As it was raining buckets, we did not get to take this trip. They were in contact with us all morning, but the weather just kept getting worse. I was glad they thought enough of us to cancel the trip rather than taking us out and having us be disappointed.

Michelle Masden, owner, pilot and a true inspiration provided us with the most amazing experience of our Alaskan tour. From the moment we booked our Traitors Cove Bear Watch tour, Michelle and her team were outstanding. Michelle pilots a 6 seater De Havilland Beaver floatplane which is a credit to her, beautifully presented and maintained and perfectly piloted. Our journey... More

We booked a seaplane tour of the Misty Fjords and Tongass National Forest through Island Wings, based on Trip Advisor reviews. We did not book through our cruise ship and are so glad we made this choice. We had one of the few clear and sunny days in Ketchikan, which was a bonus. The Island Wings van picked us up... More

From start to finish - a totally great experience. Our pilot, Michelle was the best. With over 30 years of flying experience, Michelle is great to fly with. Provides great commentary and history as you fly along. Lands on a lake where you get to step ashore and Michelle transforms from pilot to photographer! No need to tell her "just... More

Great experience. Only way to really see this part of Alaska outside of the towns and cities. No roads, no buildings, no people. Michelle, owner and pilot, took our group to a lake at abut 1500 above sea level, we walked around and picked and ate wild blue berries. We left exactly on time and got back on time. Fun... More

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
