What is V.I.P. Services?

Destination Alaska V.I.P. Services is proud to offer a full array of support services and adventure packages. Each year we work with dozens of managers, owners, travel agents, and operators providing the best floatplane, charter vessel, and shuttle services to their guests while visiting southcentral Alaska.  

In addition to our Homer, Alaska location, our V.I.P. outpost (the M/V Peregrine) is located on the outer coast in the Kenai Fjords near the McCarty Glacier.  A cruise around Alaska would not be complete without a visit to this magnificent National Park. Snowcapped mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, world-class fishing, and wildlife are only a few of the experiences waiting for you along the wild outer coast of the Kenai Peninsula. The Fjords has many protected bays and coves to choose from and is a spectacular glacier location for vessels traveling from Prince William Sound and Seward down to Kodiak or Geographic Harbor.  Destination Alaska Adventure Co. has put together the ultimate outpost experience for your yacht right in the heart of this incredible place. Our vessel, the M/V Peregrine, is known as “Adventure Headquarters” and is anchored in the perfect place to spend several days exploring and relaxing. She is loaded with equipment and toys and provides multiple guided expeditions for you to choose from. As our V.I.P. guest, you will have exclusive access to expert guides, jet skis, float planes, state of the art fishing vessels, kayaks, and 8x8 amphibious Argos.  Wake up each day and choose from the following activities: 

  • Guided Glacier Jet Ski Tours

VIP Planes

When Destination Alaska went looking for the best airplanes for our guests, the decision was simple.  We needed safety, reliability, comfort, and speed.  That's why we invested millions of dollars to purchase a nearly all Turbo fleet of aircraft.  Our DHC-3T de Havilland  Otter floatplanes, along with two DHC-2T MK III de Havilland Beavers on wheels were the best choices.  Not to be left out, our Cessna 206 is an incredible aircraft that gets the job done for small groups.  Here are some of the statistics for each plane:

  • DHC-3T Otter - 1000 H.P. - Floatplane - 10 pax or 2200 lb load
  • DHC-2T MK III - 750 H.P. - 35" Bushwheels - 9 pax or 1250 lb load
  • Cessna 206G - 300 H.P. - Aerocet Floats - 5 pax or 900 lbs

These aircraft are true bushplanes designed and built for short take of and landings, and transporting people and heavy loads of supplies and equipment throughout Alaska.  Destination Alaska invites you to ride along as we soar above glaciers, rocky coastlines, volcanoes, and snowcapped mountains across Cook Inlet and around the Kenai Peninsula.  While in the air, you’ll have the opportunity to see moose, black bears, mountain goats, whales, and other wildlife that call Kachemak Bay and the Kenai mountains home.  Climb aboard and see Alaska by air!

VIP Glacier Flightsees & Ring of Fire Tour

Kachemak Bay & McCarty Glacier Tour

Climb aboard our Cessna 206 or de Havilland Otter for an incredible flight right from your yacht.  From above the McCarty Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park and the turquoise waters of Kachemak Bay, the views are simply stunning and will be sure to take your breath away!  In the duration of the 2-hour flight, you will have the opportunity to see blue-ice glaciers, snowfields, thunderous waterfalls, and alpine lakes. Experience Alaska by air with Destination Alaska!

Ring of Fire Volcano Tour

When you visit Homer and the Kenai Fjords, you will see distant vistas of Alaska’s volcanoes, glaciers, and waterfalls.  Imagine soaring directly over these breathtaking volcanos and landscapes in a genuine Alaska bush plane.  We are proud to offer you an amazing experience in our Cessna 206 floatplane, DHC-2 bushplane, or DHC-3 floatplane.  After a short safety brief, you’ll climb aboard and take off on an extraordinary 3 - 3.5 hour trip across Cook Inlet to see Ring of Fire volcanoes Mt Redoubt, Mt Iliamna, Mt Augustine, and Mt Douglas. Our pilots are trained to get you up close for those incredible pictures that can only be taken from a bush plane.

"My husband and I flew with Northwind Aviation last summer and it was the highlight of our stay in Homer.  Their pilot took us through the mountains and right up over the glacier to the outer coast.  We saw black bears, mountain goats, and a huge waterfall!  Thank you, Northwind!"   Jennifer M.   Portland, OR.
