SeaWind Aviation was fabulous! The family owned company was friendly, responsive, and professional. Our flight over Misty Fjords was stunning! Owner and pilot Steve gave us a wonderful overview of the area with commentary, along with classic tunes playing in the background. Highly recommend it!

Today was our first day ever in Alaska. We docked in Ketchikan this morning, and we were scheduled to take a flight seeing tour aboard a seaplane in the Misty Fjord National Monument, BUT….we received a notice on our door last night that our flight had been canceled. Super sad, we decided to just spend the day walking around Ketchikan and I was going to drown my sorrows by eating King Crab. I mean sounded redeeming….anyways. We spent the morning wandering around town, and after about two hours found ourselves back at the visitor center. We went in to see if there were any tours and voila! Another flight seeing tour! We booked it. We then waited until the time to go, boarded the van, and then….cancelled. It’s windy apparently.

Sadder than we were before, we just started walking across town. Full bags on camera gear in tow…we walked. And stopped and ate crab. And then we walked. And then!!!! Haha We found an eagle!!! Just sitting there. Good sign right? And then we found more eagles, and so we just kept following the eagles, until we reached Seawind Aviation. It looked closed, but I walked in. No one was there. I jiggled the little bells on the door, and moments later the kindest people appeared. I asked if there were any seaplane tours, and they were like “sure!! We have one that can go at 13:30?” We jumped on it, and the rest was history! The third time really is the charm and saved us from leaving Ketichikan a little bit sadder. We could not have asked for a better experience.

We had a wonderful time! Highly, highly recommend them. Steve - our pilot - has been flying in this area for over 30 years. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Oh. And those eagles we followed….all apparently hang out at Seawind Aviation. 🥰🤗 It was just meant to be for us, and we could not have had a better day. Sometimes things just work out as they should and birds always know the way. 😉

This was a highlight of our Ketchikan visit. Owner and local pilot Steve is a personable and fun guide who gave us a great afternoon flying through the Misty Fjords. We put down on a little island in one of the lakes to enjoy the scenery and take photos. The Misty Fjords did not disappoint! Highly recommend!

Seaplane tour was an amazing way to experience the beauty of Misty Fjords! Scenery was stunning throughout the flight. Landing on a lake with the chance to get out on a small lake was a true highlight. Seawind also coordinated with us on our flight time since or cruise ship arrived late, picked us up at the NCL Ward Cove dock, dropped us in Ketchikan after the tour, and later took us back to the ship. They were also easy to get a hold of via phone.

This was the highlight of our trip! What a great experience….Steve and Lesley are great to book with. We had a beautiful day in Ketchikan and the views were spectacular! When we climbed aboard they asked for a backseat volunteer….I jumped at it and boy was I glad I did. I was the only one back there so I was able to take pics from both sides… not that you can’t upfront but I didn’t have to reach over anyone. I had a lot of room..5”5. …climbing in and out was pretty easy as well…slow an easy on the steps. Landing on the lake was….so cool!… the lake was like glass, the pics we have show the reflection of the mtn & clouds on the lake…amazing. I’m actually still smiling from the experience! I would highly recommend you book with SeaWind Aviation.

Our tour was scheduled for 8AM but it was too windy when it was time to leave so they got us on the 11AM tour and we were able to still do the tour. It was an absolutely amazing experience. The BEST way to see Ketchikan. I would highly recommend this tour and Seawind Aviation.

We had a truly beautiful flight out to Misty Fjords today with an excellent pilot but some very rude behavior by one of the employees at the office left us wishing we would have gone with a different operator. After our flight was over we asked if it would be okay to leave our luggage in the office while we grabbed lunch. We came back to pick it and paused on the gangway to admire a lovely group of seals who were hanging out on the dock. After a few minutes a dark haired man came out of the office and angrily yelled at us, “You need to get out of here, you can’t be on the dock.” I told him we were there to pick up our luggage and he said “I know but you need to leave. If the FAA saw you on the dock it would be my ass”.
If it’s an important rule, then put up a large sign and if you need to ask customers to move, ask in a friendly, polite way. Having an employee aggressively holler at me after spending $750 on plane tour tickets definitely left a bad taste in my mouth. It’s also worth noting that the free shuttle pick up advertised on the website seems to only applies to the cruise ship docks. We were in town on a sailboat and weren’t able to get a pick up at a marina that was 15 minutes down the road or a ride to the airport afterwards.

Hello Abigail, I'm mortified reading about your experience with us! This is not acceptable by our company. The employee has been dealt with, and I apologize about the driving also. I offered to take you to the airport ferry when you returned after eating, and then was not here when you returned later. I tried reaching you by phone the other day and then sent an email to you directly. I know your sailing, but hope that you receive that. I'm sorry about our experience and hope you do return to Ketchikan. Take care, Lesley

We did a lot of things while in Ketchikan for the week including two days of fishing. Of the 6 of us on this trip, all said that this flight tour was by far the best part of the entire trip. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime and cannot be missed. The professionalism and preparedness of the pilot and crew were outstanding.

We flew with Eric on a Mistry Fjords floatplane and it’s beautiful. The whole flight was so beautiful and pictures don’t do justice. My daughter was given the co-pilot seat and that was special for her. We did it book in advance, and Danielle worked hard to make it happen for us. It’s expensive, but so worth it!!

We did not come off a cruise but were staying in town. Staff was very helpful in coordinating pick-up and delivering us back. It was a great flight and our pilot was fun and informative. We were very lucky with the weather - clear beautiful (but warm) day
