The gauntlet in the vistor's center was downright scary, but we had already booked our flight at Booth 19. They were very good, very professional, had a shuttle to take us to the site. The planes looked a little run down, but the pilots were both very good, very personable and very professional. Long walk down the ramp to the dock, not good for the mobility challenged, but everything went smoothly, all the people in the plane had great views, and the weather cooperated to the point of beautiful. Landing on the float in the mountain fjord was a good experience and the rain stopped and the sun came out while we were there. They are a family business with pride, they had their Trip Advisor badge proudly displayed, and I had no problem with giving them an excellent recommendation based on our experience. It was pretty much the highlight of our cruise.

Owner of Southeast Aviation is Jim Kosmos. Runs an excellent business, their meeting area for flights is booth 19 at the Ketchikan Visitors Centre which is also within walking distance from the cruise ship berths. Passengers are then transported to the plane by vehicle.

My wife and I booked this flight using the internet and Skype, liasing directly with Kos and Abby Kosmos. Very helpful and professional. We were on a cruise with half a day in Ketchikan. The plane is situated in the cruise ship berthing area and it was a very short walk from our ship.The pilot took us through some spectacular areas and gave a commentary using a microphone that came through head phones we were given to wear. Value for money is excellent and we would recommend this company to anyone wanting to enjoy the area by plane.

My wife and I were on the NCL Jewel on the Alaska cruise. We booked this ourselves. Southeastern Avation did a great job. They met us on the dock, picked up and got us to the shop quickly and explained what we were get to do. Every one was very friendly and helpful.

We actually stayed longer than advertised, had a chance to see mountain goats from the air, landed in a private lake and got to go ashore. Our pilot was great; obviously well qualified and expericed, chatty and informative.

We would certainly do this again.
