We booked through the cruise ship and ended up with Taquan. It was our first sea plane experience and we loved it. I thought the music and information they had going on the headset was great, the pilot was very nice and informative and pointed out little details to us like the sea lions and potential wild life and the...

We had booked this excursion through our cruise and it certainly came in as advertised. The people there were extremely helpful and considerate, especially when it came to our pilot friend being given the ''co-pilot'' seat. A treat for him and great scenery for everyone.

Our Cruise Line chose Taquan Air for our Misty Fjords float plane excursion. The Misty Fjords were beautiful, and our pilot did get us there and back safely. However, our pilot, Mike, was the most uninterested, disengaged, least helpful guide we had our entire trip. His total lack of engagement with our party nearly ruined the beautiful scenery.

We booked our trip (Private Floatplane Experience - Misty Fiords) through Holland America Cruise Line. I can't begin to describe how wonderful the experience was. The staff at terminal were very friendly. Our pilot, Brent, was very knowledgeable of the area and took us on a tour of where he liked to go sight seeing. He answered all of our... More

You can fly... During more than an hour you can see beautiful places... Canions... glaciers... When the plane take off in a lake you can feel the wind on your faces... You must do it once at life.

Our Taquan Air Tour was one of the highlights of our time in Alaska. Beautifully well maintained planes, a wonderfully friendly pilot Roger and the... More

This tour actually was our back-up choice, and I have to say I was very pleased. The views of practically virgin forest and mountains were breathtaking. Taking a ride in a piece of history was also fantastic. The DeHavilland Beaver is the workhorse of the Pacific Northwest, and the opportunity to take the tour in this plane was great. We... More
