Waterfalls cascade out of rock clefts and disappear into the forest slopes. The lush mountaintops covered with ancient green trees clinging to the steep slopes while high valleys cradle picturesque lakes. Just when you think you have hit the peak of your experience, your floatplane will touchdown on a salt water fjord or mountain lake and feel the colossal beauty with all of your senses.

Your pilot will call your attention to any spectacular Alaskan wildlife often seen in the monument and the Tongass National Forest. Sightings may include brown and black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles, orcas and humpback whales. On the occasion that wildlife is close by, photo opportunities will be afforded right from the floats of the plane! By the time you begin the journey back to Ketchikan, you will have made memories to last a lifetime.

“We loved Misty Fjords with SeaWind Aviation!”

“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!”

“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!

“Fabulous trip”

“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!”
