We were picked up at our cruise ship dock by a driver with a van and taken to the take-off site. Senior pilot Mike took us on an approximately 70 minute round-trip into the fiords, providing commentary on what we were seeing. He set the plane down on the water and invited the passengers (the plane holds six maximum) to... More

My first trip in a seaplane and loved it. The staff were wonderful and pilot drove me out in a golf buggy to the seaplane as I had a broken ankle to save me hobbling down. We took off and had great views of Ketchikan and onto Misty Fjords. From the air you get a great idea of the remoteness... More

Float plain sight seeing for black bear, crab fest, or eransport at Ketchikan using bush plain. Not inexpensive but ran professionally. Will have special treat if your pilot happens to be the nice Ms. Tracy Hame.

Absolutely breathtaking, only way to see this magnificent scenery. Weather was cloudy but Adam,our pilot, kept us informed of his Plan B, which was slightly longer than the normal route. And probably better. The experience of standing on the aircraft pontoon, with only your fellow passengers in a very remote lake was mind blowing

This was a great shore excursion I booked from my cruise. The scenery was breathtaking and the pilot even landed on a beautiful waterway so we could take pictures of a great waterfall. He narrated everything that we were seeing and there really wasn't a bad seat in the plane. It was tight quarters for someone tall or with long... More

They came picked us up and took us out to their base about ten minutes away where we got a short... More

The natural environment of Southeast Alaska is accessible in limited ways: by foot, by boat and by air. What the last loses in the way of intimacy is more than made up for in breadth. Add a water landing in Punchbowl Lake and you even recover some of that intimacy. We booked this tour on the dock, saving $50 over... More

We booked this excursion on our cruise on Regent. The reason I don't rate this as excellent is I think it should have been a longer flight. Our pilot Evan was great -- very knowledgeable and friendly. As the weather was mild he was able to land on a remote lake where we were able to get out of the... More

We took the Classic Misty Fjords Flightseeing Tour in August 2016. We were planning on taking a longer tour with a different tour company, but we wanted to use our on-board cruise credit so we booked with Taquan Air. The tour was two hours and the perfect amount of time to get some great views of the fjords. I forgot... More

Chuck was a terrific pilot, sharing his knowledge and love of Alaska as he skilfully flew us close to glaciers and waterfalls and swooping back down to land on the fjord.I have landed in a Twin Otter on the beach on the Isle of Barra Scotland and landing in an Otter with floats on glassy fjord was every bit as...
