Desert Splash Adventures is thrilled to be operating in the beautiful Sonoran Desert in Arizona, offering exciting adventures tours!

Desert Splash Adventures is operated by Island Air Express.  Based in Southeast Alaska, Island Air Express is an airline dedicated to moving both passengers and cargo around the Pacific Northwest.  Every Fall we fly one of our planes down to the Valley of the Sun for a season of tours – but not just any plane – an amphibious seaplane, capable of taking off and landing on both water and runways!  We operate the only 9 passenger airplane in Arizona that lands on both pavement and water.

We fly out of the conveniently located Scottsdale Airport, where our executive lounge provides a luxurious space to relax while awaiting your flight.  Upon departure, you will see some of Arizona’s most dramatic, breathtaking landscapes in just under ninety minutes.  Our highly experienced commercial Alaska Bush pilots will provide guests with a “Flying Wild Arizona” experience in a safe and professional manner with every seat offering unobstructed window views.

Our mission is to provide our distinguished guests with an exclusive, truly unique desert adventure experience from our Cessna Caravan Amphibious Seaplane.  In addition to our signature “Apache Air Trail” flightseeing tour, we also offer over a dozen other adventures ranging from private island gourmet brunches to canyoneering in the picturesque rock formations of the Sierra Ancha and Salome National Wilderness Areas.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to having the opportunity to work with you.
