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

Jason and Molly of AK Bush float plane were so accommodating to me and our family of four that it was truly one of the best experiences of our entire trip!! We saw Mt. McKinley and the surrounding Talkeetna mountains, glaciers and wildlife. I had researched other flight seeing trips and Jason was definitely the best choice for our family.... 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

Both my dad and I have experience flying single engine planes, and I can tell you that in every sense this was a spectacular tour. Easily the highlight of the entire AK trip. We opted for the longer tour of McKinley with the remote lake landing and loved every second of it. Flying so close to base camp and getting... More

My experience with Alaska Bush Float Plane Service was truly incredible! Our pilot, Jason, took us deep into the Alaska Range, where we were able to view Mount McKinley, Mount Hunter, and Mount Foraker up close. The mountains are truly majestic and awe-inspiring when viewed from the air - a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I also loved seeing the glaciers and mountain... More

The one hour flight to Mt. McKinley was truly an amazing adventure. We also picked the perfect day - not a cloud in the sky. It is amazing how different the mountains and glaciers look when flying between the mountain peaks. It was also interesting to look at the flat terrain on the way to the mountains and see various...
