We had a great time flying to the Taku Lodge, the King Salmon was great. What great views we had from the float plane. Our pilot Wayne was great and would answer questions. Would have given 5 out of 5 except the unusual sides with the meal. Savoury Baked Beans, stewed apples with rasins ? Coleslaw was ok. But this... More

Seaplane, floatplane or bush plane, it makes no difference what you call the airplane, Wings Airways offers glacier-viewing adventures. I signed up for the Taku Lodge Feast and Seaplane Discovery Tour to grasp the magnitude and beauty of the Juneau Icefields. This 3-hour adventure begins and ends in downtown Juneau's waterfront. As we loaded onto the plane, everyone had a... More

What a great experience. Our Wings Airway Pilot was excellent, very professional and knowledgeable. I was lucky and got the front seat. The view was amazing, the sights were beautiful. Dinner at the Taku Lodge was wonderful and the service was excellent. Of course the highlight of the day was the visiting black bear. He spent a great deal of... More

Wings Airways are an amazing business!! They are very well organized when you get to the pier they're at. There are seats for nine(?) passengers, plus one for the pilot, of course. Somehow, someway I ended up in front even though the last one on the plane. That was an experience, not being able to put my feet in certain... More

Of all of the tours and activities we did in Alaska, the Taku Lodge Feast & 5 Glacier Seaplane Discovery was the highlight, The take offs and landings were so smooth, it was difficult to tell when we had become airborne or touched down.

So many people go to Alaska and say they only saw Eagles. They weren't at Taku Lodge, where the fattest, juiciest most delicious salmon in the world, just caught in Taku lake, is bbq'd outside. And the scent isn't lost on the black bears, who come hanging around, kept at a safe distance by the caretakers, and climb up into... More

You arrive at this unbelievable tour by float plane from Juneau. The scenery along the way is right out of a brochure. Miles and miles of glaciers, mountains with snow, waterways, simply breathtaking. You arrive at the small lodge with fresh salmon cooking on the grill, along with assorted veggies. Very well staffed, clean, organized, and very informative of the... More

Absolutely great tour. We booked through Princess Cruiseline and were taken by bus to Wings headquarters. We loved the floatplane ride to Taku Lodge. Flew over amazing glaciers and the pilot explained and discussed what we were seeing. When we got to The Lodge which was very picturesque, we had beverages while waiting for our meal and delightful conversations with... More
