Simply one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life. YOU MUST DO THIS! Capt. AL was fantastic, his knowledge and stories were fantastic and his skill as a pilot was beyond spectacular.

John Harmer I will do this again.

Better than I thought.

This was a gift from my boy friend. When I was told that we were getting up at 5am I was upset with him taking me out to do anything at that time of day. I am here to tell you it was fantastic. The views were amazing. I forgot how pretty the sunrise can be and our pilot was super talented. I had a great time, Better than I had expected

Kayla Rementer How am I going to top this??
