Ketchikan Shore Excursion: 90-Minute Fjords National Monument Seaplane Tour

activities / Guided tours

Tour description provided by Viator

Promising spectacular aerial views, this 90-minute seaplane tour is an exhilarating way to see the beauty of the Misty Fjords National Monument while you're in port in Ketchikan. You'll take in the untamed wilderness of the Misty Fjords, soar above Alaska's dramatic glaciers and fly over snow-capped mountains on this Ketchikan shore excursion. You’ve seen the Inside Passage from your cruise ship – now see it from the air!

The Misty Fjords National Monument is a 2.3-million-acre (920,000-hectare) piece of pristine wilderness that simply must be viewed from the air. A bird's-eye-view is the only way to truly take in the monument's majestic beauty and panoramic scale. What better way to spend your time in port in Ketchikan?

During this aerial shore excursion, you'll see soaring cliffs, saw-tooth ridges blanketed in trademark mists, sky-blue lakes, endless waterfalls and miles of glacier-carved gorges. If you are lucky, you might catch a closer look at creatures big and small, from burly brown bears to agile mountain goats, harbor seals to humpback whales.

Photo opportunities will be plentiful, as the seaplane makes a water landing for better views, ideal for taking photos to show off to your fellow cruise ship passengers who will surely be jealous that you chose such a fantastic shore excursion.
