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

This was an AMAZING tour that we would do over again in a heartbeat! Our pilot Trevor was an awesome tour guide who was very informative with a nice dose of humor. He gave us an experience we will remember forever. Marty, the owner, was a great guy that takes pride in his business and the customer experience. I would... More

We had a wonderful time with Alaska Seaplane Tours last week! Marty was very nice and helpful when he picked us up (and dropped us off afterwards) near our cruise ship. Eric was a very professional pilot. I was nervous about flying in a small plane but I felt very safe the entire time. It was amazing to see the... More

I took a 3 hr Glacier Fjords Explorer Tour. It was amazing! We had a great sunny day and the pilot had so much fun (he said the sunny weather is rare). He flew with is as far into the glacier area. We landed on a lake between the mountains. Unfortunately we didn't see much wild life, but we saw... More

Just got back from our trip--1st week of June 2014. We booked this on our own vs. the cruise ship. This looked like the "real" alaskan type experience. Got a great day of weather-especially by Ketchikan standards. I'm a pilot and aviation enthusiast and had high expectations. The tour over/in misty fjords was flat out awesome. Pilot was top notch,... More

I made arrangements with Marty who was always helpful and responsive. Our flight was delayed due to circumstances beyond their control, but they made two alternative arrangements from which we could select, so that was great for us. Our pilot Trevor was outstanding--not only was he a safe and knowledgeable pilot, but he was very personable. I would go with... More

What a great company to work with!! Our pilot was a local guy, raised in the area so he knew everything about the area where to go what to see, and had a wealth of knowledge!! Excellent pilot, took us to see Misty Fjords, bears, eagles / eagles nests, Mountain goats, and some of the best scenery in the area.... More

If you intend to "fly" in Ketchican, use Alaksa Seaplane Tours. Due to an error on my part, we missed our initial shuttle (I waited on the wrong side of Bay Building - you have to wait on the side where the totem pole is located). When I saw the van drive past, I was upset; however, shortly after another... More

We went on the 2 hour flight to Misty Fjords and for some bear-watching. Great flight and very professional and informative pilot. The company was great to work with in booking the flight as well. AMAZING views on the flight, such incredible scenery. Seaplane takeoffs and landings on remote mountain waters are really cool. We didn't see any bears, but... More
