We did this tour as apart of the Disney Cruise to Alaska and it was the hands down the best of all the Port Activities we did. As this was our first helicopter ride ever we were a bit nervous but the staff were awesome and really helpful, as we took off from the base the views were fantastic as... More

We were cancelled from our original glacier tour that we booked on-board our cruise ship due to weather, but managed to book for a late afternoon tour with Era. Our pilot was engaging and we visited the Taku glacier for a walk and very informative talk. I would definitely recommend this company for glacier tours.

Our cruise ship called into Juneau and we went on the glacier ride with Era. The weather was coming down a bit and was starting to rain when we took off. The view over Juneau was great - even allowing for the misty clouds, then out to the glaciers. Forget Glacier Bay - the glaciers out of Juneau are really... More

When we were on Alaskan cruise we took Era helicopters for an awesome ride through glaciers and landed on Taku the only growing glacier.Exhilarating experience… Only advice I would give is if u r planning on doing a wildlife tour too.. take your heli-ride in afternoon. Because chances to spot wildlife is more in mornings than in afternoon. But it... More

Era fetched us at our hotel and drove us out to their location on Douglas Island, across the strait from Juneau; spotting bald eagles along the way. They had called earlier in the day to see if we wanted to change our reservation time as the weather was closing in and the later flight might not be possible. We had... More

Era helicopter landing on a glacier was the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. We loved every breathtaking minute and our pilot was so professional. This was by far our favorite excursion by a long shot. Nothing can ever compare to this.

Our flight with Era Helicopter Service was great! Our van driver was on time, courteous and helpful with information about the area. The ground crew were enthusiastic, friendly and efficient. We took off in less than 30 minutes to a spectacular ride! Our pilot had a great personality, was very informative and easy to talk with. An asset to Era,... More

This is one of those experiences that you remember forever, and Era did a great job of making it as memorable as possible! The pickup by the Era van very near the ship went smoothly, the safety briefing was brief, we were geared up and in our helicopter within 30 minutes. The ride to the glacier was incredible! The pilot... More

We flew over four glaciers in Juneau and walked on Taku. It was the most amazing experience of my life. The pilot was fantastic and afforded all of in the helicopter the most incredible vistas that took your breath away. While walking on the glacier the pilot made sure all of us were guided carefully across the ice. This excursion... More

My husband has mobility issues and uses a wheelchair. We were thrilled to find that Era helicopters can accommodate wheelchair users as they have a lift that slides up a track and transfers a person from their wheelchair into the helicopter. The trip to the Taku glacier was magic and when we landed on the ice the experience was out... More
