We flew with the mail run for 3 hours for a close-up, hands-on experience. It was great, and the pilot was great. We were lucky to get on a run with 5 take-offs and landings over on Prince of Wales Island. I would highly recommend this if you have the extra time to spend.

Booked this tour at the last minute and it was one of the best decisions we made. They came and picked us up at the cruise ship to take us to the marina. It was overcast but still beautiful. Our pilot Ben was very friendly and gave us a great tour. Got to land on the water and stand on the floats to take pictures. It's not cheap but a once in a lifetime adventure!

I don't like small planes, but I love adventure so I signed up for a Sea plane tour and crab feed. The crab was amazing, but the flight was even better. We had a beautiful day, so safety was not a concern. We flew over beautiful mountains, lakes and streams, and very close to the cliffs. The sea landing was amazing. I loved this experience. GO!

We decided to splurge and see Misty Fjords by air. The Taquan Air staff were exceptionally professional and their ternimal is very nice. The pilot was very skilled and since we had a beautiful day we were able to fly a little higher and further. It was a gorgeous trip and we thought landing on the lake and standing on the pontoons was a fun touch.

This was our favorite excursion of our cruise. Amanda, our pilot, was great and really is an excellent pilot. AJ the guide that showed us around the Tongass forest bear viewing is also very informative and you feel safe with him knowing he's a former law enforcement officer. The former bear habitat viewing site is located down river from some falls that is a bear feeding spot. We actually spotted a bear on the second leg of the trip up to a lake the rivers feed into.
We lucked out in their only being us (2) on the flight so it felt like a customized trip and was very comfortable with great views. The shop in Ketchikan is also very comfortable and they have a small area to pick up gear. I bought a souvenir t-shirt. They drove us back to the ship in a bus in time to make the departure. Glad someone was keeping track. :-)
