This was our favorite excursion of our cruise. Amanda, our pilot, was great and really is an excellent pilot. AJ the guide that showed us around the Tongass forest bear viewing is also very informative and you feel safe with him knowing he's a former law enforcement officer. The former bear habitat viewing site is located down river from some... More

We took this excursion while sailing on the Sapphire Princess from Vancouver B.C. to Whittier Alaska. Either part (float plane or bear watching) of the tour would have been great but the two combined was more than we could hope for. The flight was around 20 minutes each way with a one hour bear watching in between. We landed in... More

I must admit I hate flying. I told this to our pilot who promised me an enjoyable flight and he was right. Our very experienced pilot made this an experience to remember. Beautiful scenery and smooth flying. Would recommend this tour to everyone, even those who do not like flying.

This was part of our crab feast tour to George inlet. Our cruise ship offered a tour where you bused in to have a crab feast and then scenic floatplane out. Or vice versa. We had a lovely female pilot who looked like she loved her job. The flight was awesome, the scenery spectacular. Highly recommend doing.

We took Misty Fjords float plane tour during our cruise ship stop over. The flight that we had booked was cancelled due to weather; but we were given the option to either get a refund or take the next flight. We opted for the later and had a blast. Their entire crew was very professional and made sure we felt... More

This was a great tour of Misty Fjords in a DeHavilland Beaver floatplane. Our pilot was excellent and such beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend this tour!

I loved this seaplane experience. Discounted to $200... We took off and flew over beautiful mountains before landing on a secluded lake. After getting out and snapping a few pictures from the floats we climbed back in to take off and fly over a waterfall for a breathtaking photo opportunity and then glided over mountain peaks to see a flock...

I will admit I didn't know anything about fjords before our float plane trip. What and amazing thing to see. Our pilot, Brian maybe I have forgotten his name was great. He one of the four pilots that fly for Taquan year round. We landed on a Fjord and got our of the plane and got to stand on one... More

We were shuttled from our cruise ship by small coach to the plane docks. We watched a short safety video and were placed into small groups of 5 or 6 and led to the plane by the pilot. Our group had 6 passengers. We listened to mood-music in our headphones most of the time. This pilot was not particularly a... More

After being in Alaska for about a week, we were really looking forward to our float plane ride - as we had already seen so many fly by. We had an absolutely perfect day for flying. We took a ride back from George's Inlet to the cruise boat. Our pilot was grumpy and not personable. He had the ability to... More
