What You Can Expect
Rise over Tongass Narrows, a body of water located between Ketchikan and Gravina Island, and soar past Ketchikan. You’ll be amazed by the beauty of Tongass National Forest as you fly over Revillagigedo Island to Misty Fjords National Monument, about 40 miles (64 km) east of town.
Traveling through a low-hanging mist that gives the region its name, admire landscapes of cliffs, fjords and rock walls jutting straight out of the water. Forests of cedar, spruce and hemlock trees blanket vertical slopes, and waterfalls thunder down narrow granite passages.
Your pilot navigates over Rudyard Bay, giving you a great vantage point of New Eddystone Rock, a remnant of early volcanic activity. Don’t forget wildlife lives in this gorgeous wilderness, so keep watch for deer, wolves, bears and eagles.
Just when you think this flight couldn’t get any better, your pilot makes a smooth but exciting landing on one of the fjords or lakes (depending on weather conditions). Step out onto a pontoon right in the heart of the wilderness, and soak up the scenery.
Then, your 2-hour seaplane tour ends with drop-off back in Ketchikan.
great tour. The flight was awesome. Landing on the Fjord was great.
awesome!!!! very nice pilot. smooth landings. a must do!!!!!
This was awesome. Our pilot was great and informative. We had a great time. I highly recommend this float plane excursion.
Spectacular scenery. Everyone who goes to Ketchikan should take this tour. The Park is like a cross between Glacier National Park and Yosemite National Park. I had no idea that this existed.
This tour was amazing!
This was a brilliant tour and something none of us had ever done before. Landing on the fjord and then standing on the floats was a bonus.
The organisation was excellent and all the staff very helpful and friendly.
I would not have missed it for the world.
