Every Moment is Yours: It's Your Plane Today…
Give yourself an advantage other cruise passengers don't receive: your own private plane to explore the Alaska you want to see, with those you love. For selective individuals who crave truly special travel experiences, this is the excursion to book. We have created spectacular itineraries that will give you lifelong memories of Alaska. Share your interests with them, and our seasoned pilots will know exactly where to take you to make sure your family returns uniquely satisfied.
The Unforgettable Souvenir
Each person takes away his own favorite memory from a flight on an Alaskan float plane. Yours could be the powerful takeoff from the calm waters of Tongass Narrows, within sight of your cruise ship. It might be the freedom of the plane gently banking around the awesome granite cliffs of Misty Fjords. Or perhaps it will be the sight of the white tail of foam created as the plane touches down on a distant lake — the only indication that the plane has now gently re-connected with earth. Remember that whatever your thrill is, we can accommodate that: search for white mountain goats on the rugged mountainsides, gaze at the shadow of your plane dancing on the sea below, or lounge on the pontoons while you dangle your feet in the crystal, cold water of a remote lake and listen to the distant cry of an eagle.
Enjoy the Experience and Knowledge of our Local Pilots
Our professional, experienced pilots feel that they "get to" go to work each day. After all, who would not love to have a 17-million-acre office, with a 450 horsepower office chair? They have respect for the lush Alaskan landscape they call home, and can't wait to share it with you. You will quickly see on your flight why our pilots love their jobs and appreciate people who want to experience Alaska from the air. A two-way headset allows for intimate communication with your pilot, who will not only share the myriad of sights on your trip, but is happy to answer questions.
We Think Families Are Special
You've likely been looking forward to this trip with your family for a long time. We want each moment to be a memory that will be relived and shared many times. Taking your family or a small group in a private plane means the plane is yours — you are in control. Having the pilot take family photos on the pontoons, circling back to view something your daughter pointed out…that's what makes a private trip unforgettable.
Time in the Air: The Real Value
How often will you board a float plane in Alaska? If the answer is "rarely," then you want to make the most of your time aloft. The standard tour of Misty Fjord has a set itinerary that allows for only a certain amount of minutes within the Monument. But when you charter your private plane, you double your time in the rugged heart of the Misty Fjords National Monument. If this flight is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you, we urge you to make the most of your time. This will be too special to rush. Land on a lake and go ashore to explore an isolated Forest Service cabin, circle to view wildlife, take the photo that will become your screen saver… it's worth taking your time.
