$99 for an Apache Air Trail Adventure Tour ($399 Value)

In just over an hour, seaplane pilot Carl Zink leads passengers on a high-flying tour above the Arizona landscape, sharing fun and interesting bits of history on sights such as the Tonto Indian Ruins, Weaver's Needle, and the Spires along the way. Flights are operated by Island Air Express and depart from Scottsdale Airport, returning after an exciting water landing on Roosevelt Lake.

Desert Splash Adventures

For more than 20 years, Carl Zink has soared over the mountains, streams, and valleys of his Alaskan home and the vast arid expanses of his adopted Arizona deserts. The third-generation Alaska bush pilot now leads tours five times a day in his Cessna Caravan seaplane, carrying passengers high above sights including the Salt River Canyon, Roosevelt Dam, and Tonto Indian Ruins and providing passengers with thought-provoking facts and history. His nine-passenger plane ensures a window seat for each passenger, and comes equipped with personal headsets so they can each listen to the plane's adorable heartbeat.

Desert Splash Adventures

After learning to fly in college, Arizona native Rob Norberg flew to Alaska, where he spent 20 years traversing mountains, streams, and valleys as a fishing guide and seaplane pilot. But the Arizona climate eventually beckoned him back. Norberg now leads tours five times a day in his Cessna Caravan seaplane, carrying passengers high above sights including the Salt River Canyon, Roosevelt Dam, and Tonto Indian Ruins and providing passengers with thought-provoking facts and history. His nine-passenger plane ensures a window seat for each passenger, and comes equipped with personal headsets so they can each listen to the plane's adorable heartbeat.
