Our original flight was cancelled due to weather so we didn't have time for the hiking portion of our trip. The difference was refunded. We were moved to a later scenic flight was very enjoyable and offered wonderful views of the mountains. The pilot, Peter, was informative and had a lot of experience flying the route. The cruise offered great views in the sound and they did a good job of commentating on what were seeing. Overall, it was an excellent experience.
