Misty Fjords National Monument Flightseeing

Magnificent Misty Fjords by Wing

This tour is sold out for 2022

No Ketchikan cruise or visit would be complete without going on a flightseeing tour of the waterfalls and incredible Alaskan views of Misty Fjords National Monument. Every seat has a window as you embark on your private flight by floatplane through this iconic natural treasure in Alaska’s Inside Passage.  Keep an eye out for wildlife as you soar through the 50 to 70-year-old granite walls of the park which were naturally sculpted by ancient glaciers, centuries ago.

Your cruise excursion adventure begins here...

Day 1

Southeast Alaska’s Misty Fjords National Monument is just a short flight from Ketchikan, allowing you unbeatable access to this pristine wilderness area. Soar above this majestic work of nature with a unique personalized tour from the air. Three-thousand foot granite walls that are fractured by time and scoured by glaciers thousands of years ago, plunge thousands of feet into deep fjords. The misted mountains lift snowfields and wildflowers above the tree line. Waterfalls cascade out of rock clefts and disappear into the forest slopes. The lush mountaintops covered with ancient green trees clinging to the steep slopes while high valleys cradle picturesque lakes. Just when you think you have hit the peak of your experience, touchdown on a salt water fjord or mountain lake and feel the colossal beauty with all of your senses.

Learn all about the magnificent Misty Fjords through the live narration and conversation with your pilot. Every passenger is provided a voice activated headset that is designed for aviation and allows communication between you, the pilot, and others onboard. During each flight, we will touch down on either a remote mountain lake or a calm saltwater inlet. When the weather permits, we have the flexibility to alter itineraries and cater to personal preferences. This ability allows the opportunity to view nearby whales, watch bears fish in the wild, celebrate a special occasion or simply spend as much time as possible in this unique landscape.

Every flight is unique!  The pilot is often able to take the airplane to shore, giving you the opportunity to step out and enjoy the beauty, take priceless photos or simply breathe in the freshest, most fragrant air anywhere.  On the occasion that wildlife is close by, photo opportunities will be afforded right from the floats of the plane! By the time you begin the journey back to Ketchikan, you will have made memories to last a lifetime.
