Default Misty Fjords Wilderness Cruise & Flight vs. Best of Ketc

Hi all,
My husband and I are taking our 1st cruise and would like some feedback from people who have taken the excursions listed. The Misty Fjords is listed for a price of $285 per person and the Best of Ketchikan is listed at $99 per person. We don't care what we have to spend as long as the trip is worth the money since we don't know if we will ever get to do this again.
Thanks for all of your advice,

Book Misty Fjords yourself through Island Wings--Michelle is absolutely wonderful and will give you a complete commentary and has a passion for what she is doing. There are many part-timers and occasionals doing this also but you can't get a better guide than Michelle. It will cost you about $200 per person for two hours but insist on her to do it.

Taku lodge is nice, but I was ready to leave long before we did, very extended time dining. AND no, you won't find walk up space, this needs to be reservered ahead. But having done a lot of flightseeing in Alaska, a glacier helicopter landing is definately my preference.
