Glacier Bay Flightseeing & Touring

We are a locally owned and operated company, and we would love to share with you this beautiful country from the view of an airplane. Each passenger will get a personal introduction to their pilot, and everyone will get a window seat! We are happy to accommodate any special requests you may have, or handle any special needs you might have. Your comfort and safety are our first priority.

Some of the more popular areas of flight-seeing or touring are in the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve located west of Juneau, and the many arrays of glaciers and ice fields that surround Juneau, the capital of Alaska.

We can take you on an over flight of this and many other glaciers, from Juneau to the outer coast, or anywhere that you might have pre-determined to see.

Check out our route map and decide what type of tour you would like to experience and please call us if you have any questions!
