Get the thrill of an Alaskan helicopter ride without the crazy price tag that normally accompanies, on the scenic Herring Cove Helicopter excursion! This affordable 20-minute flight takes you soaring high above Ketchikan and it’s home Island of Revillagigedo as you travel to Herring Cove, which features beautiful views and a salmon hatchery you will see from above. As your Herring Cove Helicopter Tour flies through the skies to its destination, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for breathtaking views of Ketchikan, totem poles, and possibly even wildlife. When it comes to helicopter rides in Ketchikan, you certainly won’t find views like this at a more affordable price!
As with all of our helicopter rides in Ketchikan, the Herring Cove Helicopter excursion includes convenient pick up right from your cruise docks. After winding your way through Ketchikan to the take-off location, you will receive a 10-minute safety briefing before hopping into the 7-passenger helicopter set to take you on your adventure. This time also includes the opportunity to take a photo with your pilot and the helicopter so you can cherish the memory for years. Once in the air, you will be treated to views of the diverse Tongass National Rainforest, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of some marine wildlife swimming through the Revillagigedo Channel, so have your cameras at the ready! Herring Cove sits at the far south end of Revillagigedo, so while many helicopter rides in Ketchikan will pass over it, they do not take the time to get a good look at the scenic inlet. With a Salmon Hatchery situated perfectly inside the cove, this is prime bear viewing territory! Though we cannot make any guarantees, keep your eyes trained on the water to see if you can sport a hungry bear looking for its midday snack. With multiple wildlife opportunities, a scenic flight, and a low price tag, the Herring Cove Helicopter excursion easily falls among the best helicopter rides in Ketchikan!
