We cruised through Misty Fjords NM and found them overwhelming. The cliffs were so massive it was hard to get a grasp of their size until a float plane flew by. Unfortunately planes flew by every minute or two, spoiling the serenity of the fjord.

This is if you are into history, lots of information, for me it was not worth it fir $198 per person, almost every one in the boat where asleep on both ride. 2 hours of boat ride each way of nothing except listening to information....More

It's a fjord, but the entire rain forest through which you get there is carved by glaciers, it may be a little steeper slopes there, but it's not that special. The whale we saw on the way there was not in the fjord itself.

We took a catamaran out there but you can do it quicker by float plane. The scenery is spectacular. You see cliffs, trees, evidence of glacial activity. We saw it on a crystal clear day.

Had a great time on this trip. Boat in and float plane back...WOW. Both guides on boat and the Float plane were great. Amazing part of the world! Tracey our pilot on way home was amazing...one of the best flights we have had.

We flew with Misty Fjords airplane tours and enjoyed a seamless flight with a very personable pilot. Especially appreciated how well the flight went considering the remainder of my family had never flown on a small plane.

There is a way. Certain times during the season, outfitters from Ketchikan, Alaska offer "tourist for a day" pricing which is significantly lower than normal fares... keep your eyes on Ketchikan papers!!

No, we were on a cruise, but saw float planes land on the water. A beautiful spot.
