From the first time I contacted Island Wings to arriving back from our floatplane tour the experience was top notch. We went on the bear watching tour to Traitors Cove. Shona was great with the reservations and picking us up, Tim was a great guide and Michelle was a great pilot with a ton of knowledge. I must say my... More

Michelle provided a wonderful flight experience to the Misty Fjords. It was a gorgeous, relaxing flight. The landing on the lake in the mountains was so smooth and a beatiful experience. Our two youngest adult children could not stop talking about the trip. I would highly recommend Michelle and Island Wings when in Ketchikan.

Flying with Michelle in Ketchikan is a highlight of an Alaskan experience. The only word is majestic in describing the sights. Michelle is a seasoned pilot and shows all the beauty of the area while providing key geographical information. I do not think that you can truly enjoy this port without the view from the plane. We landed on an... More

Our one day of sun on our Inside Passage cruise was the day we were in Ketchikan. We had booked the Traitor's Cove tour with Island Wings. Our group was small, just my husband, me, and another passenger traveling on our cruiseship. We were picked up at our ship and the dock was just a short drive away. A few... More

Husband and I booked the Misty Fjords trip independently and, oh wow, were we glad we did. Everything from booking online until stepping off the plane was smooth. Michelle has 30+ yrs experience flying and her passion for the wilds of Alaska is contagious. I am very uneasy with heights but did not even think about that as we skimmed... More

Michelle is amazing!!! We felt completely safe and confident with her as our pilot and guide. She does it all! Even took great photos of us. This is a must do in Ketchikan! She knows everything about this area...my only complaint is I wish we could've stayed all day! If I ever find myself back in Ketchikan I will definitely... More

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
