This air service has been highly reviewed; so can hardly add something new. We had a very positive experience on a beautiful sunny day. One of our party who is very susceptible motion sickness, got sick even with medication and our pilot was very sympathetic and adjusted altitude to reduce turbulence. Our experience confirmed all the other positive reviews. A... More

After much research, our family (4 adults, 2 teens) chose Island Wings to show us the beauty of Misty Fiords. We were not disappointed. The company is so well run.. from pre-payment to pick-up in town. Timely, clean, efficient, wonderful! Michelle is very knowledgeable, highly skilled and friendly. We enjoyed every minute of her tour guiding/piloting. We can highly recommend... More

Our flight over Misty Fiords National Monument with Michelle was a highlight of our week in Alaska. She's a most competent and knowledgeable pilot and the views from the plane were unsurpassed. You get a different sense of the vastness of this area when seeing it from the air. Michelle stops on a lake halfway through the trip and you're... More

Husband and I went on this flight seeing tour after reading all the reviews. This was a highlight of our trip. Michelle and staff were awesome. She was very informative as we were flighing. We saw commercial boats catching salmon and she explained their whole process which was very interesting. Even saw a whale on way back! Would highly recommend!

Yet another wonderful trip with island wings! Went to Anan bear viewing and had an amazing experience- this was worth every penny and by far the highlight of our trip! Great flight to Anan, Island Wings provided our own guide who was knowledgeable and helpful. We saw numerous Bears harbor seals and Eagles.

After reading numerous positive reviews touting the merits of Island Wings and, specifically, Michelle, we booked a flightseeing trip of Misty Fiords.... and are we ever glad we did. Booking online was simple. We paid half of the fee upfront, and the remainder after the flight. The meeting place near the visitor centre was easy to find from our cruise... More

It was an amazing experience. Michelle did a great job including us in the flight. I loved that we got to talk with her during the flight. She was very informative and is an expert pilot. I booked this on our own and it was very well worth it!

Michelle and Island Wings Air made for a remarkable Alaskan memory--- the beauty of Misty Fjords from the air is indescribable. Safety is paramount and she truly provides a safe environment while showcasing Alaska's stunning scenery. Our landing on Nooya Lake was surreal and the fact that she allows you to get out and walk around the shoreline separates her... More

Michelle and her staff were true professionals, making us feel at ease and flying over the spectacular vastness of Misty Fjords. Although Michelle must have done this flight hundreds of times, she is so enthusiastic and in love with her job and the beauty of the surroundings. We were in awe of the majestic snow-capped peaks, and even landed on... More

We booked the Misty Fjords floatplane tour with Michelle online after reading her reviews and were blown away! Michelle is not only a seriously amazing pilot but she is extremely knowledgable and has a way of putting any nervous flyers immediately at ease. The areas we flew over were some of the most gorgeous things we've ever seen. Landing on... More
