Ketchikan is well-known for its flightseeing tours to Misty Fjords National Monument, and this is the classic float plane option that is one of our top-choices for things to do in Ketchikan. An area that is best accessed by air, Misty Fjords is a geological paradise encompassing 2.3 million acres of glacially carved cliffs and pristine, preserved wilderness. Enjoy it all from your window seat for an unforgettable plane ride that is as adventurous as it is scenic.

With a convenient pick-up location within walking distance of the cruise ships, a quick transfer brings you over to the plane base where your pilot and float plane are awaiting your arrival. A short video orientation equips you with the info you need, then head down to the docks to load up and get settled in - everyone gets a window seat! As the pilot cranks up the ignition and begins lining up, the excitement of a water take-off definitely starts to kick in.

Within minutes, you're soaring over Ketchikan and the surrounding area and getting a grasp of the terrain and orientation of this landscape. Settle into the sights with narration provided via headset, as information regarding the history, geology and ecology of the area complements the scenery below. Before too long, the characteristic cliffs marking the entrance to Misty Fjords come into view, and the pilot will navigate over alpine lakes, deep fjords, past cascading waterfalls and next to unique 3,000 foot cliffs carved out by thousands of years of glacial movement.

Get a first-hand experience of this remote wilderness that John Muir once described as "hopelessly, over-abundantly beautiful for description." Once back at the base, you'll receive an Alaskan bush plane certificate - a perfect token to remember this amazing area and experience.
