Ketchikan, Alaska Misty Fjord seaplane options

Jump to last reply

My DH and I (in our 60's) want to take a seaplane in Ketchikan, Alaska during our cruise on Princess this July. I have read that perhaps a better option from going on the cruise sponsored excursion, would be hiring someone while in port as it might be a cheaper option.

The Princess website seaplane excursions in Ketchikan range from a 2 hr tour ($270/pp) to a 3.5 hr tour ($410/pp). The longer 3.5 hour tour includes a catamaran ride to start. My DH can get sea sick, so I don't know how smooth a ride the catamaran would be. Any suggestions as to the optimum length of the seaplane ride? Do they all land on fjord? We'd love to see some bears...is this possible on this excursion??

Thanks for any tips you may have!
