Misty Fjords was totally one of the highlights of our trip and I never flew in a small plane. Begin by saying I would go back in a flash and loved flying over the Fjords one of the most beautiful sites. I got to sit in the co-pilots seat because one of the three couples didn't show and I thought... More

iFirst time we ever did a flight gliding plane ride. Was really neat! When we landed in the water, it was so smooth! We saw seals playing on the bank going in and out of the water! Noisy but they give you earplugs that played soothing music. Was a big cloudy and sprinkling but was still very nice.

We did the Misty Fjords Seaplane Adventure with Promech Air as a shore excursion from Ketchikan during our Regent 7 Seas Navigator Alaskan cruise. It was a highlight of our month long trip to Canada/Alaska. My husband is scared of heights and very wary of small planes so he would only agree to go on one flightseeing trip during our... More

Please ignore my rating as we did not go to the Misty Fjords. We were really bummed that our trip was cancelled because of weather. The reason for my review is to recommend that you have a backup plan in case you have the same trouble. It is my understanding that this excursion is cancelled quite often. We ended up... More

During our cruise, we stopped in Ketchikan for a visit. We did book an excursion to Misty Fjords. The seaplane to and from Misty Fjords was breathtaking and thrilling. At Misty Fjords, we did go on a walking tour with our guide. Along the way I seen a baby black bear - of course nobody else did because I pushed... More

My wife went on this one alone due to the cost. But was one of those bucket list things and she really wanted to do this one more than me. She did the boat in seaplane out. This is the way to do it although costs more. She said the boat ride back would have been too much. But was... More

This was one of our best highlights while on our Alaska cruise! Our pilot was the best because it was somewhat cloudy, foggy and rainy the day we went and quite a few of the other airplanes went back to port only after a short while. I don't think it was the pilots that wanted to go back, but maybe... More

This was a fantastic trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Steve was a great pilot and his wife Leslie went above and beyond for us. They were the best of the best.

This is absolutely a must if you are in the area. You can see it by float plane or boat. It is our second largest wilderness area in the US. Waterfalls and steep fjords are throughout the area

We booked our seaplane tour of Misty Fjords through NCL Sun. The seaplane is the only way I would want to experience the beauty of this National Forest! The views are breath-taking, the pilots are awesome - extremely knowledgable with a love for what they do. We landed on one if the most peaceful lakes in the world! BTW, this... More
