Flight and cruise

Flight was awesome our pilot Angus was lovely and the cruise was great. Be prepared to be patient our trip was delayed several times due to weather and cloud cover, but was worth the wait!

A wonderful experience

Absolutely stunning views that would be impossible in any other way. Cruise on the Sound was very enjoyable with many photo opportunities. Having clear, sunny weather added to the experience
