We were driving to Talkeetna and saw the very nice dock area, well manicured and taken care of, and stopped by to look around. We were able to book the one hour McKinley flight and had the most amazing flight. Jason, the pilot, was very personable, knowledgeable and friendly, and the flight was the highlight of this trip to Denali.... More

We just finished our 1 hour float plane tour. We paid extra for a glacier lake landing and thought it was worth the extra cost. We had a cloudy day so Denali wasn't seen, but we were able to see moose, and many glaciers and of course lakes and rivers. This float plane is such an amazing experience, to take... More

My daughter and I took the Wildlife flight along with 2 others in the plane. The pilot was very informative without feeling like he needed to continually talk. We both appreciated that. We did the remote lake landing as well. It was a nice addition. We didn't see too many animals, some bears mostly, and attribute that to it being... More

We happened by this on the way to Talkeetna and pulled in. Due to the immaculate condition of the facilities and grounds, we decided on the spot to book a half hour wildlife viewing tour. The mountain was clouded over so that was not an option. Molly was efficient and polite. It turned out that as there were only two... More

We drove past Alaska Bush Plane on our way down to Talkeetna so came across them purely by chance as opposed to researching them first which is what we usually do but what a find they turned out to be! The weather was really changeable but we could be a bit flexible with our plans and Molly in the office... More
