View the majestic Misty Fjords National Monument by air...truly the only way to appreciate the grandeur and beauty that is home to 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 bears, 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 goats, colonies of these marvelous high mountain creatures can often be spotted and photographed from the air.

After this once-in-a-lifetime experience, your pilot will return to Ketchikan for a waterfront landing where you will transfer back to your Ketchikan cruise ship pier.

This flight knocked our socks off. We took off in the water, exciting. The flight was as advertised. Our pilot, John, was great and knowledgeable. The views and scenery were spectacular. We would do this again and highly recommend this excursion. Thank you!

Some investments really worth it in life, definitely, this excursion was one of those good investments. Simple, there is no other way to admire the magnificence of the fjords landscape than this. It is just beyond beautiful.

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!

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.

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.
