Staff of Alaska West Air is just great. They show the best places, have excellent pilots and guides. If you want to have fun in bears watching in Chinnitna Bay or salmon fishing trust Alaska West Air, they will do the best. We still enjoy the smoked salmone we took back to Italy!!!!

Took a flight over the inlet. Brad was great. He definitely took safety very seriously but made sure we all had a good time also.

We have been to Alaska many times and we always go on a excursion with Alaska West Airlines. We usually go to Wolverine Creek and we just love it. The guides are all very friendly and helpful. Tony and Murch are two of our favorites. The bear viewing is awesome and the fishing is always hot. The pilots are very... More

We went out to Crescent Lake as well as Kustatan River on two separate flyouts, both adventures were awesome thanks to our pilots, Nate and Tom, and especially thanks to our guide, Doug, on both occasions! Doug knows the areas and surroundings, and Doug knows FISH!! Nice guy, patient, helpful and fun. He really made our day at Crescent Lake... More

Arrived and was greeted by staff that helped get gear and off to the plane. We had 8 fishermen and two guides. Both were very attentive. Not sure where we went but it was not the original lake I had been told on the phone. Was not a problem. We arrived and they took the first four out and came... More

Best day of our 9-day trip to Alaska. Pay the money and you won't regret it. Doug was a terrific pilot--kept pointing out bears and moose from the air on the way there and back, and took us up close and personal to a glacier. Taking off and landing was smooth as can be, and quite a thrill for my... More

We booked a fly in fishing trip with Alaska West Air. We arrived at their offices and were greeted by their staff. We then met our guide, Nick. He told us that since all of our group was there that we would be the first plane out and therefore get the best fishing spot. We boarded the plane and were... More
