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

We had taken a tour with Island Wings seven years ago to see bears catching salmon, so we looked forward to using Michelle again to see Misty Fjords. We had booked an 8:00 AM tour, since we would only be in Ketchikan until 2:00 PM. I had originally been concerned about flying too early, since the morning fog could be... More

I decided I wanted to go on a floatplane and had it as a birthday present. Unfortunately I was late in trying to book, some 6 weeks before, and having researched who was the best I decided I wanted to fly with Michelle but the only trip she had available was a one hour flight, This was one hour of...

Michelle and her team provide an awesome experience at Island Wings. If you've never experienced a floatplane before I highly recommend you add it to yor bucket list and then immediately call this company right now! Sure there are a lot of floatplane companies out there but the crew at Island Wings have lots of heart and really make you... More
