On our Alaska trip, one of the things I wanted to do more than anything else was to take a float-plane trip. I looked at the recommendations on Trip Advisor and started making arrangements for a booking. Well, here's a tip. Don't wait until the last moment to book your float-plane trip. Not a good idea, as a lot of... More

We arrived on the Celebrity Solstice but booked this trip directly before leaving Seattle. It offers a better value, longer flying, and a nice landing in the national park that the cruise ship operators don't. The owners and pilots are friendly and very knowledgable of the area. I would certainly recommend doing this in Ketchikan and after take a walk... More

Amazing is the only word to describe for our experience with SeaWind Aviation. From the scheduling of our flight to the most beautiful scenery you can ever imagine, our trip to Misty Fjords was outstanding. Though I must admit a couple of us seniors were a little concerned about the small plane, it was a very smooth and pleasant ride.... More

We booked this at the last minute and are SO glad we did. They are a small operation and you feel it when you book and travel. The person who took the booking was one of the owners and our pilot was her husband! The views were out of this world and the journey is spectacular. Suitable for seniors and... More

Normally, we would have booked the float plane tour through Holland America before we left. However, we weren't certain the weather would be good for flying, so we waited until we arrived and arranged for the trip ourselves at the dock. Our pilot Steve was very warm, welcoming, and an amazing pilot. He gave us a very smooth take off,... More

Terry and Leslie were very accommodating as we had a large group of people. They were very prompt and picked us up directly from our cruise ship. They had very reasonable prices and were very hospitable. The views were amazing and our pilot did an amazing job flying the plane.

Lesley and Steve Kamm were the first locals that we met in Ketchikan. They own SeaWind Aviation and offer float plane tours of the Misty Fjords. Friendly, kind, and gracious. Lesley was a welcomed personality from the other "salesmen" characters we encountered peddling other experiences. Steve was our pilot and the next two hours were as amazing. Unforgettable feeling of... More
