A group of us (5) decided last minute to do a float bush plane excursion. We had an amazing day (a rare sunny day in Ketchikan) to fly around (some of our group got to even see some bald eagles flying). One of members was even able to sit in the copilot seat. Our pilot told us a ton of... More

Took the Misty Fjords trip out of Ketchikan with Taquan Air Tours. The scenery was spectacular as our pilot, Adam, narrated along the way. Nothing like cruising just over sheer cliffs and following a waterfall as it descended. Also got to experience a water landing! Adam was an excellent pilot and was experienced at handling the aircraft as well as... More

Reserved a tour on a floatplane for Misty Arm Fjords. Tour took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. Our pilot, Tony, flew us over some beautiful country and narrated what we were seeing. Half way through our tour he landed on the water and we were able to exit the plane and walk on the pontoons. This was a bucket... More

The seaplane trip over Misty Fjords national park was expensive but indeed worthwhile. Our pilot, Sam, was really knowledgeable, amicable and capable. The ride from the quay to Taquan Air was slightly unpleasant because the bus had no air circulating in it. Staff were friendly and efficient throughout. The breathtaking views over plunging cliffs, deep blue waters and miles of... More

Incredible seaplane ride with a great pilot (very informative). The highlight was going to Anan Creek and seeing the bears feed on salmon. They are literally 2-3 ft away (you are on a deck overlooking them). My kids (ages 22-28) wanted to see bears on our trip and we saw at least 10 of them. It was early in the... More

One must take the flight from Taquan Air and see Misty Fjord! They give exceptional service and the staff is very knowledgeable. They clicked pictures for us from our camera even when they were selling pictures clicked by them!

This aerial tour of the Ketchikan area and surrounding fjords was outstanding. The flight contained pre-recorded audio that was informative but not intrusive. We observed mountain goats atop mountains. We even landed on a remote mountain lake and saw a mother bear with two cubs! I cannot express how enjoyable this tour was. We took the pure aerial tour (about... More

This was our one big excursion we chose while cruising through Alaska. If you purchase the Alaska coupon book ahead of time they have a buy one get one free offer. Even after purchasing the coupon book for $99 you still save on the trip. We were able to use one other coupon so it more than paid for itself.... More

Mike was our guide. So friendly and informative. Many times he'd turn the lady in our headphones off and narrate himself, which was better. Other times he was just quiet and let us enjoy the incredible beauty that is Misty Fjords on our own. For us this was definitely once in a lifetime and we enjoyed every minute. The flight.... More
