This was everything the other reviewers have said. A very professional operation from booking through to landing. The scenery was breathtaking and Michelle was a very capable and knowledgeable pilot. There were no bad seats on the plane. We had a cloudy day (it is called the Misty Fjords for a reason) and Michelle said that this makes for the... More

My trip to Alaska was full of wonderful adventures and flying with Island Wings is one I won't forget anytime soon. The feeling of being a part of a family is the first thing that hit me as we got down to the dock and met with our pilot and owner Michelle. Her abilities to handle the plane was immediate... More

We chose this company from reading previous reviews and were so happy that we did. All communication was efficient and professional from the time of our booking until our flight. The experience and information that Michelle shared with us exceeded our expectations. Thank you for a wonderful day!!

Our final shore excursion that capped our wonderful Alaskan cruise. We chose well! Efficient meeting and pick up point. Michelle , owner ,pilot , and a very cool lady smoothly took off from the port. She proceeded to educate and enthrall us with the beautiful splendour of the national monument. Our landing on a secluded lake was perfect and fun.... More

Our experience was great from start to finish. We were picked up on time and given a wonderful tour. Michelle is a great pilot & guide the view from her plane has to be seen in person. Words cannot describe what you will see. I highly recommend it.

This was one of the best shore excursions we've ever had. We booked this independently from the cruise line and were very happy all around. We had prompt and courteous communications during booking. Once in Ketchikan, the pick-up point was easy to find and the pick-up service was right on time. Michelle, the owner/pilot is both a great flyer and... More

It was a picture perfect day for a sea plane ride in Ketchikan. We were met at the dock and transferred a very short distance to the plane dock. Once there Michelle gave a short safety presentation and then we were off....so smooth on all the landings and take-offs. Once airborne the views were spectacular. We flew out to the... More

This was one of our favorite excursions on our recent Alaskan cruise. We booked well in advance, and all communications from Island Wings were prompt and professional. I was nervous about flying in a small plane, but the flight was amazing - the smoothest take-off and landing that I've ever experienced. Owner and pilot Michelle provided a great historical and...

Wow. Our family can't stop talking about our float plane trip to the misty fjords, but what really made it special was our pilot Michelle. Don't go with another company as michelle and her staff were impressive on every aspect of a tour and more. They were timely, even a bit early, to pick is up. All paperwork was fast... More

For those of you that have any trepidation about flying, especially in small planes that take off and land on water, there's no need to let that deter you from missing out on this experience. The aircraft, crew, and of course the pilot Michelle, make this a smooth adventure. There is no other way except by air to appreciate the... More
