We saw that the weather was going to be clear for the several days that we were in Talkeetna (late August '16) and booked a flight-seeing tour with this company. The weather was probably as good as could be hoped for-- blue skies, few clouds, little to no wind, temperatures in the upper 60's. We departed at noon, with the... More

While the flight was safe and we did see what was expected, we were really disappointed overall. When I asked to use the bathroom they explained their bathroom was out of service and I could use the woods behind the fuel truck filling up - um, okay. Next they strongly suggested I leave a tip on the $840 price tag... More

Unfortunately, this was the one cloudy and overcast day on our trip to Denali. Would have been so much better on a clear day! That being said, it wasn't the fault of this company and they did a good job and we had a positive experience. It is very easy to find - just turn right onto the road to... More

We booked a Denali flight and requested a pick-up from Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge in top Aug 2016. On that day, the flight has to be cancelled for bad weather but they still arrived the hotel in 5 minutes before pick-up time and asked us in person whether do we want to change the flight or we can just cancel it....

I had taken a family summer trip for a half hour seaplane with lake landing. The pilot had a terrible and rude attitude and was not willing to provide any conversation. He seemed to be more of the lets get it over with attitude. In addition he also seemed to be a bit racist (we are Indians) and insulting to... More

We really enjoyed our flight with Alaska Bush Float plane service. Although Denali was clouded in, the pilot still took us as close as he could. He narrated the whole time and pointed out neat glaciers and lots of wildlife. His driving was smooth and we didn't feel motion sick at all! The tour lasted a full hour which was... More

What a beautiful excursion, Elbert and Jason are real professionals. If you want an experience of a lifetime, don't pass up this opportunity to see the magnificent Alaskan mountain range and Denali, up close.

I am a terrible flier. As in PETRIFIED. Somehow, though, this clean, well kept little dock caught my eye as my husband and I drove into Talkeetna for one overnight. Despite my fear, I thought about it all night and when we pulled out the following afternoon, there it was, calling to me. I would like to say that I... More

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
