I flew in a small (6-8 people) Dehaviland Float Plane. Absolutely fabulous experience, lasting about 90 minutes, including a water landing near a small island and chance to take photos. Not something to try if you don't like flying in a small plane or clambering over the floats to gain access to the plane, but the flight and landings were... More

I had to temporarily restrain my wife and daughter in order to get load them aboard the small Dehavilland Beaver, I appreciate the pilot and ground crew for their assistance in the matter. Once airborne we were able to remove the straight jackets and I believe they actually had a vey memorable time. I think they where in awe, as... More

Had a great time. Great staff and pilot. The views were amazing. Well worth the money and time! If you're in the Ketchikan area please visit these folks. You'll have a blast!

This was the most expensive trip we took as a family of 4. It was well worth it though. We were referred by some friends who had cruised earlier in the summer. The fjords are amazing and the pilot spent extra time answering our kids' questions.

One of the most memorable tours in our travels over many years. We boarded a DeHaviland Beaver (Floatplane) for our flight into the Misty Fjords of Ketchikan with incredible anticipation. This particular aircraft has a capacity of 6 plus the pilot. As there were six of us it was our own private tour. The thrill of hearing the thump thump... More

Excellent service and great views. I hate flying but I was absolutely at ease in an aircraft that was older than I am!

As part of our Celebrity Cruise-tour we took a floatplane excursion to Misty-Fjords. Our pilot for our Taquan Air tour was a retired UPS pilot who retired from Louisvilleour home town. Though it was raining in Ketchikan, as usual, it was a great day to fly. He was right we flew out of the rain and the sights were breath-taking.... More

How do you describe something that takes your words away and leaves you speechless? This was meant to be a Floatplane and Alaskan Bear excursion. We definitely saw the floatplane. :) If you ever read my reviews you know that heights aren't my favorite thing - so the idea of being in a small aircraft way up high in the... More

After several rainy ports we finally arrived in sunny Kethcikan. Our flight the previous day in Skgway had been cancelled and they referred us to Taquan Air. I was able to book an online web special and for the 6 of us it was a great savings. It was very easy to get the shuttle from the cruise ship, and... More
