Prince William Sound Flightseeing

Soar above the blue crevassed face of a 3,000 ft. thick glacier and view some of Alaska’s most rugged mountain peaks on this 2 ½  to 3 hour Prince William Sound flightseeing tour from Anchorage with Rust’s Flying Service. This is our pilots' favorite trip.

Pristine Prince William Sound is a magnificent region with 15,000 square miles of fjords and inlets, scores of tidewater glaciers and is a rich cold water marine life habitat.


Flight Route:  Depart from Lake Hood, the world’s largest and busiest floatplane base, and fly east over the Chugach Mountain Range, “hanging” glaciers and alpine valleys into another world: Prince William Sound.  On the extended tour, include Columbia Glacier, Prince William Sound's largest tidewater glacier and possibly a swing by Glacier Island to view sea lions sunning themselves on the rocky coastline.  Make a photo stop landing at a secluded cove before returning to Anchorage.  Flight route can vary according to weather; your pilot will fly lthe best route for the best flightseeing depending on the conditions on your day of flight.
