Times are changing — written letters are dwindling away and becoming more of a rare occurrence, with the boom of technology and all things digital. Testimonials and words of appreciation these days often arrive in the form of a Trip Advisor review or a Facebook message….
We’re so lucky to have Drew, Ketchikan’s very own “Bear Whisperer” as part of our Seawind Aviation team to guide our customers on our bear viewing tours. Watch the video for his message or read below. This is my ninth season bear guiding. My name…
Often we’ll go about our day, pick up that coffee on our way to work, buy those clothes from that store we always like, maybe make plans to do something exciting – like a seaplane excursion. But it’s not often we stop to think about how…
Hello Lesley, My husband and fellow travellers, Aurore And Doug R. took your Bear viewing excursion to Traitors cove on August 11, 2017. We would like to thank you for this wonderful excursion. Everyone that we encountered from your company was so friendly, knowledgeable and professional….
Starting in the month of May and until late September – early October, Humpback whales are a frequent sighting in the Ketchikan area. They migrate from the warm waters of Hawaii to the abundant feeding grounds of Alaska. Humpbacks have been spotted around Ketchikan swimming and…
“Dear Steve and Leslie,
Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip. Looking through the pictures we came home with, most are concentrated on our flight with you. Your staff was great, appreciate the drop off in the heart of town so we could get something to eat and make it to a couple of stores. Again, thank you.”

“We (Linda & I) often think of you and your family and wish you all the best. Just so you know, all our main memories and photos of our cruise back in September are of you guys and the tour you so graciously shared with us. We thank you for that. We still picture ourselves on that little island somewhere on a beautiful fresh water lake in the Alaskan wilderness, wow! Thanks again”

“Hello Lesley and Steve,
I promised to send you pictures of the brown bear we saw on our tour.
We have great memories of our trip! Thanks.”

“Exceeded all expectations!
SeaWind was awesome. From the super convenient pick-up at the cruise ship, to the friendly staff at the office to the actual flight. I witnessed the staff being super helpful and patient with customers that had mobility issues. The flight was amazing and included actually getting out at the fjord on a dock to allow for photos. The pilot was super friendly and knowledgeable. We had the ability to
actually talk via headsets while in flight to the pilot and the other passengers. The value for the price was exceptional. It was the highlight of our entire trip to Alaska and Canada. The folks at SeaWind were genuine, warm and down to earth… not a corporate or cold experience. Loved it!!!”
This is the third time we have flown with Steve over a 7-year period; and we would do it again tomorrow. His knowledge of the area and ability to find wildlife while flying is great! We have had three different experiences, taking the same tour three times.”
This was a top-notch experience from start to finish. I had several questions before we left home and Lesley responded quickly and cheerfully. Connecting with them in port went smoothly and before we knew it we were meeting Mike our pilot and climbing into the plane. I had never taken off from water before, but Mike is an excellent pilot and it was just like taking off from a runway. The views were breathtaking and well worth the cost. Definitely book direct from them rather than your cruise ship. You save big $$ and get to deal directly with them, which is a plus.”
