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!

We were all first-timers, but we all felt comfortable and secure with Sean our helicopter pilot. From the check-in to the van ride back, everything was very professional and enjoyable. Cannot describe the experience of landing on the glaciers - amazing seems too tame - fantastic, incredible, awe-inspiring. Highly recommend the trip, and Coastal Helicopters. We first saw the glaciers... More

Make sure to book a trip with Coastal Helicopters at Juneau! It is surely the best way to experience a glazier! The scenery was absolute breathtaking - what a honor to appreciate the beauty and awesomeness of God's Creation! The stop on the glazier was amazing - with the best water you will ever taste!

our pilot Drew brought us to Hebert glacier instead of the over commercialized Mendenhall. we were the only people on the glacier. the entire excursion was a once in a lifetime trip and Costal helicopters made it possible. we booked this trip directly, avoiding the cruise ship; best thing we did.

This is a spendy little excursion, but it is an experience you will never forget. I've been all over the world and seen all kinds of things, but flying right over these massive glaciers and then getting to actually land and walk around on one way like nothing else on earth. It was truly incredible! The staff at Coastal Helicopters... More

My husband and I recently returned from a 7 night cruise to Alaska's Inside Passage. Because of the expense, we booked only one shore excursion in advance. When I saw "dog sled ride on a glacier" I knew that was the one. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The helicopter ride (our first) was great fun and the pilot,... More

We went on a helicopter dog sled tour with them. Very well organised and the shoe covers worked and fitted well. Simply amazing views from the helicopter and we had a great time. The dog sledding was lots of fun and the isolated location really made it feel special. We were surrounded by mountains completely covered by snow, a view... More

Everyone was great to work with from the van driver to the pilot, we got that best customer service you could ask for. The experience of walking around on the glacier and the flight was the best part of our trip. We booked the flight through Coastal's website and everything was just as described, all the staff went out of... More

Thanks for leaving us such a nice review! All of us here really appreciate the fact that visitors to Juneau are often on a very short schedule, and want to maximize their time spent in town as much as possible! So we strive to not only provide an excellent customer service experience here, but also provide stellar recommendations for other... More

We booked the extended dog sled tour in Juneau. I was apprehensive because of the cost but can truly say that it was worth every penny. Everything about it was first rate. My teenage kids and I will never forget this adventure. It was by far the most exciting part of our Alaskan trip.

The highlight of my Seattle-Alaska cruise.Was expensive, but worth the every penny. Made reservation 6 months in advance and made sure that dog sledding was in the snow., not on wheels. They say its a 2 hour tour, but from start to finish we did not get back for over 3 hours, which was great. We were very lucky, weather... More

We had not booked a tour for Juneau and decided to just find something on shore. After doing some research we decided the Coastal Helicopter tour was the best for our family based on price and the fact that unlike most tours that go to Mendenhall glacier, this company can go to whatever glacier they would like. We booked the... More

Thank you for sharing your great experience and pictures with us!
