Ketchikan Float Plane Excursion Reviews
The weather in Ketchikan was cloudy and drizzily. We had a 7:30 excursion in a float plane to the Misty Fijords. (We later heard all the later excursions were cancelled). The plane takes off from the water. Our pilot was Kevin and he was very nice. I sat in the co-pilot seat and my wife sat in the back. She didn't find it too comfortable and their was a some wind going through the door which made her cold. I didn't have any of these issues in the front. The plane ride was smooth and when you are flying through the Misty Fijord, it was just breath taking. The plane does land in the Fijord and you get to just float and enjoy the scenery for about 15 minutes. Yes, I would definitely do this again but if you had sunny weather, it would be even better.
NCL excursion flightseeing and bear watching was excellent. The guide was informative and knew his stuff.
It was okay. Loves of forest. We did our flight on the most sunny day of the year. Beautiful views from the skies. Saw some goats, but that is it. 30 minutes was plenty.
Went to Neets Bay to see the Salmon Hatchery and watch bears. Unfortunately no salmon running so only saw a couple of bears in the distance. But well worth it for the flight and the scenery.
