We did two fly out fishing trips and all went well. The flights are done very well-even with dense fog. We even saw a glacier up close-very close! We enjoyed the trips very... read more

In the past I had 2 good experiences with talon air. This August excursion was horrible. We paid for the bear viewing and fishing, we tone creek trip. My husband asked for a guide, mark, that we had prior. I'll be honest, I wasn't impressed with mark before August. I was right. They had to us we'd have the boat... More

We did two fly out fishing trips and all went well. The flights are done very well-even with dense fog. We even saw a glacier up close-very close! We enjoyed the trips very much and caught many fish. I would recommend this company over any others.

We have traveled to Alaska 5 times and hands down this is the best part of any trip. While some places take you to see bear and some to fish, Talon does both! Does not get any better than this!

My wife and I flew into Crescent Lake with a guide and three other passengers on a bear viewing trip. The day was spectacular and our guide knew where to go to see bears - over 12 bears were observed. He also caught a Silver salmon and cooked it for us on the boat while we watched bears fishing along... More

Our first float plane ride was provided by Talon Air. Our tour group flew from Skilak lake to Crescent Lake . What a FANTASTIC flight. The Harding Ice Field was spectacular, the scenery beautiful and the caribou spotted were majestic. I highly recommend Talon Air!!! Annie H.

Everyone at Talon Air Service is very friendly and professional and our guide Dan was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and we had a fun day fishing with him. Views are amazing! Highly recommend Talon air service & Dan for your next fly out trip in Alaska!

We made two fly outs for salmon. I was impressed with Talon Air's friendliness and competence. From the young man that fitted us with gear to the pilot we had a great experience.

Had the opportunity to fly out with them twice for fishing. The pilots and staff were great. On our return trip our pilot made a few passes over the glacier to give us some great pictures!

Allen of Talon Air Services flew our group of eight from Skilak Lake to Crescent Lake. The flight was wonderful: Allen gave us a tour of the Skilak glacier and lake, first dipping one wing, and then the other, so all passengers got a great view and all the pictures desired. The flight was on time, comfortable, and very scenic.... More

Talon Air delivered the 4 of us after a 20 minute flight to our fishing area and a group of 4 others for a day of bear watching along with our guides. Allen, the pilot and owner was very well known around the area and was (according to my airline pilot husband) a very good, conscientious pilot. (Gave a breathtaking... More
