Misty Fjords Tours by Floatplane

Our Misty Fjords Tour is our most popular! The Misty Fjords (Misty Fiords) National Monument is a 2.2 million acre park which was carved by glaciers some 10,000 years ago. During our 1 hour, 30 minute tour, you will see a myriad of crystal clear alpine lakes gouged out by those very glaciers. Saltwater fjords surrounded by sheer granite walls are alive with waterfalls cascading down thousands of feet.

Misty Fjords Flightseeing Tours

Halfway through the tour we will land within the Monument for a stopover. This gives you time to stretch your legs, take some pictures, and breathe in some of the purest air on the planet. Unbelievably scenery will surround you. This may be one of the most peaceful and breathtaking times of your life. This trip will be a memory you will long remember. An extra bonus during this flight are voice activated headsets. These give you the opportunity to talk with Jeff or your traveling companions while quiet music plays in the background. No boring pre-recorded tape explains what you are seeing in that irritating monotone voice! Jeff will be your personal tour guide throughout this amazing experience. He can answer your questions while sharing with you his beautiful home in Southeast Alaska.

I wanted to thank you for the brilliant time we had with Jeff when he took us to the Misty Fjords. It was a totally amazing experience and one all of us will never forget. One of the pictures that we took when we were on the pontoon we are having it blown up and put onto canvas it was so beautiful. Thank you too, for all the help you gave us up to the time we arrived, you were fantastic and should we ever venture your way again we will certainly look you up and take another trip. It was a real pleasure meeting you Laura, thanks again. ~ Sue Hayes

Ketchikan flightseeing and kayaking tours
Ketchikan Alaska kayaking tours

One of our favorite tours combines flightseeing of the Misty Fjords National Monument along with a guided sea kayaking experience out of Orcas Cove. The 5 hour combination trip allows you to make the most of your time in Ketchikan by taking 2 tours in one. Southeast Sea Kayaks picks up guests on the cruise ship dock and gets everyone outfitted for kayaking. We head straight out of town to Orcas Cove by boat, about 20 minutes away.

Ketchikan Alaska kayaking tours

No prior kayaking experience is required, after a basic lesson we take off paddling amongst numerous islands, immersing ourselves in the surroundings and keeping a lookout for wildlife. While it is impossible to predict what we will see on any given day, we often have the opportunity to observe nesting bald eagles or see playful harbor seals and we are always on the lookout for Orcas and humpback whales. Our kayaking time is about 2.5 hours after which we return to the mother-ship for a picnic of local caught and smoked salmon and hot drinks.

Watch as Jeff lands and taxis to the boat to pick you up. Our pilot helps you aboard the float-plane and takes off for the next leg of your adventure. In the floatplane, everyone has window seats and headsets so you can talk with your pilot as you fly to Misty Fjords National Monument. Viewed from the air, the 3000 foot granite cliffs and waterfalls of Misty Fjords are an incredible sight. A true wilderness with no roads or towns, the Misty Fjords National Monument is about the same size as the state of Connecticut. Ketchikan tour with Nooya Lake As you fly over Alpine lakes and old growth forest, keep an eye out for mountain goats and both black and brown bears on the ground. An exhilarating part of the trip is landing in the Misty Fjords and getting out of the plane to take photos and enjoy the extraordinary serenity of the Fjords. We drop you back at the cruise ship dock by van upon your return to town.
