Having been on 4 helicopter flights in the past 6 years I have to say Era provided on of the best flights I have taken. Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable, the company clearly takes safety seriously and was willing to provide anything you needed to enjoy your flight. My Wife and I took the flight to the Juneau ice... More

ERA Helicopters is simply fabulous. This was my 2nd time with them and my husband's first. We booked our 4 Glacier tour online ourselves directly with ERA which was way cheaper than through the cruise line for the exact same cruise. The booking process was easy and great customer service. We were picked up by bus close to the ship... More

We booked the excursion on our own because Princess didn't have any space for our group of four. They were amazing. What a great experience!! Would recommend to anyone wanting to see a glacier up close. The staff were very accommodating to my husband,(walks with crutches). It was raining when we landed but that didn't matter the scenery was beautiful... More

We were in alaska on a cruise and had read about the dog sledding excursion. Words can't explain how awesome and brilliant this was. A bus picked us up from the ship and took us to Era helicopters base. We were briefed about the flight and put life jackets on and boots that covered our own shoes. The flight itself... More

My husband and I were on the Princess Coral Cruise line and had a day in Juneau, Alaska. We were told NOT to book out tours on the cruise because we could get a much better deal at port. So we decided to take the advice and were glad we did!! We ended up taking Era for our helicopter your... More

My mom and I did this as part of our Alaskan cruise. I think it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We were flown out to the Taku glacier where we landed and were able to walk around. This sort of scenery just isn't found anywhere else. Truly unforgettable. The nitty-gritty-it's not cheap but how often do you go to Alaska???... More

This was my husbands first helicopter experience and I couldn't have chosen a better company to go with. They picked us up at the Denali Princess Lodge and we were 2 of 6 passengers in the helicopter. The pilot gave us a nice smooth ride and we enjoyed the trip. Bring your camera!

We were scheduled on to this trip by Holland America and it was our first shore excursion we were looking forward to it a lot. We were met at the dockside and bussed to the Era Helicopter centre where we were fitted with life jackets and glacier overboots. (Well, I wasn't as I have US size 16 feet but I... More

Everyone was great from the pick-up to the gear preparation and of course the flight! The views were phenomenal. Wonderful experience.
