Westwind Aviation is awesome! I've flown with a few different pilots and always feel safe. I'm a pretty tough critic as my husband is a pilot. Their customer service is the best and I'd highly recommend them.

Pilot Dan helped us with a step stool and a hand assist when entering the aircraft, quickly allaying our concerns about any difficulties we might have. He asked whether we would like an all-islands tour or to focus on San Juan Island, and he proceeded to give us a wonderful overflight of San Juan Island with lots of narrative on... More

Over the course of a lifetime one may experience only a handful of truly “great” moments, my proposal flight over the San Juan Islands was just that. I contact Westwind Aviation with the concept of proposing to my girlfriend in flight over the San Juan Islands. In my first few communications with Loren at Westwind I was throwing out all... More

There is nothing quite like seeing the San Juan Islands from the air! We were celebrating our foster son's HS graduation and went with Westwind Aviation. Our son got to sit in the front right seat and actually flew the plane for much of the flight, under the skilled watch of owner/pilot Dan. Dan is very knowledgeable of the area... More

I booked the round-trip excursion to Friday Harbor along with whale watching with Western Prince for my wife and sons, ages 17 and 8. The office folks answered all my questions when I called to make the reservation and everything was handled perfectly on the day of the trip. My wife was VERY nervous about flying in a small plane,... More

My husband and I flew to San Juan Island with Westwind Aviation and did the Western Prince Whale Watching Tour -- a package deal (by far this was the best day of our West Coast vacation). We found out about the package from the Western Prince website and called the cell number. I believe they are going to create a... More

We chartered a flight with Westwind last week to fly us from Seattle to Friday Harbor and back. Our whole experience with them was easy, pleasant and more than satisfactory. My husband booked the flight (we also booked a combo whale watching trip with Western Prince through Westwind Aviation) over the phone in minutes and we weren't charged until the... More
