Booked this tour in the UK as we didn't want to go looking for bears with the masses from the two cruise ships that were in Ketchikan that day. Waited outside our cruise ship and our driver came and told us he would come back for us in an hour as they were playing catch up due to bad weather... More

Alaska seaplane tours does NOT bring you to platform for touristy look outs. If you wanna be mainstream, fine: don't read this review. if you want to see real Alaska, read on....

This was a chance booking, in that the previous day (9/9/13) I was to have done kayaking and then a sea plane flight, but due to over-booking was bumped. I thought I was going to be with one company (Carlin Air?), then ended up with these guys, absolutely LOVED MARTY our pick up person, and JIM our captain. The day... More

Thanks to Ryan and the team at Alaska seaplanes for a wonderful experience. We booked this shore excursion online rather than book on the ship we were on and were very pleased we did. The personal service from collection at the ship terminal to Ryan's knowledge of the bears and the surrounding area was amazing. We spent 1 1/2 hours... More

My wife thought she wouldn't be able to fly in a small seaplane. She not only had a blast but it was one of the highlights of our trip. We went to a nice little inlet over a few mountains and landed on the water to find some bears. We only saw one but watching the salmon going up stream... More

We booked this trip independently from the cruise line and we were so glad we did. From my first contact with Marty by phone from the UK the booking was quick, efficient and easy. Marty picked us up at the ship on a beautiful, warm day with not a cloud in the sky. We were told this was unusual for... More

This trip was an incredible experience and well worth the money. It was the highlight of our entire Alaskan Cruise. The crew (Ryan, the owner/pilot, and his associate who picked us up at the ship) were friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, informative, and FUN! We were confident Ryan was taking us to the best possible spot to see bears if there were... More

The wife really wanted to see the Fjord from a floatplane. Thought about booking through the cruise line but it was a little pricey. Got off the ship and the 1st stand we ran into was the Alaskan Seaplane stand. The company is not affiliated w/a cruise company which allowed them to give us a much better price then the... More
