On this tour you will:
  • Start with a 15-minute transfer to the waterfront base.
  • Board an authentic Alaskan floatplane and soar along the Ketchikan waterfront and the stunning wilderness of Tongass National Forest.
  • Discover Misty Fjords National Monument, the nation's second largest wilderness region. This area has been slowly crafted by nature over tens of thousands of years and spans nearly 2 million acres. The enchanted Monument offers dramatic sights on a grand scale, with sheer granite cliffs, waterfalls and crystalline glacial lakes. Approaching Rudyerd Bay, see New Eddystone Rock, a striking volcanic spire and remnant of early geological activity. Midway through your approximately 1-hour total flight, your pilot will land in a pristine lake or in the saltwater inlet of Misty Fjords, so that you can savor the incredible scenery, serenity and sweeping silence of this monumental wilderness while standing on the floats of the plane.
  • Be provided with headsets to listen to the pilot's narration, recorded commentary and complementing music, while viewing the passing scenery out of the large windows of the specially equipped floatplanes.
  • Arrive back in the base and take the short transfer back to the ship.
