Got to fly in a float plane to and from Waterfall Resort. The staff at Taquan was both friendly and helpful. I enjoyed getting to visit with them and they took excellent care of me.

I can't tell you the feeling I had flying with Chuck on the floatplane from Misty Fjords back to Ketchikan. The scenery, the information, the amazing music. Thank you for the most memorable 30 minutes of beauty I can ever remember!

Probably the same. The misty fjords are the main thing. Highly recommend taquan.
Which would be a better float plane tour for first timers to Alaska: Ketchikan Misty Fjords or Juneau ice fields? We'll be in Ketchikan this Tuesday, June 7 and I see the weather is suppose to be clear. Thanks for your thoughts!
