Our pilot was a great tour guide also. The highlight of the flight was landing in a lake surrounded by mountains. We got out and walked on the floats to get a feeling of being in the middle of no where. Amazing all around.

Taquan Air is one of two airlines that offer service to Metlakatla. The waiting area in Ketchikan is beautiful and the staff is helpful. Flight times are always on schedule and company apparel for sale on site is a plus. Save a couple dollars by booking online.

Since we were in Ketchikan on a sunny day, we decided at the last minute to book this flight. The scenery was great, and the pilot experienced and competent. The flight include a landing and take off from an inland lake.

We love to live in Smart, Modern cities, the concrete jungles but being in the Wilderness is truely Soul Touching. We were in Ketchikan, Alaska, in Jul 2015 and we heard of the Misty Fjords. There were sea planes which could take us there. So we chose Taquan Air Tour to Misty Fjords. Apart from the experience of being in... More

It was just a spur of the moment, we met a salesman in the info center and off we went. A great ride to their headquarters and off we went with young female pilot, sorry can't recall her name. She was a great guide for our trip very enjoyable and so much to see. Ed

Our time in Ketchikan was limited due to our visit being a cruise stop. We got off the ship and immediately saw the booth for the floatplane tour. Price was slightly less than through cruise line. They provided transportation to the docks, showed us a safety video and quickly got us airborne! What a wonderful experience. The plane windows were... More

My husband & I were on a cruise that stopped in Ketchikan. We booked the Flightseeing and Crab Feast through the ships Excursion desk. So glad we picked this excursion. It was amazing. A bus was waiting at the pier to take us on a short drive (approx 30 minutes) to George Inlet Lodge. We were shown into our own... More

I booked this tour while I was on the Holland America Volendam Alaska cruise. We were told that the plane would land on the water and we would be able to get out and stand on the 'floats' or dangle our feet in the water. This didn't happen. Our pilot opened the doors and we sat in the plane. He... More

My 11 yo daughter and I made this trip while our cruise ship was in Ketchikan and my husband and son were zip lining. We had a terrific adventure and we highly recommend it.

I'm not sure that I'd say "once in a lifetime," because we might do it again!! It was perfect! Great views, great pilot, but when he "parked" on the water and let us scramble out onto the floats, that was TOO cool!! It's pricey, but worth it!
