What a trip! - an incredible morning out flying over the stunning scenery around Ketchikan, and eventually landing on one of the lakes in Misty Fjords.
Our pilot (Chuck?) was amazing - his commentary superb, as was his obvious love for the area, he even brought along his own tailored playlist for the journey which was excellent (the choice of Stairway to Heaven was particularly inspired).
A truly fantastic trip and one that we would really, really recommend to others to take.Denisov1812
We took this tour as part of our Celebrity cruise. We had warm sunny weather. Be advised that there is no AC in these planes. you must be agile to climb in and out of the plane.
Very organized from start to finish. Nice but small waiting area with a variety of gifts to purchase. We had a very knowledgeable pilot. We landed on the the water and able to walk out onto the float of the plane while on the fjord.... Read MoreMaggieTraveler007
Great flight. It was our first time on a sea plane. Flight was smooth. Pilot Dave was very good at pointing things out during the flight. The views were amazing. Great ways to see the Misty Fjords’ of Alaska.Steve C.
What a great adventure! Beautiful sights! Up close and personal with Misty Fjords. Must do for everyone!Jill D.
We really enjoyed this plane ride. Scenery was beautiful and staff was great. It was very expensive though.kpiapi
This is a great tour where you see waterfalls, fjords and lakes. The landing on the lake was awesome. Very quiet and peaceful once you stood outside the seaplane. Our pilot was excellent. It was raining in Ketchikan when we left, but the pilot said they have access to cameras in the fjords and said the weather would be better there. And they were right. Glad we took this tour and happy we chose Misty Fjords Air & Outfitting.CharlieMickKeith
Slightly concerned by a drab day with low cloud in Ketchikan, we were assured that conditions in the Fjords would be different and so it proved. We had a great flight with Captain Davy, relaxed, comfortable, informative and highly picturesque. Landing on the Fjord was smooth as silk as were the other take offs and landings. If flight-seeing over Misty Fjords is for you, then we would highly recommend this company.alan_julie_11
This was such an awesome experience! Beautiful! Loved the landing. Our pilot was very nice and made the experience personal!Jamie1955
On a Viking cruise and booked this outing with friends. The company was professional and efficient and our pilot instilled confidence. Because the ceiling was too low the pilot turned around after about 20 minutes in the air (the view was great!) and said we couldn't complete the trip. We were all happy he readily ended the flight in consideration of our safety first. I gave it a 4, only because of the weather. We would use them again if we find ourselves back in Alaska.michaeltb2015
We flew in a new Otter turbo prop float plane. Skilled and experienced pilot.Smooth ride, quiet landing on the lake water- simply breathtaking! Guide was knowledgable and helpful during the flight. It was so peaceful on the water. We had a beautiful day. Just wish we could have stayed longer before having to turn around-maybe offer a picnic lunch or snack break- just to extend the time? Appreciated the safety instructions and that they don't fly if the weather is questionable. (We missed... Read Moreretired577
Although not as breathtaking or awesome as the "5-Glacier Seaplane Exploration" flight we took a couple of days before from Juneau (with Wings Airways), the Misty Fjords Seaplane Tour was absolutely beautiful. With 2 mishaps involving 3 other company's aircraft within the 2 months before (resulting in several deaths), we were a little apprehensive. Our apprehension wasn't helped when we were informed that our flight would go ahead notwithstanding the very low clouds and light rain, or by the casual atmosphere that seems to permeate...

My experience started out positively by talking with Megan about safety and scheduling, after recent accidents in the area with other companies. We felt confident as our trip rolled around, and were impressed with the efficient and professional operation. When we asked out pilot if we could possibly travel past a spot another plane had spotted bears, he kindly taxied slowly from our mid-flight stop, to attempt a sighting for us. The scenery was serene and breathtaking; it was a memorable excursion.GlobalGal2000
