Soar over the Tongass Forest and Inside Passage waters on the exclusive Ketchikan Combo Helicopter Tour. On this journey through Alaska's Southeastern skies, you will fly across Revillagigedo Island to the plummeting Mahoney Falls, before turning south to the beautiful Annette Island Reserve, which this tour has exclusive rights to explore. After getting your fill of beautiful scenery from the air, your tour will then stop for a landing atop the northernmost peak of Annette Island for 10 minutes to explore the stunning landscape and gaze out at the Inside Passage, far away from the cruise ship crowds! And, keep your eyes out on the return journey to see if you can spot any of Southeast Alaska's marine wildlife!

Your Ketchikan Combo Helicopter Tour begins right from the cruise docks where your guides will pick you up for the drive through beautiful Ketchikan to the helicopter take-off location. Here you will receive a 10-minute safety briefing, then you are ready to go! Right from take-off, you will be greeted with stunning views of the Island of Revillagigedo on your way to Mahoney Falls, before flying south along the beautiful Inside Passage to the Annette Island Nature Reserve.

The Annette Island Reserve is an ideal location for getting away from the crowds, as it takes special permitting to reach this secluded spot. As you reach the reserve, you'll land atop the peak for 10 minutes of landscape exploration, stunning views, and fascinating tales from your guide. Be sure to have your cameras, you'll want to grab a group picture at this beautiful landing site! From here, your journey back to town will be just as beautiful, and a great opportunity to see the marine wildlife that makes Southeast Alaska so unique and special. This tour includes drop off right back at your cruise docks so you can be sure to have a worry-free and exciting day on your Ketchikan helicopter tour!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the flights ever get canceled due to weather?
Yes, safety is the number one priority so weather conditions are taken into account for each departure. In certain cases, the weather can lift and a slight delay will still allow the flight to continue. However, if a flight is canceled completely due to weather circumstances, you will receive a refund less any non-refundable fees.
What if our cruise ship's schedule is canceled or delayed?
We will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, then you will receive a refund, less any non-refundable fees.
How big are the helicopters?
There are a few types of helicopters used for the tour, and you'll typically be in a group of 3 guests on the flight. Multiple aircraft will be used for groups larger than this.
Can you see wildlife from the helicopter?
If you have sharp eyes, it's certainly possible to see wildlife on the mountains below. The helicopter flies low enough to distinguish individual animals, but of course the pilots have to respect local wildlife so it's not an objective of this tour.
