Our flight with Kevin was a highlight of our Alaskan adventure. He put us on a lake where I got out and stood on a pontoon. So pristine and beautiful. Jim and Abby have to love doing this for a living. Thank you.

Rolph's knowledge and enthusiasm for flying and the area was evident. If you only do one shore excursion, this was the highlight and should not be missed.

We had an amazing experience with Southeast Aviation! Our pilot, Rolf, flew us to Traitor's Cove, giving us an informative tour along the way and a glass smooth landing at this breathtaking location. Our guide and naturalist, James, provided us with an abundance of background and information on the bears before and during our tour. We spent almost two hours watching 7-9 bears and cubs feasting on salmon at the Margaret's Creek viewing platform. We felt very secure with Rolf's professional piloting skills, flying us through a misty rainy day and with James' abundant knowledge and protective eye as we encountered bears even on our walking trail. This was undoubtedly the highlight of our Alaskan cruise and we highly recommend Southeast Aviation! It doesn't get any better than this. Thank you to owner Jim for a truly memorable excursion!

My husband and I joined the 1.5 hour tour of Misty Fjords National Monument with Southeast Aviation. We had such an awesome experience. It was our first time to Ketchikan area and we couldn't have asked for a better time. The Misty is a once in a lifetime experience! Our pilot Solomon was not only a great pilot, but an awesome narrator and had so many great stories and tidbits about the area. The owners (and their sweet pup) were so kind and welcoming and we would definitely come back again when we are in the area. Thanks again for everything!
