View the majestic Misty Fjords National Monument by air...truly the only way to appreciate the grandeur and beauty that is home of some of Alaska's most impressive scenery.

After pickup right at your Ketchikan cruise ship pier, transfer a short distance to the floatplane dock. Here you will meet your pilot and after check in, board your DeHavilland Beaver floatplane. Everyone has a window seat on this 4 to 6 seater/passenger plane! Before you know it, you are gliding across the waters of the Tongass Narrows and lifting off into the sky. Watch Ketchikan disappear behind you as your pilot heads 40 miles (64 kilometers) east over the Tongass National Forest to reach Misty Fjords National Monument.

The monument covers about 3,570 square miles (9,246 square kilometers) making it more than twice the size of Rhode Island. Only by air can you fully do justice to this dramatic blending of land and water. From your window seat, you will be able to take in the ever-changing vistas while listening to the pilot's narration through your individual headsets. Follow your flight route on the provided detailed map and guide.

The Misty Fjords were carved by nature over tens of thousands of years. Massive glacier action created the majestic fjords, cascading waterfalls and the jewel-like lakes you will see. Fly past sheer walls of granite plunging over 3,000 feet (914 meters) into the fjords, over lush forests of spruce, hemlock, and cedar and look for wildlife crossing the snowcapped peaks.

The rugged Misty Fjords terrain is home to a multitude of wildlife. At lower levels, the astute observer may be rewarded with sightings of brown and black bear, Sitka black-tailed deer, wolves or a moose. At higher elevations, see bald eagles, and Big Goat Lake and its 1,000-foot waterfall. Named for the region's concentration of mountain goat, colonies of these marvelous high mountain creatures can often be spotted and photographed from the air.

One of the many highlights of your excursion will be an exhilarating water landing on an alpine lake or remote fjord. Step out onto the pontoon with your pilot to enjoy the fresh mountain air, the breathtaking scenery, and the feeling you have the world to yourself.

Then your pilot will take off and head back to Ketchikan for a waterfront landing where you will transfer back to your Ketchikan cruise ship pier.

Please note: The actual route flown will be based on weather and visibility conditions. Your pilot has the final word in these matters. There is a minimum of 4 needed to run the excursion.

Wonderful Experience
     5/5 Visited in May 2018

This excursion was the highlight of our Alaska vacation. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and pilot (Kevin). We saw "way more" than we ever thought we would. The flight seem to go on forever. This is the best shore excursion ever!

First time embarking on a floatplane. We flew over beautiful lakes, mountains, waterfalls. It was real exciting to land on the water and do some exploring. Beautiful and secluded place, it was perfect. The shaky nerves are soon replaced with amazement. Do not let fear keep you from doing this. It is safe and a very special experience.

Great way to see Alaska
     5/5 Visited in June 2017

The pilots were great tour guides. My husband and I saw waterfalls, a huge stone wall and we landed in a quiet place. Music in the headphones as you are flying over Alaska.
