Combine Ketchikan's spectacular scenery with mountaintop flightseeing and an authentic Alaskan seafood feast at a five-star fishing resort.
A De Havilland Beaver floatplane aircraft roars to life, and you take off from the water with an individual headset and a guaranteed window seat. Glide over the Tongass Narrows, viewing bustling communities and Southeast Alaska's sprawling wilderness below.
Watch for remote indigenous communities, abandoned mining towns, high alpine lakes, breathtaking snowcapped mountains, the lush green Tongass National Forest, and the beautiful blue water of the Inside Passage.
The tour operator has an exclusive right to land at Salmon Falls Resort beside the tranquil waters of Clover Pass Inlet. Here, you'll step inside the lodge for a warm welcome. Photograph the famous waterfall, savor a delicious meal in the Timbers dining room with a salad, salmon lox crostini, local seafood including Dungeness crab cake, salmon and halibut, and an Alaskan beer or wine of your choice. Berry cobbler with streusel topping provides the perfect conclusion.
A beautiful 25-minute coastal drive provides a glimpse into Ketchikan's vibrant waterfront community as you return to the ship by road.
