We arrived on a cruise ship and I had booked this excursion at home before we left. This was, by far, the highlight of our trip. The weather was beautiful, our pilot was informative and the planes were well maintained. Do this! You won't be disappointed. The Misty Fiords are simply incredible.

We booked this tour off the cruise (its cheaper that way for the exact same thing). It was smooth, breathtaking, and a great way to start our trip! Ketchikan is full of shopping and things to see, but to take a flight through the Misty Fjords is a must do to truly appreciate the scenery that Alaska has to offer.

My wife and I did this for our anniversary and it was fantastic. We had great weather and seeing the fjords from the air was spectacular. We landed in a lake and got to walk around on a small island and flying out we saw a momma grizzly with her cub. The pilot was informative and helpful.

This flight was the highlight of our trip to Alaska. The scenery is unbelievably beautiful and it was fantastic to land on a lake miles from anyone else and enjoy the sounds of nature. We saw glaciers, mountains, lakes... so much lovely terrain and also several herds of mountain sheep. The pilot was friendly and professional and made us all... More

We booked early online and were not disappointed. Our pilot was amazing and the views were spectacular! Would have given 5 out of 5 but the people who booked at the dock saved $75 per person... we had 4 people- $300 is a whole lotta money!

We did this tour after walking off the ship and being offered a "special" from an on shore tour booth. They indicated that the Bears could be seen in the creek which was the deal sealer for us! Unfortunately, no bears but who really cares the scenery was superb and we really enjoyed the take off and landing on the... More

This was my first time in a sea plane and I have to admit I was a little apprehensive. I got over it almost immediately. The fjords are made for these planes. The views are breathtaking. The pilots are clearly professional. I think this is a definite for any trip to Ketchikan.

Our first excursion on our Alaska cruise was a floatplane trip with Misty Fjords Air. Amazing! The takeoff and landing were smooth. Our pilot, Dave, was friendly and informative. The views were incredible and I believe the overcast actually improved the experience. Best of all we landed on a lake and were able to exit the plane and stand on... More

Great pilot Rolf. Kept us safe and happy and carefree. The sea plane experiences turbulence (I don't mind), be prepared. It was a sunny day when we went, and the scenes were truly remarkable. I can't say enough, we had an incredible experience. (Saw others tip 5-10 normally, but we tipped 20 because piloting fjords is actually quite difficult, and... More
