It was a nice calm day, like no wind at all so it went smoothly. We did a shorter flight. Our favorite thing was seeing a Momma black bear with her 2 baby cubs. Only bad thing was we were higher than I wish we...More

What an amazing excursion! The captain and employee was sweet/ friendly. Everything was clean and professional. Once we were in the air... it was magic. That is the best way to see the interior and the mountain. Our pilot was great. I told him that...More

Absolutely breathtaking views of the scenery, Denali, and the surrounding mountains. We love the lake landing, just us and a few swans, and since this was our first float plane landing, the takeoffs and landings were really cool. Booking was a breeze, everyone was very...More

They sold me on flying low and being able to see lots of wildlife close up . . . We flew at about 500 - 650 feet above the grounds so any wildlife you see is minimum 600 fret away, more like 1000 feet away,...More

What an experience to see Alaska from the sky. Seeing glaciers and the back country from the air is amazing. I would definitely recommend Alaska Bush when you're in Talkeetna. It's something you'll remember the rest of your life. Don't forget your camera!

The flight was more then anticipated, you don't experience Alaska unless you fly and they are a great company to fly with. Saw lots of wildlife, glaciers and much more. Everyone was great to work with, you can tell when someone truly enjoys what they...More

We saw that the weather was going to be clear for the several days that we were in Talkeetna (late August '16) and booked a flight-seeing tour with this company. The weather was probably as good as could be hoped for-- blue skies, few clouds,...More
