This was our first experience on a float plane. Mark was very experienced and very knowledgeable on our trip of the Misty Fjords. Take-off and landing was very smooth both times. Pickup was prompt and our driver was very courteous. I would highly recommend Pirate Airworks if you're planning a trip to the Misty Fjords. It was well worth the money and time. They should be everyone's first choice in Ketchikan for a flightseeing tour.

Our flight to Misty Fiords & back to Ketchikan was outstanding. Our flight in a DeHavilland Beaver was incredible. Our pilot, Mark, was informative and fun. We flew for about 45 minutes, landed in one of the Fiords and were able to get out on a dock for 10-15 minutes. We then flew back. This was not our first float plane ride but this was truly exceptional.
