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

It was our first trip to the Misty Fjords and we selected Taquan Air due to their coupon in the Tour Saver book. We booked 9 months in advance and were able to fly for a 2 for 1 rate! The entire staff was very professional--from the guide who picked us up at the cruise dock to the workers in... More

What a great experience. I was so happy that I overcame my fears of flying in the small plane and enjoyed the trip. It was the best travel experiences of my life. Our pilot was great.

Roger, former crop duster from Nebraska, was a wonderful pilot/guide. We enjoyed best views, wonderful landing on lake, as well as interesting history & geology of area.
