Discover Misty Fjords National Monument by Floatplane
The Misty Fjords National Monument in Alaska has been carved to impressive perfection by millions of years of glacial activity. On this popular flightseeing Ketchikan day tour, it will take you only the blink of an eye to appreciate nature's handiwork.
The Misty Fjords National Monument is a 2.3-million acre piece of pristine wilderness that must be viewed by floatplane to truly take in its majesty: soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls, icy saltwater fjords and miles of glacier-carved gorges.
While you take in the enormity of the Misty Fjords National Monument from above, you will listen to information on the area, as well as appropriate music over your noise-reducing headphones. While taking you on the most scenic flight possible based on that day's weather conditions, your pilot will keep an eye open for wildlife below. While wildlife spotting is never guaranteed on the Ketchikan tour, keep scanning the scenery below, where you may see creatures big and small, from burly brown bears to agile mountain goats; from harbor seals to humpback whales. Depending on the visibility that day, your pilot usually tries to stay approximately 1000 feet above the scenery, offering you the best up-close view from a safe distance. Maximum altitude reached is approximately 4,000 feet above sea level. A water landing on a mountain lake for photos and reflection is included.
The Spectacular Misty Fjords Flightseeing Tour in Ketchikan is a must-see experience that will provide a lifetime of memories.
For safety reasons, talking to the pilot during the flight is not possible. Questions can be asked while at the lake landing and after the flight.
Total flying time, including the water landing time, is approximately 1.5 hours.
Please Note: Large bags and backpacks are not permitted on the aircraft, but can be safely stored in the office. Small purses can be brought on board the plane.

We were concerned the cloud cover was too low for a great view but visibility underneath was excellent and our pilot Kevin gave us a great tour and the clouds on the mountain tops seemed right for "Misty" fjords.

Our pilot/guide was very experienced and knowledgeable. He helped us see so many wonderful views, and the flight was incredibly smooth. The directions we received prepared us well for finding and enjoying the flight.

Our pilot Kevin was very good at telling us what we were seeing. And giving us history on the fjords as we flew over. I highly recommend this company.

Fantastic! Pilot and views were amazing. We stopped on a big rock and took in the views from there as well. Beautiful day. Pilot shared great input as well. Kevin was his name.

It was all good. The people were nice and well informed. The plane was clean and well maintained. The scenery was totally amazing and you couldn’t really experience this part of the world any other way. We loved it!
