    • Linda – The plane ride was spectacular (and calm) and no need to worry about safety. The pilots all have Alaskan-bush flying experience and years of flying seaplanes. They supply you with coolers with water/soft drinks of your choice as well as snorkeling equipment. If you do the 1/2 day excursion, I would recommend eating prior to your trip and if you decide to the full day trip, you may pack a lunch to put in the coolers provided. It’s a trip I would recommend to everyone!
