Jim was our pilot. He was so knowledgeable. We had an awesome trip. We felt very secure flying with him.

If you can only choose one flight seeing excursion make it the "Annan Creek tour". Carlin air provided a fantastic and friendly service and the memory of this day will stay with me for ever. The beautiful scenery, the walk through the rain forest and the close proximity to the bears and nature was the absolute highlight of my wonderful... More

Funny to read the remark from "Eire Traveler_9". Flying in a float plane was on my Dad's Bucket list and we also had an amazing Day with "Luke". My Dad is 85 and deals with multiple health issues. I reserved with Laura about 9 months ago and explained my concerns and she reassured me that if Dad could walk a... More

If you have a bucket list this should be on it! One incredible view after another! The lakes, the mountains, the fjords, the inlets - close up and personal and vistas to the horizon and beyond. Luke (the pilot) shared geographical and local information as we soared. The flight was smooth, the landing and take off on the lake exhilarating... More

our plans were to do a remote fly in fishing trip to Mcdonald lake in the tongass national forest. Upon securing the cabin, Laura at carlin air was exceptional at helping us with all our travel and gear needs! The correspondence with Laura was better than fantastic. I would like to personally thank Laura,Jeff and John for making our fishing... More

A few months ago we booked a cruise on Carnival that was supposed to stop in Ketchikan. We wanted to go see the bears at Anan and Laura at Carlin Air was very helpful and prompt in getting us booked. I opened an email today for Carnival saying our itinerary had changed and we were no longer stopping in Ketchikan.... More

I made arrangements through the internet for the Misty Fjord. Laura at Carlin Air was exceptional with her friendliness and responsiveness. My family of 5 finally arrived to Ketchikan via a Royal Caribbean cruise ship in August. We had booked a 11:30 am tour so we had a chance to take the city's free shuttle to do some sightseeing in...

I'm a big travel buff, and I spend most of my trips searching for the wild places that showcase whatever makes the locale I'm in special. After deciding to head to Ketchikan, I began looking for someone to take us around the Misty Fjords National Monument. If you travel to Alaska, this is one of those things that you must... More

Ketchikan and the Misty Fjords was our first port of call on our Island Princess Sea and Land tour. I had found Carlin Air on internet and had liked what Jeff Carlin was all about and made reservations. Amazing insight! I had also stated my wife's excitement about flying in a small (BUSH) plane and requested the co-pilot seat which... More

We did a cruise ship excursion with Pilot Jeff Carlin to see the Misty Fjords. We were a party of 4 adults and one child. None of us had ever been in a float plane, and we weren't sure exactly what to expect. We had a great day! Our transportation was easy to and from the departure location. Jeff was... More
