The exact title of our excursion was “Discovery Exclusive: Misty Fjords Seaplane and Crab Fest.” It was very, very expensive but worth every penny! It made our cruise and we would highly recommend it.
The group was small – only 11 passengers. We took a one hour flight in a seaplane with our pilot (Luke, who was fabulous!) acting as a guide over the Tongass National Forest and the Misty Fjords National Monument. The only way to really see the majesty of these areas is by plane. We had sunny skies and a glorious flight! Takeoff and landing, both on the water, were smoother than any major airline could accomplish. The flight was followed by an “all you can eat” crab leg lunch with all the wine and beer you can drink at the lakeside George Inlet Lodge. A great way to spend the morning in Ketchikan.
