Our cruise ship sailed into the fjords in the morning and it was very scenic. Eagles and bears were spotted.

Seeing just a small area of Misty Fjords from a floatplane and being told to look out for all the water on the ground, made us realise what a huge area of beautiful wilderness this is.

By floatplane or by boat, the scenery in Misty Fjords will take your breath away. The scale of everything leaves you in awe. The beauty of nature is simply stunning!

Flew over this amazing place in a floatplane and the views will take your breath away. One of the best things to do in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Amazingly.wilderness at it's best.These Fjords have none to compare and it exceeds by lengths the fjords in Norway ,Europe when it comes to landing on lake by seaplane,watching waterfalls,mountain goats or the Bears. I would rate it in my opinion 10 times more beautiful than the Grand canyon.A.must see and a.lifetime experience.

I took a ride in one of the big boats here on a rainy, cold day, but still enjoyed the ride and the spectacular views of this National Monument. If you go, odds are good you'll see whales along the way, salmon jumping, a seal or two, and very likely some white mountain goats standing on the 1000 ft sheer... More

This was an amazing trip well worth the money. Ryan from Alaskan Seaplanes took us out here. He is a very capable pilot and we landed on a lake in the middle of nowhere to walk around and take pics.

Fantastic! Beautiful sights and amazing wildlife to look at. Ashley, our Naturalist, was super informative and incredibly sweet. The tour is a little on the long side, about 4 1/2 hours but you get to try some smoked salmon and you get soup! Highly recommend this tour, you won't regret it.

We went on an excursion with Island Wings to view the Misty Fjords. We had never been on a float plane before so wanted to have this experience. The scenery is stunning.

This is a highlight of the Ketchikan area. Ketchikan is not my favorite Alaskan town so this is something to go and do. Always note it is far away and a fast boat or plane tour is suggested.
