Taquan Air flying to the Misty Fjords was awesome. The pilot does a little bit of talking but you put on headphones & most of it is pre-recorded. It had rained earlier that day (no surprise for Ketchikan) so there were a lot of little waterfalls and as our pilot was coming around to the Misty Fjords the song playing... More

Best thing I did in Ketchikan. Amazing views with narration and music. Flight and landing were very smooth. Pilot did not say anything, but was friendly and courteous. He did land in a remote lake and let us get our and take photos. It was just breathtaking.

Such beautiful scenery! Such a wonderful company - full of people who seem to love their jobs and take really good and friendly care of their customers. Went up over Misty Fjords with "Captain Dan" who was fabulous and very knowledgeable and put us all (five women!) at ease. I had the distinct pleasure of riding in the co-pilot's seat... More

Holland America had cancelled the booking we had made and paid for because of the accident a few days earlier which left 8 tourists and their pilot dead in a crash on a windy rainy day. Now we were offered a ride on a sea-plane (a float plane which we had never before experienced) with a different company, Taquan Air... More

The pilot was wonderful. You could tell he loves his job! Misty Fjords is a breathtaking excursion. Would definitely recommend seeing this monument by seaplane. Staff were accommodating. Pilot landed the plane and let's you exit the plane while in "the cup."

We took a tour of the Misty Fjords area with a Taquan float plane expedition. Our pilot clearly loved the area and gave us great views of the area before setting down for a brief float on a lovely mountain lake. This is a terrific way to see the area.

Good value for the money. Spent a lot of time flying over the fjords. Pilot was outstanding. Smooth, smooth, smooth, liftoff and landings. I am not a flyer, but my husband is, and I knew he would enjoy this. I was green about 10 minutes into it, and was truly sad about that, but that is no fault of the... More

Took the tour with my mom and dad. Very professional folks. Very knowledgable pilots and overall great experience. I left my pricy sunglasses on the plane. I called and was fully prepared to pay for them to mail them to me They said don't worry about it. Really nice touch guys. Thank you very much

We were thrilled with our flightseeing tour with Taquan Air Tours. I am sorry I don't remember our pilot's name but he was a retired Navy pilot and he did a really great job. He added his own special knowledge and flair to the narration and gave us a wonderful tour of the beautiful scenery. One of our group was... More

We weren't with a cruise line (came in in the ferry) and Taquan went out of their way to pick us up and drop us off. Jim our pilot was great. He explained and pointed out lots of interesting sights. The weather was awesome. Their office folks were well organized! Thank you for being a professional organization!!
