Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board in Washington DC are expected to arrive in Ketchikan later on Tuesday.

Both planes were from the same cruise ship, the Royal Princess.

The incident occurred in the vicinity of a popular tourist lodge that runs excursions to the nearby Misty Fjords National Monument.
