The town of Ketchikan, nearly 700 miles north of Seattle, is one of Alaska's first ports of call as you head north up the coast of Alaska. Surrounded by scenic waterways the area offers incredible views from the air of rolling green hills, dramatic bluffs and gorgeous waterfalls.
This 2 hour tour (3 hours including transportation) starts with a 30 minute flight of the surrounding countryside starting just outside of town. After meeting your pilot, you will hop on a small Alaskan bush plane, strap on your headset, and take off for commanding views from the air. Your pilot will narrate the trip, teaching you about the surrounding area and the history of the surrounding settlements. Your voice-activated headset will make communicating easy, so feel free to ask any questions.
After gaining a clear view and new appreciation of the beautiful scenery around Ketchikan, you will land on the other side of Revillagigedo Island for a 1 1/2 hour feast at the George Inlet Lodge where you will be treated to smoked Salmon by a cozy fireplace, salad tossed in house made oriental dressing, red potatoes roasted in olive oil and more sweet Dungeness Crab than you have ever seen in your life. After eating your fill you can wander the souvenir shop for gifts and mementos, explore the forested grounds surrounding the lodge or curl up back next to the fire with a glass of wine or a local Alaskan beer. Finish the trip with a fully-narrated drive back to historic downtown Ketchikan where you will be dropped off back at your hotel to sleep off the incredible feast or drop off your belongings before heading off on your next adventure.
