About Our Family
Alaskan Guide, Ryan McCue, originally founded
RdM Pilot/Guide to ensure his future working in the most remote areas of Alaska. Like the travelers, he caters to, Ryan is drawn to wilderness that remains untouched by the hands of man. Almost a decade later, Ryan and his outdoor patrons from around the world continue to pioneer and enjoy the endless opportunities of the Alaskan Bush.
Ryan has logged over 15,000 hours Alaska Flying Time throughout the Arctic and Southeast,
Alaska and has a perfect safety record.

He is also a commercial helicopter pilot and a certificated fixed wing and rotorcraft flight instructor.
Ryan 's love for this country has taken him many places including into the world of Alaskan Big Game Guiding.
Ryan is a registered Big Game Guide and has guided primarily brown bear hunts, although he has also guided moose,
black bear and caribou hunts.
(Ryan calling home in route from Anchorage to Ketchikan in early April.)
Ryan is an avid outdoorsman and loves spending time with his family in the wilderness!
Ryan could never run this operation by himself, and relies heavily on his wife, Loren McCue,
both as a business partner and mother of his children.
Loren came to Alaska 15 years ago on vacation, fell in love with the country, and never left.
She has worked as a graphic designer here in Ketchikan for the past 12 years and has designed many local businesses logos,
brochures and promotional packages.
Loren designed our website, logo, van, t-shirts, hats, brochures and all of our advertisements.
She also teaches art at a local elementary school during the winter months.
She is the creative side of our Alaska Seaplane Tours family.
Together Loren and Ryan work hard trying to spend time doing what they love, pioneering the Alaskan Bush!
When we're not working ...we're fishing, camping, hiking and flying with our children!

Meet Our Team
Marty, originally from Philadelphia, looks for any way to get into the real Alaska!
Seeing the potential in tourism and Seaplanes, Marty quickly became involved in the business by working for Cruise West,
(a local cruise ship company) organizing tours. He was a valued employee for them, but thankfully, he now anchors the
business end of Alaska Seaplane Tours!
Marty is a longtime friend and is so good at the job, that we no longer live without him!
Marty is an essential part of our team and our Alaska Seaplane Tours family!
As our business grew so did our need for another plane and more pilots. Our pilots are hand picked by Ryan and are
two of the best Alaska has to offer. We are lucky to have them!
Eric hails from Arizona and has flown with us for years. His love of flying and of Alaska brings him back every year!
He is a professional seaplane pilot and an avid outdoorsman.
Tom is a second generation Alaskan pilot. He was born in Fairbanks and lives in Bethel, Alaska.
He travels here to fly for us two weeks out of the month. He has lived and flown in the Alaskan
Bush since he was eighteen years old! We are lucky to have this blue blood in our family.
