Ketchikan in May: Best Flightseeing Tour?

Recommended Posts

We are docking in Ketchikan on May 17 this year. I am seeing Flightseeing Tours and wondering if other cruisers have suggestions on their favorite picks, or what is the best bang for the buck...based on your experiences.I know nothing is cheap, and this may be our last cruise to Alaska, so want to see everything we can. I would like to surprise DH with this excursion, do you CCers think that is a good idea? Or I better tell him now?:confused:


I have studied and researched and I'm just not sure, but want to book quickly before they are sold out. Your thoughts my friends?

If you are wanting to go to Misty Fiords, Michelle with Island Wings seems to be very popular.

I used Dave with Family Air. For early booking he has a buy 3 get the 4th free special (not sure if he's doing that this year). It was great since we had 4 people. A private tour at 25% off.

Michelle at Island Wings is great. Too early for her bear excursions but we've done Misty Fjords with her and it was great. We actually did make a stop and while we were on land we saw a bear pretty close. Doesn't always happen but you never know when you'll get lucky!

Thanks everyone, sorry I did not say that before. We have booked with Island Wings, they are so professional on the phone. I decided I could not commit the $$ without DH being okay with it - we are a team. We are renting vehicles in Juneau and Sitka for our sightseeing. It just seems more logical, and much cheaper than excursions.

I also thought Michele with Island Wings was very good. Even better if you are stopping in Haines or Skagway is a fight over Glacier Bay with Mountain Flying. They are based in Haines but do flights from both places. Much more spectacular scenery than Ketckikan IMHO

DH and I went on Island Wings several years ago! Would totally recommend and fly with her again. Super professional and safe and absolutely breathtaking.
