How do you describe something that takes your words away and leaves you speechless? This was meant to be a Floatplane and Alaskan Bear excursion. We definitely saw the floatplane. :) If you ever read my reviews you know that heights aren't my favorite thing - so the idea of being in a small aircraft way up high in the... More

After several rainy ports we finally arrived in sunny Kethcikan. Our flight the previous day in Skgway had been cancelled and they referred us to Taquan Air. I was able to book an online web special and for the 6 of us it was a great savings. It was very easy to get the shuttle from the cruise ship, and... More

It was our first trip to the Misty Fjords and we selected Taquan Air due to their coupon in the Tour Saver book. We booked 9 months in advance and were able to fly for a 2 for 1 rate! The entire staff was very professional--from the guide who picked us up at the cruise dock to the workers in... More

What a great experience. I was so happy that I overcame my fears of flying in the small plane and enjoyed the trip. It was the best travel experiences of my life. Our pilot was great.

Roger, former crop duster from Nebraska, was a wonderful pilot/guide. We enjoyed best views, wonderful landing on lake, as well as interesting history & geology of area.

I booked the the Alaska Bear Adventure on a Holland America cruise ship. They used this company. Everything was excellent. I do believe that the company is very safety conscious, the pilot was outstanding. The aircraft was an older plane: however, it appeared to be well maintained. It did have updated electronic displays on the dashboard, etc. The plane seats... More

My wife, myself plus another couple tried to book a trip to Anan a few months in advance of our trip this past July. Every float plane company we called said that we were too late to book as there are only 60 visitor permits for this park issued for each day. All except one company and one person. A... More

Amazing experience where we circled around the island. Sure it was a little rainy but the plane was safe and our pilot couldn't have made us feel more secure and comfortable. For someone with a fear of planes, this was extremely pleasant and it really helped that they took so many precautions and were so patient with myself. Great ride.

We booked a wonderful trip from when we got off the ship. Sea plane that took us to the Majestic Forge. We ended up saving $200 not using the cruise line. However, this is the same agency that the cruise line uses. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Pilot was very professional. Well worth the time and money.
