My husband and I visited Orcas Island on our summer vacation this past July. This island had been on my "bucket list" for some time, but the logistics of getting there always outweighed the idea of a relaxing vacation. After a long flight from PHL to SEA-TAC, the last thing we wanted to do is drive another 2 hours to... More

Our pilot "Will" took us on an amazing 2 hour air adventure exploring the San Juan Islands an 13,000 ft Mount Baker in the Cascade range. Really really amazing and memorable. If you come to San Juan Island, a flight with Westwind is a must do -and a great value.

Take a scenic flight with Westwind Aviation if you can! We did the 45 minute scenic flight out of Friday Harbor Airport the first morning we were on the island and got a beautiful look at the San Juans from the air. Really gave us an appreciation of the beauty of the islands. Our pilot was Keith who was very... More

Last weekend, my friend surprised me with a fun getaway to the San Juans! Rather than spend hours traveling to Friday Harbor, he contacted Westwind and we were up and away in 35 minutes!! The flight was smooth, the pilots were professional and friendly, and it was such an amazing way to see the city and the Sound! I would... More

The Cessna 172 and our island-born pilot carried my wife and me generally about the three main islands and a few others, including Sucia. We were especially interested in British Camp on the north and American Camp on the south of San Juan Island, and Mr. DeLapp circled over them for us. The views on this clear and sunny day... More
