Travel With Alaska Seaplanes From Juneau
The Alaska Seaplanes flight schedule is seasonal, with entire quarters planned out in advance. The flights are organized by destination, with most of them leaving from Juneau. Some of the destinations include Skagway, which hosts the Buckwheat Ski Classic as well as some of the best dog sledding in the state. Hoonah, a city on Chichagof Island, is home to the largest Tlingit settlement in Alaska and is another option on the roster. There’s also Haines, which contains the Haines Brewing Company, and the famous Alaska Bald Eagle Festival.
Alaska Seaplanes departs from Juneau International Airport, which is about a 15-minute drive from Silverbow Inn.
Take an Adventure Tour
Alaska Seaplane offers two bear viewing tours that take place in two different locations. The first, the Pack Creek Grizzly Bear Viewing Seaplane Adventure, can actually be booked through Silverbow Inn. This adventure takes a total of eight hours. It starts with a 25-minute plane ride to Admiralty Island National Monument, followed by five to six hours of grizzly bear viewing time. There is a maximum of five participants in every tour, which means you’ll get more one-on-one time with the guide. The trip includes rubber boots, rain gear, a day pack, binoculars, and a healthy lunch with snacks. When you book the excursion through Silverbow Inn, we’ll also throw in a tram pass to get you to and from the plane.
The Waterfall Creek Bear Tour is similar to the Pack Creek, but it takes you to Chichagof Island. This excursion includes a shorter and easier walk and stunning waterfall views. No trip is better or worse than the other, so it entirely depends on your personal preference!
Book a Private Charter
For a one-of-a-kind ride, consider booking a private charter through Alaska Seaplanes. They have a wide variety of aircrafts in their fleet, each with different abilities and capacity. You’re bound to find one that suits your needs. Preview the selection on their website.
