Ketchikan Misty Fjords Flightseeing Excursion Reviews
After much research, I decided that this is where I would pay the bucks to see Alaska from air. We were blessed by blue skies. Skies that they had not seen for 6-weeks, so beware! We saw fjords, landed on one, followed glaciers, and saw peaks that the pilot even rarely sees due to the amazing weather that day. I cannot explain how much this was worth the price. Plan on at least $250 per person per hour, second hour cheaper.
Very picturesque fishing village. We had a gorgeous day and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery at Misty Fjords.
Did the float plane on a whim. Treat of a lifetime
Very efficient operation: felt very safe and well looked after! Pilot really friendly and helpful. Views are spectacular and landing on a lake and stepping on the pontoon is the icing on the cake!
Very beautiful. Would do it again.
Doesn't get any better than Michelle and Island Wings. You actually get out of the plane and go on shore at a lake and truly get to soak up the beauty and stillness of the area.
We did the Misty Fjords Tour with Seawind Aviation. Co-owner, Lesley Kamm picked us up at the pre-designated location and drove us to a dock about 5 to 10 minutes away where we boarded a yellow sea plane flown by Pilot Rolf. While flying he was very informative about the Misty Fjord area, the lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. He landed the plane in a secluded river where there was a floating dock. We got off the plane to stretch our legs a little and took more pictures in this calm and tranquil location. We must have been there for about 20 minutes before lifting off again and circling around more ice cap mountains and watching the mountain goats running around before heading back to the base. Very smooth take-offs and landings, much smoother than our commercial flights on Alaska and United Airlines. We would definitely book with Seawind Aviation if we came back here, well worth it.
Amazing experience.a highlight of our trip.
Time was very short. Nothing spectacular.
Beautiful flight and excellent pilot. We landed on the water mid-flight and it was lovely. A perfect day meant there was no mist. We even saw a pod of killer whales.
The Fjord was beautiful but not worth the price that cruise charges. You are better off booking this excursion one you disembark at the visitors center. We saved about $80 by booking there instead of the ship.
