What an experience. Definitely one off the bucket list. Felt totally safe and we got to see glaciers and lakes totally inaccessible any other way.
Take a 1.5-hour seaplane flight to Misty Fjords National Monument during this 2-hour tour from Ketchikan. Each passenger is guaranteed a window seat, and receives a radio headset to hear the pilot's commentary as you fly to Misty Fjords via Tongass National Forest. Your scenic flight includes a 15-minute stop on a pristine lake or salt water fjord for a direct experience of the Alaskan wilderness.
Make your way to Ketchikan where a bus transfers you to a nearby seaplane base to meet your pilot.
Receive a short safety briefing, and then put on the radio headset to hear commentary from your pilot during your flight. Take in aerial views from your guaranteed window seat as your seaplane takes off.
On the way to Misty Fjords National Monument, pass over the vast wilderness of Alaska including Revillagigedo Islands, Tongass National Forest, and Behm Canal. Look for wildlife as you soar over snow-capped mountains, deep fjords, waterfalls, and alpine lakes. Your pilot lands on a pristine lake or salt-water fjord to give you 15 minutes to experience the natural beauty up close.
Your tour ends after about two hours with return to Ketchikan.
