I've posted a positive review under Promech Air's name regarding a combination float/fly trip. Many companies make trips to Misty Fjords. I found Promech to be a really quality provider. Feel free to look at review under their business.

Highly recommend Island Wings. Full 2 hours with 1/2 hour stop on shore of wilderness lake able to eat wild berries. Michelle is the only pilot and she flies year round not just during cruise season. No rushed feeling with this very experienced pilot. FREE DVD and map with better rate than cruise line. You will not regret!!!

Took a floatplane ride and it is the only way to see this magnificent site. Landed on lake and could get out an drink in the sights and quiet. Spend the dough you will be blown away.

We took this excursion on a beautiful, sunny day. Our tour guide on the boat was very informative. Saw a lot of eagles and other wildlife. Loved it!

We happened to take this excursion on the most beautiful, sunny day in Ketichan. We took the boat trip. We enjoyed the tour guide on board. She kept us very informed the entire trip. The scenery was beautiful. We saw bald eagles and harbor seals. One eagle we saw was close in its nest. It's great to see nature so... More

Took a floatplane adventure tour above and around the Misty Fjords. I encourage everyone to do this. It will cost you money but it is worth every penny. The floatplane we took lands on the water midflight and you get off onto a floating dock to appreciate all the beauty around you. It is absolutely beautiful.

My wife and I took this excursion today out of Ketchikan, Alaska. The catamaran was very comfortable, the staff very attentive, and the captain on his game. We were speechless with the beauty of Misty Fjords and this is an excellent way to view it up close and personal. Way to go Allen!

We saw from a floatplane -- just beautiful. Plus, we saw bears during our landing (a mama + 3 cubs), quietly eating grass. A highlight of our trip!

We went on a tour with Allen Marine Tours to Misty Fiords which was excellent. The Naturalist on board the boat was very knowledgeable about the animals and history of the area. She pointed out many interesting animals, lichen, rocks, waterfalls along the way. The Fiords were clear the day we were there which is the exception to the rule... More

We loved seeing the Misty Fjords by seaplane. I like to think that is the best way to see them, but they would surely be beautiful from a boat as well.
