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

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. First the port pick up, transportation to the check in and the check in process. 100% perfect! Helicopter ride, I was worried... More

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. The helicopter ride was enjoyable and the guide offered plenty of time to take pictures and answer... More

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. We filled our water bottle and the water was fresh a day later. Coastal Helicopters was very professional and our pilot was... More

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. I hope you got to share your bottled goodness with everyone back home... More

I'd always wanted to see Alaska, and Coastal Helicopters made my vacation unforgettable. What an amazing experience! I don't like heights or flying, and I was placed in the front seat with the pilot! Within seconds, I was completely at ease and enjoying the magnificent scenery. The entire staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. I absolutely give this company... More

One of the best experiences while visiting Alaska. Landing on glacier and be able to step out and experience the vastness of it all. Ice, silence, the greatness of God's creation
