Looking at finally floating the Kobuk. Been wanting to do this trip for years. I am floating the upper river and taking out above (or at) the village of Kobuk. First thought was a drop off and pick up with Bettle's Air, but looks like about $3500 round trip. Then thought about a scheduled air taxi from Kobuk village back to Fbx. That would have us paying about $1500 for the bush plane drop, and a few hundred bucks on the scheduled return. Can't find out who does the Kobuk village to Fbx air taxi. I know Bering Air does the trip from Kobuk village to Kotz, but not sure who goes between Fbx and Kobuk. Any ideas? Also, anyone know of a bush plane option that would take us from Fbx directly to the Kobuk? We will need a float plane (lake) drop off with 800# payload. If so, that would save us the trouble from going up to Bettles in the first place. Especially since we are now considering a return flight directly to Fbx from the village of Kobuk. Trying to find sound logistics that won't break the bank. I appreciate any comment as always.
