We did the Misty Fjord flight with Dave. He's fantastic and the scenery is incredible. We were standing on the skiff on Wilson Lake and my 8 year old said "I'm going to remember this for the rest of my life." Quite an experience for her! Our 11 year old was giddy. Dave is very knowledgeable and fun to fly with. Just be sure to ask him to point out particular sights if you're interested in seeing anything you've read about. We were picked up at our hotel 1/2 hr before our trip and dropped off back at the hotel. Very convenient.

We booked a charter with Family air from Ketchikan to Meyers Chuck. Kendra and Dave made the process smooth and easy. All we needed to do was show up and load in the plane. Dave took the extra time to load my wife and I at the office and then shot over to the airport to get our son and away we went. Smooth informational flight took about 30 min and Dave touched us down nice and soft. We had no return scheduled but that was no issue a simple call to Dave the day before and he was there to pick us up and get us back to Ketchikan. We even did a little whale watching along the way. We unloaded and they took us to the hotel. I can't say enough about the service we received from Family air. We'll definetly be using them again next year. Thanks Dave.

Dave and Kendra helped make our July 7 Anan trip super special. Both of them went above and far beyond in every respect. Kendra picked us up on time at our hotel and took us back to the Family Air office. She seems to really enjoy her job and immediately makes you feel like you're part of the "family". The flight to Anan was great. The view from the plane is simply amazing! My wife has problems with motion sickness so she wasn't sure what to expect with the flight but she didn't have any issues. Dave seems to be a terrific pilot and answered all of our questions throughout the entire trip. He also gave us a great walking tour to get to the bear viewing area and back to the plane. We saw several bears, seals, eagles, and so many salmon you could walk across the creek and not get your feet wet. The flight back was a slightly different route to show off more of the picturesque scenery. Since we had checked out of our hotel and were awaiting our flight to Sitka, Dave and Kendra allowed us to keep our bags at their office as we walked around the area. When we returned, Kendra even gave us a ride to the airport ferry. Family Air- great people helping to make your Alaska experience memorable. Thank you both!

Our group of four was taking an Alaskan cruise and after extensive research we booked a seaplane tour with Family Air Tours. It did not disappoint. We got the clear weather we were hoping for and the seaplane tour was the highlight of our cruise. I did not expect the mid flight water landing to be my favorite part, but it showed us how peaceful the area really is. We also felt lucky to see bears near the water. Highly recommended. We would like to thank Dave, our pilot, for such a great flight.

One of the highlights of our holiday, from the moment we first enquired to the day of the flight into Anan, Dave and Kendra were responsive to our enquiries, assisting with securing the 4 passes that we needed. It was great being able to communicate directly with Dave, who is the owner and the pilot, prior to making our booking. The whole experience, including the guide he arranged for our hike to see the bears, was as the title indicates, a fabulous experience. Dave is obviously a well-respected operator and it was a privilege to have been able to experience this amazing part of the world. The personal touch of having Kendra meet us at the cruise ship and meeting her gorgeous dog Rudy was an added bonus. Thank you.
