We have a trip on the Coral Princess the first week in June. What is the one "don't miss" air excursion in Juneau and Ketchikan? With so many to choose from its difficult to decide. Not so interested in landing but just to fly over - which one? HELP

Hi Mark,
For me it would be a toss up between the Juneau Icefields and Misty Fjords. But, half the enjoyment of the Juneau Icefields is the glacier landing and walk. So, if that is not what you are interested in, for the most spectacular views take a flightseeing tour to Misty Fjords from Ketchikan by floatplane. Absolutely fantastic!!!

I did a search on Misty Fjords and several companies were listed. The hard part is deciding on which one as they all seem to be very good.

I can highly recommend Seawind Aviation. Here is a link to a review that Tom wrote for PortReviews on a trip we took with them:
