About This Ketchikan Tour
From high in the sky, you'll travel through a bird's-eye view of untamed beauty. With your nose pressed to the glass, you’ll gaze upon 3,000-foot walls of granite plunging into the fjords. Your tour guide will provide descriptions, anecdotes, and music through noise-cancelling headsets as you follow the route on a detailed map.
It took nature eons to craft this incredible landscape out of fiery volcanoes and icy glaciers. Your tour route is dependent on the weather. You'll experience New Eddystone Rock (the towering volcanic spire that gives clues to the fiery birth of this dramatic land) and Big Goat Lake to the South or Neets Bay and Belle Island Hot Springs to the North.
Four times the size of Rhode Island, the 2.3 million acre land of the Misty Fjords are deemed the “Yosemite of the North.” You’ll definitely understand why this top national monument is a tribute to the magnitude and majesty of the wilderness. Don’t forget to keep on the lookout for bears, wolves, moose, deer, mountain goats, eagles, and other wildlife that make their home in the majestic "Mistys."
The best part of your tour will be a thrilling water landing where you can step out on to the pontoon with your pilot and experience the fresh mountain air from the outside.
Please make your way to Ketchikan Visitor's Bureau-Rain Gauge, Berth II, located at 131 Front St., Ketchikan AK 99901. Provide a printed copy of your voucher upon arrival.
If the weather isn't cooperating, your pilot may change your departure time or route for safety assurance. Depending on the weather, a light jacket or sweater is recommended.
