helicopters and dogsledding? Answer: Island Wings and the astonishing Anan Creek bear platform. ... Wow. Just wow. The observation platform puts you right down next to the water, where the salmon are packed... More

Michelle and her staff will take good care of you. She is a very experienced pilot with a great plane so you can feel absolutely confident. The conversations on her trips were fun and informative. She is knowledgeable and passionate about things going on locally and tells it like it is! The bear viewing at Traitors Cove was great; beautiful... More

We took the Traitors Cove bear viewing tour. It was right on time. Very smooth flight, Michelle was very informative on the flight also. The guide on shore, Tim, was excellent. We were able to see a total of 16 bears, one a mother and cub that could not have been more than 15 feet away from us. Felt very... More

I have been meaning to write this review since our 30th wedding anniversary trip last September 2013. We had an amazing float plane trip with Michelle. I was very nervous but the soothing music she plays helped me and she is everything you could ask for in a float plane hostess! We booked this excursion ourselves separate from our Norwegian... More

We went on the Traitors Cove bear tour and float plane trip! It was amazing! We felt so safe the entire time and were able to see 10 different black bears while we were there. It was a dream come true trip!

My wife and I flew in June 2014 with Michelle to Misty Fjords. It was just wonderful. Michelle is a pro, and made up feel very comfortable. I was in the co-pilot seat on the way out, and she'd get my attention every time there was something to see and photograph on her side of the plane. We are going... More

Amazing flight through the mountains and landed on a secluded lake. Great perspective of southeast Alaska that you just can't appreciate without seeing it from the air. The pilot was great, no worries about airsickness with her, it was extremely smooth. She did a wonderful job of narrating along the way. The highlight of the Alaska trip.

My wife and I took a float plane tour of Misty Fjords with Island Wings on our recent visit to Ketchikan. I cannot overstate what a great experience it was. Our pilot Michelle was superb in every sense of the word. She was friendly, outgoing, professional, and extremely informative during our flight. No question went unanswered. She even landed on...
