I was planning on taking a floatplane/flightseeing tour in Ketchikan with Michelle at Island Wings. We are currently reserved for 8 -10. I was just reviewing some of the boards and notice that kayaking is another favorite touring option. We are taking a helicopter tour in Juneau and a flightseeing tour of Mt. McKinley in Talkeetna. I cannot decide if I should stick with the flightseeing in Ketchikan/Misty Fjord or cancel and book a kayaking tour with South Seas Kayak. The ship is only docked from 6:30 - 2:30 - so unfortunately we won't have time to do both. South Seas Kayak tour is 4 hours.
Has anyone done both? Any preferences? Any suggestions???
Yes I have done both, several times. A factor may be your flying experience??? My opinion only but I always give an edge to flights- just my priorities. I also suggest a summit flight of McKinley, again my preference over the summit view flights. - the most costly but superior in my opinion.
I don't know the cost or who does this or the time needed (a lot of help , huh?) but when I was there I took the floatplane tour (Which I loved) but another couple took a tour where you floatplane into the "Mistys" but take a boat out. I saw their pictures and that look pretty cool. But as I said, time constraints could limit that one.
