Gyrfalcon Guest Reviews

March 2024

The week was fantastic! In every way. The crew was wonderful— perfect mix of friendly but not inserting themselves too much into our private time. GREAT food— really some of the best ever! Great sports and patience to let us try everything! The destinations were well curated. And the tiny hiccups handled with grace. The tender problem was handled so well we hardly knew of the hard work it took to get a replacement. The pickup and drop off change was handled so well. We felt cared for like kings and queens. We would definitely choose the water taxi and ground taxi services you all provided as they were top notch. I really cannot think of anything we would criticize. We’d love to make the trip again! Kudos to all.
With much gratitude, Laurel with Craig, Steven, Hayley, David, Reed, Kerry Anna , Brandt, Corrie and Sam!!
