Awesome….amazing…would go again in a heartbeat!
Sep 2021
This was the highlight of our trip! What a great experience….Steve and Lesley are great to book with. We had a beautiful day in Ketchikan and the views were spectacular! When we climbed aboard they asked for a backseat volunteer….I jumped at it and boy was I glad I did. I was the only one back there so I was able to take pics from both sides… not that you can’t upfront but I didn’t have to reach over anyone. I had a lot of room..5”5. …climbing in and out was pretty easy as well…slow an easy on the steps. Landing on the lake was….so cool!… the lake was like glass, the pics we have show the reflection of the mtn & clouds on the lake…amazing. I’m actually still smiling from the experience! I would highly recommend you book with SeaWind Aviation.

Boyhood Dream Come True
Aug 2021 • Solo
My first time in a De Havilland Beaver Aircraft. Boyhood dream. On my bucket list. My wife, Cindy, set up the tour for me. Lesley and Steve were great. The flying and tour far exceeded my expectations. Felt like a kid again and I am 66 years young. If you’re in Ketchikan, Alaska go fly with SeaWind Aviation. Great Company!

The Highlight of our Alaska Cruise
Aug 2021
Seaplane tour was an amazing way to experience the beauty of Misty Fjords! Scenery was stunning throughout the flight. Landing on a lake with the chance to get out on a small lake was a true highlight. Seawind also coordinated with us on our flight time since or cruise ship arrived late, picked us up at the NCL Ward Cove dock, dropped us in Ketchikan after the tour, and later took us back to the ship. They were also easy to get a hold of via phone.

A must do
Aug 2021 • Couples
Absolutely breath taking. We flew low enough to get a great view of everything. Our pilot circled the main features to make sure both sides of the plane got to see. The island stop was so beautiful and really gave us time to absorb everything around us.

Customer Service left much to be desired!
Jul 2021 • Couples
We had a truly beautiful flight out to Misty Fjords today with an excellent pilot but some very rude behavior by one of the employees at the office left us wishing we would have gone with a different operator. After our flight was over we asked if it would be okay to leave our luggage in the office while we grabbed lunch. We came back to pick it and paused on the gangway to admire a lovely group of seals who were hanging out on the dock. After a few minutes a dark haired man came out of the office and angrily yelled at us, “You need to get out of here, you can’t be on the dock.” I told him we were there to pick up our luggage and he said “I know but you need to leave. If the FAA saw you on the dock it would be my ass”.
If it’s an important rule, then put up a large sign and if you need to ask customers to move, ask in a friendly, polite way. Having an employee aggressively holler at me after spending $750 on plane tour tickets definitely left a bad taste in my mouth. It’s also worth noting that the free shuttle pick up advertised on the website seems to only applies to the cruise ship docks. We were in town on a sailboat and weren’t able to get a pick up at a marina that was 15 minutes down the road or a ride to the airport afterwards.

Hello Abigail, I'm mortified reading about your experience with us! This is not acceptable by our company. The employee has been dealt with, and I apologize about the driving also. I offered to take you to the airport ferry when you returned after eating, and then was not here when you returned later. I tried reaching you by phone the other day and then sent an email to you directly. I know your sailing, but hope that you receive that. I'm sorry about our experience and hope you do return to Ketchikan. Take care, Lesley

Simply stunning
Jul 2021 • Family
We flew with Eric on a Mistry Fjords floatplane and it’s beautiful. The whole flight was so beautiful and pictures don’t do justice. My daughter was given the co-pilot seat and that was special for her. We did it book in advance, and Danielle worked hard to make it happen for us. It’s expensive, but so worth it!!

Excellent flightseeing with pilot Steve
Jul 2021
This was a highlight of our Ketchikan visit. Owner and local pilot Steve is a personable and fun guide who gave us a great afternoon flying through the Misty Fjords. We put down on a little island in one of the lakes to enjoy the scenery and take photos. The Misty Fjords did not disappoint! Highly recommend!

Experience of a lifetime!
Jul 2021
We did a lot of things while in Ketchikan for the week including two days of fishing. Of the 6 of us on this trip, all said that this flight tour was by far the best part of the entire trip. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime and cannot be missed. The professionalism and preparedness of the pilot and crew were outstanding.

We did not come off a cruise but were staying in town. Staff was very helpful in coordinating pick-up and delivering us back. It was a great flight and our pilot was fun and informative. We were very lucky with the weather - clear beautiful (but warm) day
