We went to Alaska on a cruise and was most looking forward to taking a helicopter to a glacier and walking around. We are from Florida and wanted to experience "ice" up close. We booked our excursion through the ship and half an hour before our tour they cancelled it because of weather. My husband and I were really disappointed.... More

Used their services for business related work, they always deliver! Thanks so much Coastal for your friendly pilots and flexibility in schedule changes. You should have given me that sweater for free though ;)

Thanks for giving the TripAdvisor community a peak into the other side of the business. It's great to know that our regular guests appreciate our services just like our one time visitors do, and that after repeated experiences, you still think we're doing alright. Our pilots enjoy the daily charter work every bit as much as the tour side, some... More

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I did the dog sled and glacier walk combo to Herbert Glacier - HIGHLY recommend. This was the most expensive one-shot thing I've done on any trip...ever. It was worth every penny. Never having been on a helicopter before, I was a bit nervous at first, but a few minutes into the flight and I... More

I fully recommend to hire Costal Helicopters Inc. The ride was smooth and beautiful sightseens. We landed at the Dog Sledge field and enjoyed the ride. We had time to take pictures and play with the dogs. Then we flew to the top of an Iceberg where we walked, drank water and took many pictures. Our guide and pilot was... More

Thanks for the recommendation! Our pilots and guides enjoy the tour almost as much as the guests they fly up, so it's awesome to find out you enjoyed your experience so much! The dog sled tour, coupled with the landing and walkabout is really the best way to experience the whole glacial landscape, and is quickly becoming one of our... More

Never having been in a helicopter before I was a little nervous, but the whole experience was amazing and well worth the expense! The staff was wonderful and seemed to really like what they do. Went to the dogsled camp and didn't want to leave; then landed on the glacier and got to walk around and take pictures. The dogsled... More

I did a lot of research before our Alaska cruise to select some amazing adventures rather than relying on the excursions offered by the cruise ship. The Coastal Helicopters adventure and options available were exactly what we were looking for. My family of 4 took Coastal Helicopters, with our chopper pilot Jeff, to the Herbert Glacier to do some dog-sledding... More

We were a group of 6 so we filled our helicopter. We were able to take the Plus version paying a small additional fee to fly further up the glacier to walk around after touring the dogsled camp.

Rather than purchasing the excursions through the cruise line directly, we found coastal helicopters online and we were SO glad with the trip. From the start, our driver, the staff who assisted us wutg the gear and the our pilot were so pleasant.

Our helicopter tour was excellent. The views were amazing and we saw white mountain goats on the top of a mountain. Landing on a glacier and tasting the running water was a once in a life time event.

Thanks for coming out on your tour with us! There is nothing as clean and clear as the glacier melt water that runs down from the upper icefields all the way down to sea level, and it's a real treat we like to share with our passengers.
