After doing a lot of research we booked our float plane trip to Misty with Island Wings because of all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and other sites. We traveled to Ketchikan via Holland America in May 2017. After a very short van ride...More

Six of us took Michelle’s flight around Ketchikan. We landed on a lake way out in the wilderness. Her narration was awesome. We all came away thinking it was a highlight of our Alaska trip.

You should probably ask Island Wings directly. I would think it would be difficult, but if she can do it I highly recommend this trip. My spouse and I had an awesome time.
