Alaska Seaplane Tours
Alaska Seaplane Tours invites you to fly the Misty Fjords with our family. Experience the beauty of our home, Ketchikan, Alaska, the magnificent Misty Fjord National Monument, and the Alaskan wilderness to a degree few every experience.
If you’re coming in on a cruise, we’ll pick you up and return you to the dock for your adventure. If you’re here for longer, we’ll help you plan a trip that meets your Alaskan vacation dreams.
We are a small family air service dedicated to giving you a thrilling experience of Alaskan wilderness. You’ll be flying in our beautiful, specially customized DeHavilland Beaver floatplane – the plane that made exploring and inhabiting Alaska possible. Experience the real Alaska, just the way the pioneers did!
Ketchikan Helicopter Tours
Your solution to exploring Alaska! Our tours are designed with our cruise-ship visitors in mind. We’ll pick you up at the dock and get you back in plenty of time, so you can brag about how cool it was to hover beside an 800-foot waterfall!
No other vehicle provides a more incredible viewing experience than a Ketchikan Tour Helicopter. Flying out of Ketchikan, Alaska, we serve our patrons with the highest degree of modern technology and safety. Our professional pilots provide seasoned direction, deep knowledge of Alaskan wilderness and wildlife, and great delight in sharing the land they love.
“There is no better platform from which to see Alaska,” says pilot Ryan McCue. “It’s an incredibly smooth ride, and it’s basically all window; it’s like being in an Imax movie, not just watching it.”
Alaska Zodiac Tours
Oceans remain the wildest places on the earth, providing the pathway to freedom from the hustle of our daily lives. Let our family share this authentic Alaskan experience with you: a Zodiac trip exploring part of Alaska’s Inside Passage leaving from our Ketchikan dock.
This two-hour trip will take you on a journey through the historic Tongass Narrows in your own personal watercraft. Your pilot, a long-time Alaskan resident, boater, and wilderness guide, will share naturalist knowledge and personal stories about the region and whatever sights you see. Inhale the fresh air, taste the true Alaska, and enjoy the escape.
This is an adventure/eco-tour for the spirited traveler! Rain, gusty winds, boat spray, and bumpy rides are very common. Though we can’t guarantee it, you’re likely to see marine mammals, migratory waterfowl, and Alaskan birds of prey. Whales, bears and eagle have all been seen from our rafts.
