We are a Helicopter Charter Service based in unique Juneau, Alaska. During the summers we devote a portion of our fleet of helicopters to running tours for visitors coming off of the many cruise ships that pass through our town, or visiting family and friends on an extended holiday. We offer a variety of tour experiences, all accessing parts of the scenic Juneau area via helicopter, to help give visitors the best memories of their time in Alaska. Our staff are locally hired, and trained to insure the most authentic vacation possible. Majestic mountain peaks and plunging crevasses will seem to be at your fingertips when you come with Coastal Helicopters Inc. on the adventure of a lifetime! With our vast reservoir of experience flying in Alaska, you're in for an unforgettable flight as our pilots take you on one of our specially designed tours. From racing across the face of the Taku Glacier in an Alaskan Airboat, to speeding over the glacier on your own dogsled, to simply basking in the awe inspiring vistas of the glacier with our Icefield Tours, there's a tour for everyone! All ages and conditions welcome! We are a handicap friendly company, outfit with lifts for ease of loading. Allow us to be your pathway to adventure when planning your Alaskan experience!

Very well run. The staff was friendly and helpful, the pilot was very professional and the aircraft was well maintained. The trip itself was nothing short of amazing. If you're thinking of a helicopter excursion, this is the best choice by far.

This was a spectacular excursion. We got up close and personal to the Glacier. Walking on the glacier was like nothing else!! Highly recommend these guys for your expedition!

This was the highlight of my family's Alaska Cruise. We went on a Disney cruise, but booked this one separately. It was just my family of 4 and Sean the pilot. Truly awesome experience and totally safe, professional and courteous. We spent about 20 minutes exploring the glacier and Sean took some pictures with our camera of us. I know... More

Thanks for bringing the family out! Incidentally private groups are always a big hit around here. Each of our aircraft is designed to carry up to 6 passengers, and we typically book our tours as efficiently as possible, but there are some times when it's just you, the pilot, and the wilderness for your tour, and it sounds like you...

Traveled on Solstice and independently booked glacier excursion with Coastal Helecopters. They were great, on time, efficient and reliable. We paid $280pp which is a substantial savings from booking through the ship.

CoastalHelicopters, Manager at Coastal Helicopters, responded to this review

Thanks for choosing to spend party of your day in Juneau with us! On ship bookings are understandably pricier than what we have to offer directly or even through our vendors, which is part of the reason we have maintained ourselves as the only strictly independent helicopter company in Juneau. And for those guests (like you) that are willing to... More

My daughter-in-law found this company on-line. They were very easy to work with and very efficient. Picked us up on the dock when Our ship arrived and drove us to the airport in Ketchican. It was a beautiful day and our experience on the glacier was a highlight of out trip to Alaska. Good company to work with.

Thanks for the great review! I'm hoping that you did get to enjoy a flight with us, but we're actually based in Juneau, not Ketchikan, but we'll gladly take the compliment either way! We do strive to make our online booking process, whether through one of our vendors or directly with us, as straight forward and headache-free as possible. Planning... More

An amazing trip to a very quiet glacier with a very knowledgeable and friendly pilot. An excellent trip which I would highly recommend

Thanks for your recommendation! Our pilots spend a great deal of time getting to know the environment they're operating in, both for safety and entertainment purposes so it's nice to hear that that was an pleasant addition to your experience. The tour itself is a spectacular adventure, but the pilots can really be the finishing touch that makes it a... More

Recently used this company for the dog sledding excursion on the glacier which was fantastic. The'musher' was so friendly and gave us a wonderful time. The staff at the helicopter office were a little indifferent which lets them down.

Thanks for sharing your experience with the TripAdvisor community! I'm happy to hear that your experience up at the dog camp was so great!

This tour is simply amazing. My family of four toured the Herbert Glacier and rode a dog sled. It was the best tour we've ever experienced. The pilot and guides were very friendly and knowledgeable, and the views were breathtaking.

CoastalHelicopters, Manager at Coastal Helicopters, responded to this review

Thanks for the great comment! Families of 4 are the perfect size for the dog sled tour, as each sled is built for 4 average sized adults, which means that you're just the right size for your own musher and sled team! Showing off the amazing scenery and landscapes of Juneau is a top priority for us, and it's awesome... More

We flew with Coastal Helicopters from Juneau to the Herbert Glacier. We had a fantastic experience from our pickup at the dock to our drop off in downtown Juneau, at a restaurant recommended by our driver (which was also excellent!). I was a little nervous about flying in a helicopter, but from the moment we stepped into Coastal Helicopters, the... More

We had 9 people in 2 helicopters, age ranging from 4 to 70. We all considered this excursion to be the highlight of our trip. The scenery was spectacular, breathtaking, and there are just no words to explain how cool it was to walk on a glacier, and drink the water fresh off of the ice. Our pilot, Drew, couldn't... More
