  • Jason the owner and pilot was absolutely great. He?s amazing to talk to and genuinely cares about his clients. He flew my father and I for a 12 day camping and raft trip on the Talchitna River. His wife Chloe also made sure we were taken care of even though we did not stay in the lodge. They?re great people and we will definitely fly with them again.

  • Jason has been our go-to outfitter, bush pilot and expert on all things regarding the Alaskan wilderness. A group of us from Northern California have gone on multiple rafting/fishing trips to some very remote rivers which were only made possible by Jason and his team. Jason?s attention to detail in all aspects of his operations, from the condition of his aircraft to the the quality of the rafts and other gear he provides, is second to none. His lodge is a welcoming oasis surrounded by stunningly beautiful wilderness and the perfect staging point for a wide variety expeditions and adventures. Can?t recommend his outfit highly enough.

  • During the summer of 2020 my sister and I had an Alaska adventure. We did a road trip from Anchorage, Delta Junction, Fairbanks, Denali Park back to Anchorage. Then we flew into Kotzebue. Jason Tucker took us on a tour to the Gates of the Arctic National Park as well as Kobuk Sand Dune National Park. My first time in a small plane. In few minutes I had much confidence in this pilot and I learned so much from Jason sharing his knowledge of Alaska. I love Alaska!
