The same group of us went on another Alaskan fly in hunt in 2015. We posted the review in August 2014 titled "Top Notch Service". If I could figure out how to remove the review from 2014 and drop this rating to "0" stars, I would. The lady's that work for them are still wonderful (Molly and another lady that... More

Great welcome in a superbly maintained office area. From the moment you come in to the landing you feel that safety is taken to the upmost level. Everyone and every belonging are carefully weighed. We were a group of 11 going to Schneider lake and the rides were very smooth. We wish the pilot would have been more talkative and... More

We ((4) 30-something adults) signed up for the Explore Denali 1.2, but were unable to do it due to weather. We ended up doing the 1.0 exploration plus the additional Glacier Lake Landing. I am giving this a 4 because it was a nice smooth ride for the most part and it was a really beautiful ride. However, we felt... More

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
