ShoreTrips says...

You will note, whether you arrive by land or cruise ship, that Downtown Ketchikan is dwarfed in summer by the white wall of the ships in port. This is not what you came to see in Alaska. Rather, the wilderness is your goal.

Your trip to the Misty Fjords will take you away from crowds and will amaze you with its extreme beauty, as well as its close proximity to the urban life of Ketchikan.

Upon arrival at our seaplane base, you will be greeted by your pilot who will personally assist you aboard your aircraft. After takeoff, the flight will pass through Ketchikan airspace en route to the Misty Fjords.

Join us on this once-in-a-lifetime experience and fly to the Misty Fjords National Monument. This pristine country is considered to be one of the last untouched landscapes on the planet and is guaranteed to overwhelm your senses.

During the flight you might even spot a variety of wildlife in their natural environment. The highlight of this trip will be landing in the heart of the Misty Fjords National Monument for a wilderness stopover to breathe the fresh air and take in the awe-inspiring scenery.

Your Executive Class Seaplane features an onboard audio entertainment system that includes ANR (active noise reduction) headsets to block out engine sounds, as well as voice-activated microphones for verbal communication with the pilot and fellow passengers. Your pilot will provide narration on this popular shore excursion.
