Six of us took Michelle’s flight around Ketchikan. We landed on a lake way out in the wilderness. Her narration was awesome. We all came away thinking it was a highlight of our Alaska trip.

You must book with Michelle who takes you on a spectacular flight topped off with a stop in the middle of a lake for the most beautiful scenery anywhere. Worth every penny!

You should probably ask Island Wings directly. I would think it would be difficult, but if she can do it I highly recommend this trip. My spouse and I had an awesome time.
