we booked a flight over the Misty Fjords in June. It was incredible. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather and since we booked early in the morning the tide was down so we got to land in an inlet and get out and see some of the best scenery. Michelle is so informative and helpful. We all had... More

If you are in Ketchikan do yourself a favor and book a flight with Michelle, the owner of Island Wings Air Service. She is the consummate pilot with over thirty years of experience. We had a SUPER time. The flight includes landing on a lake in Misty Fjords National Monument Wilderness. We got out and took pictures and she took... More

I had booked with Island Wings in March of 2014 to insure I would get a spot for Anan Bear Observatory which has both black and brown bears catching salmon. When the day finally arrived, it was sunny but according to the cameras, where we needed to land for Anan was socked in with fog. Initially, I was disappointed but... More

We were scheduled to fly to Anan Creek for the bear viewing, but due to fog in that area Michelle told us she could take us to Traitor's Cove instead or we could cancel with no penalty if we preferred. Although we were disappointed not to be able to go to Anan our group choose to have her fly us... More

The trip with Island Wings was just what we expected when we decided to skip the cruise line excursions and book on our own. The experience with Michelle was fun, authentic and we felt safe the whole way. Highly recommend!

I've always wanted to fly in a float plane so riding in the small de Havilland Beaver was a treat by itself. Two water takeoffs & landings, even better. But the Misty Fjords National Monument by air? Breathtaking. I'm so glad we chose to take this tour instead of the one offered by our cruise ship. Not just because it... More

We took a 20 minute float plane ride to Traitor's Cove. Michelle, the owner and our pilot made us feel quite secure and we enjoyed the ride very much. On the return trip she took a different route through a beautiful valley and we could see the town of Ketchikan as we flew over. Once we arrived at our destination,Tim,... More

This trip was amazing! Michelle is a very experienced and professional pilot and gave us lots of information as we flew around beautiful scenery. Landing on the lake was great and seeing bald eagles flying near us was spectacular. If your in Ketchikan book with this company. Thanks Michelle for a great trip😀

You can't go to Alaska and not see the bears. We booked the Anan Creek tour with Michelle, who was very personable and professional. One the big day, the weather was too bad to head out there (Alaska, am I right?), but their second location, Trader's Cove, was clear. While there are no Grizzlies on Trader's Cove, they assured us... More
