I had prebooked this tour (Bear watch) thru advice on a coworker. I had initially planned on doing similar trip thru cruiseline but decided on this trip after talking my coworker. Met Marty downtown Ketchikan along with 4 others (2 couples). As he drove us back to where plane was he explained a little bit about the town. After arriving... More

Van met us at pier and drove us to plane, explaining a little about town on the way. We were a group of 6 on this tour. Eric was our captain today. Only complaint was - he never told us to put on our headsets and he was commenting on the way to the lake and we never knew this.... More

We had pre-booked this excursion directly with this outfit. They were ready for us when we pulled into port. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. My concern had been the make up of our group, 3 generations, ranging from 84 to 17, and one D1 football player. They made sure we had the plane to ourselves and that my son had... More

We had pre-booked a tour to Traitor´s Cove - there is a bear viewing platform - with another company. Due to a technical problem this flight could not take place and we were suggested to do the "same", but just to Neets Bay, with RDM/ Alaska Seaplane Tours. It resulted that this other tour was much shorter (about 2 hours... More

Beautiful day in Ketchikan so we booked a float plane tour of Misty Fjord National Monument. Arrived by cruise ship and booked a tour from the dock area Visitors Center. Very easy, friendly service. Transportation driver and the pilot (Trevor) were friendly and talkative. Beautiful scenery, we saw mt. goats, seals, waterfalls, forests, bogs. The microphones didn't work precisely, but... More

Just two of us and he pilot. We got all the stories of the local area. Flew across forest and river. Landed on a lake and sailed to shore, where we got out. We could see salmon bones on the shore which had been recently eaten by bears... I shudder to think what would have happened had a bear appeared.... More

Flying over this area is spectacular and a real "must do" activity when you visit. The entire staff is fun and interesting. Lots of knowledge to share about all of the beautiful and amazing things you see. The views of the mountains, forests, lakes, streams, waterfalls and sea were just incredible. We even happened to see porpoises below. I flew... More

Had a beautiful day to fly. I have always wanted to fly on seaplane and Alaska seemed to be a great place to go. We were picked up from our ship and driven to their base. Be sure to give them your cell phone number. It helps when trying to meet them. Flight was smooth and stable. We flew through... More

We were so fortunate to have a clear day for this tour. We went beyond the misty fjords in effort to see bears. We were able to see one, but it was far away and difficult to get pictures of. Our pilot was wonderful. He pointed out landmarks as we flew over, and told interesting stories. We booked directly through... More

My friend and I spent a week in Alaska, and when traveling through Ketchikan we were told we couldn't leave without flying in a seaplane. We booked the two hour tour and can honestly say this is one the most memorable excursions I've experienced throughout my travels, and would do it all over again. Eric, our pilot, was friendly and...
