“We were very happy with the trip—I was literally grinning the entire time, it was so fun! So this year, when we planned a return trip to Alaska, including Ketchikan, I looked them up and was pleased to see that they were still there and evidently thriving, with more planes and pilots. We had a different pilot this time, same plane, and loved the trip just as much if not more! I highly recommend them!”— TripAdvisor Review
“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!— TripAdvisor Review
“SeaWind Aviation provided a great trip to the Misty Fjords. It was a perfect weather day and Steve was a wonderful guide and pilot. Our first trip on a seaplane and it was all I could imagine. Jill is great to book your trip and very knowledgeable about the area. These are all local residents who know lots about the area. This is a must do! You will not be disappointed!”— TripAdvisor Review
