I fish in Alaska each summer for a week or two. I charter with Misty Fjords to take our group to our fishing destination in Coffman Cove. We have always had great service with Misty Fjords, even going above and beyond this summer (2020) after our airline changed our flights

We had an amazing trip with Ryan and Alaska Seaplane Adventures. The Misty Fjord landing is like being alone in the wilderness. We were the only plane there and there was total silence. We flew over many waterfalls and miles of trees...and no people.

What a trip! - an incredible morning out flying over the stunning scenery around Ketchikan, and eventually landing on one of the lakes in Misty Fjords. Our pilot (Chuck?) was amazing - his commentary superb, as was his obvious love for the area, he even brought along his own

It was raining and there was very slight fog like always in Ketchikan, but zero wind, and they cancelled the flight. That’s normal Ketchikan weather and they are canceling the flight, it looks like you guys are all really lucky. I watched a video of this exact same one and it

Response from Misty Fjords Ai... P, Manager at Misty Fjords Seaplane Tour from Ketchikan
Responded 24 Aug 2019
Hi Traveler123456789- Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate feedback as it helps us improve. We take the safety of our crew and passengers seriously and cancel flights if conditions are unsafe or would be poor tour quality. The weather here in the Ketchikan harbor isn't always the best indicator of what the conditions are en route to and in the Misty Fjords National Monument. At the time of booking we request a contact phone number which is the number we call when a cancellation is announced. If there is no answer we leave a message as well as send an email to the address where the confirmation is sent. I would be happy to look into the day further if you would email us the date and time your tour was to take place.
