You hate to say something is life changing, but if this wasn't it certainly will be something we will never forgot. We flew with Al, who was awesome, and you can really tell he loves his job and the people he gets to show his office. We saw 7 bears on our tour and a handful of sheep. The highlight though was seeing 2 very large chucks of the Columbia Glacier crack off and fall into the water. That is something you have to see to believe how sad, yet beautiful it is. Something we will never forget.

Good customer services and flexible. However, things are lack of details. Once landed on the glacier, they should have offered more meaningful activities and/or programs rather than just letting passengers walk around the ice.

Did the "Everything" tour. The staff was very professional and personable. The pilot, Casey, was open to suggestions and made several additional passes at certain points at the request of one of the passengers. The only complaint is that the second landing is not on (illegal) or in front of the Columbia Glacier, but a small glacier nearby.

We flew with Al on a cloudy, rainy day and he made this the highlight of our entire Alaska vacation! Flying along the coastline was peaceful and serene. Seeing the sheer size of the glacier was awe inspiring. Al went "waterfall chasing" with us and it was exhilarating! Saw dall sheep grazing as well. Smooth, gorgeous flight with excellent music thru the headphones! We simply cannot express what an amazing trip this was!

We were booked to do a plane flight with glacier landing in Denali however it was canx due to weather. So we stumbled upon this hidden gem. What an amazing time. The pilot was awesome and explained so much about the area and Columbia glacier. They offered military discounts which is nice to see.
