Credits make it interesting

One great thing about using credits is that you can use them to change up the CoastView content of routes you often fly. CoastView draws from 10s of thousands of possible coastal images and points of interest. Each time you travel you can download a different selection. So no two trips are the same; each time you'll see and learn about different places along your way. 

So if you share the app (or specific routes) with friends, you can earn credits. 10 credits will get you a free trip. Use the credits to get a different selection of images and information each time you fly between Seattle and Anchorage - or any other frequently flown route.

5 Things to Bring on Your Cruise to Alaska (that you already own)

What makes a perfect vacation? If you're like me, you want memorable experiences, fun and relaxation, and a good friend to share it with. You want to make every moment count.

To me, making every moment count during a vacation means paying attention to the things I lack at home - the sounds, smells, and sights that are different from the place I live.

So if you haven't been to Alaska before, here's a short list of things to pay attention to. Don't just experience Alaska with your eyes, use your whole body to build a memory that you can take home with you.

Our best photography tip? Use a helicopter.

One question we hear a lot is, "How did you get the amazing photos you will use in the CoastView app?"

That's a great question, and the answer is a story we like to share.

The photos are from a mapping project called ShoreZone.  ShoreZone was developed back in the early 1980s in Canada as a tool to help the local British Columbia government respond to offshore oil spills. The ShoreZone scientists created a system to describe sections of the coast - for example, whether it's sandy or rocky, and what kinds of plants grow there. And to help them map these features, the scientists took to low-flying planes and helicopters to shoot close-up pictures of the coast.
