Thanks Bolas & Selbbub78,

I appreciate the replys...guess I should have
better explained the situation. The wife and
I are taking a cruise and two of our ports of
call are Juneau & Skagway. Hence different
cities or different time periods won't work.

Dude, Call the airport FBO at Skagway, ask for a name of a local pilot(s) who might help get you in the air. Learn how to file your own NOTAM. Not hard, Flight Service will walk you through it. Hint, file a landing area more than five miles from the airport-it makes things much simpler paperwork wise especially if the airport has commercial traffic, or what the hell go for the whole enchilada and be your own one man airshow and land at the airport, it's Alaska, its like a whole 'nother country. When I jumped the fifty states with my wife we found a lot of cool ways to score jumps. Filing your own NOTAM is intimidating at first but after you do it once, no sweat. Course you could go the outlaw route, saves paperwork and adds that certain thrill to the whole adventure. Hope you have a ball!

All you need is a spot on The Klondike Highway or the Chilkoot Trail, where theres a will theres a way. We flew down a driveway and landed in a back yard in Fort Yukon. Whatever. Heck land back on the ship as its sailing away, that will make the cruise more exciting!

When in Skagway, see if Mike Dobson is around. We flew a few loads a few years ago out in Dyea over the flats. Incredible views.....



Okay, I know that my reply is like 1,5 years late =P, but did you mean you actually had a couple of loads jump out over Dyea flats? Man, I wish I had seen that! Didn't notice any skydivers there during 2006 season...
