SeaWind Aviation is a family operation committed to providing the finest of Alaska, including flight seeing in the Misty Fjords, viewing wildlife on a bear viewing tour, fishing or enjoying crab feasts, or by simply embarking on an air charter in the Southeast Alaska panhandle.
Our Alaska based business was founded on experience and knowledge that dates back through generations of seaplane and floatplane adventures. Seawind Aviation has been a top rated tour operator since inception and we invite you to experience the difference of our airline in Ketchikan.
What we'll do
Southeast Alaska’s Misty Fjords National Monument is just a short flight from Ketchikan, allowing you unbeatable access to this pristine wilderness area via seaplane.
Soar above this majestic work of nature with a unique personalized tour from the air. 3,000 foot granite walls that are fractured by time and scoured by glaciers thousands of years ago, plunge thousands of feet into deep fjords. The misted mountains lift snowfields and wildflowers above the tree line. Waterfalls cascade out of rock clefts and disappear into the forest slopes. The lush mountaintops covered with ancient green trees clinging to the steep slopes while high valleys cradle picturesque lakes.
Just when you think you have hit the peak of your experience, your floatplane will touchdown on a salt water fjord or mountain lake and feel the colossal beauty with all of your senses.
