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...

My tour was awesome! The views were spectacular and our pilot, Eric, did a great job at keeping things running smoothly. He pointed out all of the landmarks and bodies of water we passed over. I took a lot of cool photos from the air and also when we landed the plane mid-tour to look for wildlife. Great all-around customer... More

This is was a perfect excursion that we added to our Alaska Cruise! They picked us up and delivered us back to ship as promised. We had a group of 8 and scheduled both of the planes for our trip. They took off and flew tandem for a bit! Both of the pilots Eric and Trevor were great! They were... More

This was an amazing experience. Our pilot, Chris, was awesome! Great guy and pilot. This is a great way to see Tracy Arm Fjord. The entire flight was smooth. The landing in a secluded lake was spectacular. I highly recommend.

What I loved about this company is that they're a small, local, family operated company. It was myself and my two young adult daughters on a southbound Alaskan cruise that wanted to take a float plane tour...and we had the whole plane to ourselves!!! We were sailing on the Radiance of Seas and our last port was Ketchikan, AK and... More

We did the float plane trip with them today and all I can say was they were outstanding. I tend to be a bit critical but these guys gave me nothing to complain about. We loved it. Highly recommend them and the trip! Trevor the pilot was great and Marty did a great job setting us up. Truly was the... More

I did a tour with Alaska Seaplane tours on July 14. I went to the Through Glacier and around Misty Fjords. It was one the best flights I have done in Alaska. The pilot, Trevor was very knowledgable and great to talk to. We landed at the end of the fjord and chilled out for 20 minutes before resuming our... More

What an amazing time. I am local and have been to the Fjords previously both in a seaplane and a ferry trip. Raised in Southeast Alaska I know what beauty is. Words can not describe the untouched beauty of thefjords. You won't go wrong booking your flight with Alaska Seaplane Tours. My nephew was in town and I wanted him... More
