Simply the most amazing experience and the most awesome sight when we landed on a glacier. It is just like the pics on their site, white,aqua blue,sparkling,crunchy underfoot,and not cold to be there on a sunny day. The neatest tour I've ever done- between my first helicopter ride, going up over very high snow covered peaks and finally the glacier.... More

Amazing views on our flightseeing tour. The pilot took us over glaciers and we landed on top of one! After some instruction of wearing spiked snow shoes. We hopped out of the helicopter and got to walk around on the glacier. Our guide was fantastic. It was kind of pricey but after our whale watching experience we were happy

My wife and I did the Vancouver to Whittier cruise recently aboard the Coral Princess. At Juneau we decided to do the dog sledding at Herbert Glacier. It was a wonderful experience and the highlight of what was a pretty amazing holiday. The staff were fantastic from the moment we were picked up from the cruise boat. I have been... More

Thank you Shore Excursions for offering the best of the best! Coastal Helicopters and Blue Kennels provide excellent tours and amazing guides! Coastal staff picked us up at the cruise ship dock and was very organized. The drivers made sure all the guests were on board! When we arrived at the heliport, we were outfitted with glacier and dog sled... More

I booked this excursion because it sounded like a lot of fun and the people I spoke to that had already done this highly recommended it. I have to say this trip exceeded all of my expectations! The people at Coastal were great. Very friendly, accommodating and professional. Our chopper pilot Luke was a great tour guide, giving us lots... More

I just want to say the tour and experience at Herbert Glacier with Blue Kennels was one of the most memorable activities I did while in Juneau this summer. The respect and care that are given to these beautiful dogs by everyone including Kyle made an impression on me that I will always hold close to my heart. These dogs... More

An incredible experience and the highlight of our cruise. We skipped the Mendenhall Glacier and did a 2 hour helicopter tour of numerous glaciers in the area and landed on the Norris Glacier, which is the largest in the area. The views and vistas are just unbelievable. We were very pleased with Coastal Helicopters. The ride in the 5 seat... More

My husband and I recently cruised the Inside Passage of Alaska. Like all cruise ships, ours offered a variety of land excursions in each port - too many to chose from. At a friend's recommendation, we independently book a Coastal Helicopters' Icefield Excursion. It was, by far, the most amazing experience of our vacation! Our pilot was funny, insightful, and...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us! The cruise line definitely offers a plethora of different tours for all shapes and sizes, all great quality and certainly memorable, but for those passengers that want to look beyond the cruise ship offerings, we're ready and waiting! Word of mouth is our favorite way for passengers to find out about our... More

Helicoptor ride to Herbert Glacier was amazing. Pilot gave a witty and insightful tour as we flew over Auke Bay and the forest. Actually walking on the glacier was incredible. I highly recommend to anyone visiting juneau!

Thanks for leaving your impressions with the Tripadvisor community! Also, thanks for pointing out some of the lesser noticed, but still amazing scenery we have to offer up here in Juneau. The focus of our glacier tours is, obviously, the glacier itself, with the opportunity to fly over it, and land on it, the helicopter tour really gives a complete... More

We were lucky in Juneau and had the best excursion ever!. ALL the Princess booked dog sledding tours to Mendenhall were cancelled due to low cloud coverage. I was so happy that I had booked our glacier dog sledding (birthday celebration for our oldest 8 year old Grandson) independently with Coastal Helicopters to Herbert Glacier. It was such a highlight... More

Thanks for your great comment! I'm glad to hear that our careful selection of a location for our dog camp paid off for you! The Herbert Glacier tends to hold it's good weather quite a bit longer than other glaciers in the area, and since we're the only helicopter company is Juneau that regularly conducts it's landings there, it's a...
