List of Tours

The Misty Fjords National Monument is 2.3 million acres of blinding beauty that everyone who comes to S.E. Alaska should see. The five following tours involve flights in the Misty Fjords

On all our tours Our personable driver will pick you up at the cruise ship dock or your hotel and bring you to our dock and deliver you back at the end of your tour.

Misty Fjords Tour
What can we say about the Misty Fjords? I've done hundreds, maybe thousands of Misty flights and each one of them has been a different experience that you never tire of. It's beautiful in full bright sunlight and, well, when it's really misty and at all the stages in between. Hundreds of waterfalls, shear granite cliffs, trees growing everywhere, even out of shear rock. A wonderland formed through the millennium out of fire (volcanoes) and ice (glaciers), where you will see wondrous scenery and have a chance to see eagles, bears, deer, wolves, mountain goats, seals or maybe even whales. Perhaps that why this is our most popular flight.

This flight starts in Ketchikan and flies 15-20 minutes through the Tongass National Forest to The Misty Fjords National Monument. This tour lasts for 2 hours (our dock to dock, not cruise ship pickup to cruise ship dock, like most other's tours) and includes flightseeing through the Monument and a shore stop for 30 minutes on a wilderness Fjord. Your pilot, Dave will talk with you throughout the flight and make up answers answer any questions you may have.

$239.00 per person/2 person min./4 max.
$189.00 for children under 12 years old,
accompanied by two adults.


To reserve the plane for your party only - three person minimum.

Short Misty Fjords Tour

Same great scenery, just not so much of it and no landing. Tour lasts 45 min.

$179.00 per person/2 person min./4 max.
$129.00 for children under 12 years old,

Glacier/Fjords Tour
As you fly further North into the Misty Fjords the terrain becomes even steeper, the elevation higher and you come to an area dominated by glaciers. Everything we said about above tour applies to this tour with the added feature of the glaciers. So, in this tour you get to see the Misty Fjords on the way to and from a flight over and around the glaciers.

This tour last approximately 2.5 hours and includes flightseeing through the Monument and a water landing, with a chance to get out on the shore at one of the lakes or a Fjord in the Monument.

The weather is highly changeable in SE Alaska. In the event that the weather deteriorates and you are unable to view the glaciers this tour will revert to a Misty Fjords Tour and will be billed at the Misty Fjord rate.

$375.00 per person/2 person min./4 max.
$325.00 for children under 12 years old,

We provide a guide, transportation, equipment, and license. Total tour time is two hours our dock-to-dock.


$275.00 per person/2 person min./4 max.

KAYAK & MISTY FJORDS FLIGHTSEEING COMBINATION
Sea kayaking Orcas Cove and flightseeing the Misty Fjords National Monument are two great Alaskan experiences. Our 5 hour combination trip allows you to make the most of your time in Ketchikan by taking 2 tours in one - it's the ultimate Alaskan shore excursion. We depart our waterfront location and travel about 20 minutes by boat to remote Orca’s Cove. Here you will meet your guides and become familiar with kayaking. No prior kayaking experience is required, after a basic lesson we take off paddling amongst numerous islands, immersing ourselves in the surroundings while keeping a lookout for wildlife. Our kayaking time is about 2.5 hours after which we return to the mothership for a picnic of local caught and smoked salmon and hot drinks and then it's off for a flightseeing tour of the Misty Fjords National Monument.

$409.00 per person/2 person min./4 max.
$389.00 for children 6-12 years old,
accompanied by two adults.

To reserve the plane for your party only - three person minimum.


" The two trips we had with you (to Misty Fjords and to Waterfall Resort) were among the most memorable experiences of my 56 years. Your friendliness and humor and obvious competence were noted and much appreciated. I hope to bring my wife there next summer, and you may be sure that we'll book with you.

Very Best Regards,"
