Ellison Air

Ellison Air has always been to provide the best tours and personal service available. We are the only sea plane operation in Anchorage that strictly specializes in Air Tours and we feel this allows us to offer a superior product. Our aircraft was specifically chosen with safety, comfort and optimum viewing in mind. Noise reducing headsets with intercom are provided to each passenger allowing narration and communication throughout each flight. As we do not have to haul gas, propane, trash, fish or game inside our aircraft as other operators do; our plane is always clean, neat and free of smells. Our pilots are extremely experienced and knowledgeable with more than 45 years of living in Alaska and 30 plus years flying in Alaska. At Ellison Air we truly enjoy sharing Alaska with others our love and pride of Alaska is evident in each and every tour we conduct.
