Alaska Seaplane Tours invites you to fly the Misty Fjords with our family and team!

Experience the beauty of our home – Ketchikan, Alaska – and the Tongass National Forest.

As our business grew, so did our need for another plane and more pilots. Our pilots are handpicked by Ryan, and are two of the best Alaska has to offer. We are lucky to have them. Please scroll down to read the bios of our Alaska Seaplane Tours Team!

Ryan McCue

McCue is a certified Alaskan Guide. Like the travelers he caters to, Ryan is drawn to wilderness that remains untouched by the hands of man. He originally founded our company, RdM Pilot/Guide, to ensure his future working in the most remote areas of Alaska.

Ryan has logged over 15,000 hours Alaska Flying Time throughout the Arctic and Southeast Alaska. He has a perfect safety record, and safety will always be his first priority.

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 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 is an avid outdoorsman and loves spending time with his family in the wilderness!

Loren McCue

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, designing logos, brochures, and promotional packages for many local businesses.

Loren designed our 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 they’re not working, they’re fishing, camping, hiking, and flying with their children.

Marty Rush

Marty, who is 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 organizing tours for Cruise West, a local cruise ship company. 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 could no longer live without him. Marty is an essential part of our team and our Alaska Seaplane Tours family!

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. Tom 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.
