Thank you Josh for creating memorable experiences for us, especially for our girls. They enjoyed the beauty and the fish! Incredible sights. We only wish we were able to have more time at the fjords to enjoy the beauty. Due to the rain, we were unable to see much wildlife.

Our flightseeing experience was exceptional. The Misty Fjord is a beautiful area, and seeing it by plane was amazing. Flying in and out of the hills, and the beauty of the lakes was spectacular. Halfway through our flight we landed in a lake, and as we coasted towards shore 4 bald eagles took flight from the shore and flew right... More

Josh is a very good pilot and gives a lot of information without being overly chatty. He plays music through the headsets that sets the tone for the awe-inspiring scenery. Misty Fjords is an incredible place that exemplifies the wonder of Alaska - big, rugged, remote, beautiful.

Our pilot was great, with great dialogue of where we were going and what we were seeing. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is visiting Ketchikan either directly or as part of a cruise.

I really enjoyed the float plane through the misty fjords. Some of the most beautiful scenery I saw while in Alaska. The pilot was nice and extremely knowledgable.

This is a very good excursion. Its expensive buy its worth it. We enjoyed a beautiful day at the fjords and the views from the plane were amazing.

This was probably the best excusion we took on our recent cruise through the inside passage of Alaska. The views were awesome, and our pilot, Dave, provided a super smooth ride and was very knowledgeable. The water landing was so smooth that I didn't even realized we'd touched down until I looked back and saw a wake! Highly recommended.

We took the flight on a whim while in Ketchikan. Flight was in the a 9-seater and lasted just under 2-hours. The flight itinerary is over the Misty Fjords National Monument wilderness with a landing at the headwaters lake for about 15 minutes. The flight was great and the pilot was not only very skilled but very knowledgeable of the... More

The overall experience of this tour was terrific, but I think our pilot, Nick, might have ignored some of our questions and comments. We were a party of 10 so we had the plane to ourselves. You could hear members of your group ask the pilot questions and there were numerous times myself and others asked questions and were ignored.... More

After our cruise ship docked, we made a spontaneous decision to book a float place ride over the Misty Fjords and Ketchikan. So happy we did this. The views were incredible. I was apprehensive at first, but take off and landings were incredibly smooth. Highly recommend this experience.
