Meet Your Captain

 “Hi, my name is Francois Bakkes and I’d love to show you around one of the most spectacular places you may ever have the good fortune to visit!”

Born and raised in South Africa, I immigrated to the US almost 20 years ago. I came to Alaska early in the spring of 2006 and have not left since. Travel and adventure brought me here where I started flying as a “bush pilot” and then more officially as a medivac pilot. I still fly commercially and also fly float planes to the remote areas around Southeast Alaska. Next to family, boating and flying are my passions!

I hold a US Coast Guard Masters License and with extensive experience  and knowledge in the air and on sea, I will take you on a trip of a lifetime!
