You’ll feel the power of the Dehavilland aircraft as you lift off the ocean with your pilot guide in the cockpit. State of the art headphones allow you to enjoy this fully narrated tour by air as you gently glide over Tongass Narrows and into the majestic mountain ranges that make this part of the earth so unique.
Southeast Alaska is a vast wilderness landscape, with Remote Island logging camps, secluded mining towns, high altitude lakes, and native communities throughout. It is for this reason the float plane has become the most widely used and safest passenger transportation. It is the true workhorse of Alaska. Your 22-minute flight to George Inlet Lodge will bring you over the mountains to the far uninhabited side of Revillagigedo Island. You will crest breathtaking peaks where the keen viewer may see mountain goats resting on crisp snow or black bears foraging for fresh berries.
Once the plane gently touches down on the waters of George Inlet Fjord, it will glide to a stop at the dock of the lodge, where your host will be awaiting. Have your cameras ready for an unobstructed photo opportunity of your float plane lifting off with the splendid Tongass National Forest as its backdrop!
Your meal will feature a fresh romaine salad, topped with mandarin oranges and tossed in homemade oriental dressing. Steaming hot Dungeness Crab paired with clarified butter follow as the main course. Savor this Alaskan delicacy that is prized for its sweet and tender meat but save room for dessert. Rich, smooth cheesecake smothered in Alaskan blueberries will be a perfect ending to this world class meal!

Neets Bay Bear Watch by Floatplane
This was an amazing tour! We were picked up from our cruise ship in a bus and taken to the floatplane dock. The floatplane pilot was very professional and pointed out all the interesting view points along the way. On arrival to Neets Bay our guide walked us along a short track to the bear hide, where we sat and waited for the bears to come. There were plenty of eagles flying around and the salmon were swimming upstream but not a bear in sight! Everyone was very patient and just as we were about to leave a black bear appeared! It was a fair distance away however I was very happy to say I saw a bear. The floatplane pilot took us back a different way so we were able to see more of the beautiful landscape.
Neets Bay Bear Watch Tour
Great experience. We took a float plane to Neets Bay to a salmon hatchery. There were plenty of Bald Eagles to see and we got to see a Black Bear within about 25'-30' of us. S/he wasn't bothered by us and did some fishing before ambling off into the forest. The scenery was spectacular and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Our pilot was Mike O'Brien and our trail guide was Joshua. Both were great hosts and had a lot of knowledge. I recommend this tour.
Fabulous flight with Larry! Incredible views and lots of laughs. Loved every minute of our tour from take off to landing!
