The sea plane ride was nice. We took a long boat ride watching mountains and jungles. Mountains covered with oak trees and other vegetation. Then we reached a place from where we had to board the plane. Plane is small, six seater. The pilot was trained.After we got into the plane it took off from water where it was floating.... More

We visited Ketchikan and were inundated with tourist offerings and aggressive touts. However, we lucked upon Alaska Seaplane Tours and decided to splurge on a sightseeing, bear watching floatplane adventure. I'm so glad we made this choice. The entire family, ages 9 to 75, really enjoyed the experience. My wife is a pilot and felt very comfortable with the credentials... More

We had many choices and we definitely made the right one. It was a perfect day to fly and the pilot seemed as enthused as us.Safe, beautiful and worth the $ !

My daughter and I arrived on a cruise ship in Ketchikan where we decided at the last minute to book a flight to see the bears, etc. at Neet's Bay. What a great experience from beginning to end! The owner actually flew us to Neet's Bay where we saw bears with the salmon. Everyone from the van driver to the... More

The private 90 minute flight with our pilot Van was a realy great trip. The recommendation from the owner to take the flight in the evening was realy good to avoid the countless airplanes booked by the cruise tourists. The cruises will leave the city at about 4-6 pm. So we were the only ones who landed on a lonely... More

Loved Ketchikan and totally enjoyed our seaplane tour to Prince of Wales Island. Ryan, our pilot, shared his experience and knowledge with us. The island was beautiful and we say more than we expected .. including a US submarine in the waters. We were fortunate to see seals chasing salmon, probably 8 black bear, and more eagles than I could... More

This is a great outfit flown by even greater pilots. We recently flew into the backcountry to a secluded lake and couldn't have asked for a better flight both in and out. I would and will recommend them to anybody looking to take to the air from Ketchikan and hope to fly with them in the future.

We booked a trip with Alaska Seaplane Tours a few weeks in advance of our cruise, as we were keen to see more of Alaska and to see a bear in the wild if at all possible. This trip easily met all our expectations. We were picked up on time at the harbour and had a fantastic trip for just... More

We hadn't booked anything for Ketchikan but when we arrived I was keen to follow up on bear sightings. I'd seen a couple from the ship on the shore, but it was May and they were not yet plentiful. I hadn't wanted to see them in a confined environment, even if it was a sanctuary. Any way, we went to... More

This tour was pre booked about 4 months earlier. We were fortunate to have a clear day but it was hot. (80 degrees) Alaska was having a heat wave. We met our driver at the pier near our ship. It took approximately 10 minutes to get to our floatplane dock. There were 2 floatplanes ready. We had booked a private... More
