We booked a wonderful trip from when we got off the ship. Sea plane that took us to the Majestic Forge. We ended up saving $200 not using the cruise line. However, this is the same agency that the cruise line uses. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Pilot was very professional. Well worth the time and money.

Our family of five, from teenager to grandparents, all loved our flight to the Misty Fjords National Monument. We did this as a cruise excursion through Holland America, which called it "Magnificent Misty Fjords by Floatplane." Everything went smoothly from start to finish.

My family of 5 had the most amazing time flightseeing the Misty Fjords National Park with Taquan Air on our recent RC Cruise. When we first checked in with their representative she mentioned our family may have to be split up and go on separate airplanes. When I expressed concern about this she said they would see what they could... More

This excursion is worth the money! We did not book it on the cruise. It was a better deal to book off the ship. Cost per person was advertised at $225.00. We got it for 189.00 per person if all 4 of us went. The ride is awesome! It takes off in the water, makes a stop in the water... More

We flew with the mail run for 3 hours for a close-up, hands-on experience. It was great, and the pilot was great. We were lucky to get on a run with 5 take-offs and landings over on Prince of Wales Island. I would highly recommend this if you have the extra time to spend.

Booked this tour at the last minute and it was one of the best decisions we made. They came and picked us up at the cruise ship to take us to the marina. It was overcast but still beautiful. Our pilot Ben was very friendly and gave us a great tour. Got to land on the water and stand on... More

I don't like small planes, but I love adventure so I signed up for a Sea plane tour and crab feed. The crab was amazing, but the flight was even better. We had a beautiful day, so safety was not a concern. We flew over beautiful mountains, lakes and streams, and very close to the cliffs. The sea landing was... More

We decided to splurge and see Misty Fjords by air. The Taquan Air staff were exceptionally professional and their ternimal is very nice. The pilot was very skilled and since we had a beautiful day we were able to fly a little higher and further. It was a gorgeous trip and we thought landing on the lake and standing on... More

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
