Got off the ship without plans. Talked to Marty in the visitor center and booked a trip to Misty Fjord. We had a memorable trip with my wife and I as the only passengers in a Cessna 185 seaplane. We landed on an inlet and saw Grizzlies in the wild. I'm retired ATC and had no safety concerns at all.... More

When you book through the cruise line, they don’t tell you who the ground operator is that they work with so I booked the seaplane tour on my own. I wanted to make sure I was with a company that had the best safety record (theirs was 100% positive) and highest chance to see bears in the wild. I called... More

We recently had the pleasure to book a seaplane trip with Alaska Seaplane Tours to see bears. We had a wonderful flight with an awesome pilot and he was able to get us within 200 feet of a mother brown bear and her 3 cubs.

My partner and I had the perfect first seaplane experience. Wet and misty weather made it look like we travelled to Pandora. Misty Fjords National Wilderness Area is unlike any other on earth. You can truly understand the isolated, remote, breathtaking scenery that is the Tongass Rainforest by taking this tour. Plus, we got to see a big boar brown... More

Awesome breathtaking experience. Weather was perfect and had fantastic views. Loved every second. Next time will purchase tour on the pier rather than purchase on the ship. Save $50.00 or more per ticket. Our pilot was the best with Misty Fjords Sea Plane on 6/9/2015. Selection of music was excellent as well.

We had a great flight with Eric. A 6 passenger plane with headsets and everyone had a window. We landed in a pristine lake and exited the plane for a short time on land. A very memorable part of our Alaska trip. Shuttle pickup and return to our ship were done with no issues. Highly recommend this.

They're very friendly. They were punctual. They were personal. I did the seaplane bear watching tour with Jim as my guide and it was awesome!!! And not just because we saw a bear. I felt very safe the entire plane ride. Jim went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible. Marty was great, too! They're... More

Ketchikan (the town) as a whole was pretty underwhelming, at least relative to the other places we visited in Alaska. But the sights we saw from overhead were amazing. It looked like something from Jurassic Park. We even got to take an "intermission" and dock on one of the rivers halfway through the trip. Lots and lots of pictures. I... More

I am not a fan of flying but I went on the Misty Fjords Seaplane tour for my husband...I'm so glad I did! This was a once in a lifetime experience to see Alaska from a completely new point of view. It was so beautiful and landing in the fjords was almost magical it was such a perfect, pristine area.... More

We arrived by Alaska State Ferry, and found that most activities were geared for the group traveler, arriving via cruise ship -- though fine for others, not what we were looking for. We were fortunate enough to find Alaska Seaplane Tours at Visitor's Information, and were offered the chance for my husband and I to book a charter tour in... More
