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...

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!

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

We booked this independently from our cruise ship. It was a better deal for the money being paid. All the cruise ones cancelled because of the weather. We were so happy to get to go on this once in a life time experience. They were safety minded and handled the sleeting weather and delivered a positive exciting adventure. We had... More

Had an absolutely perfect helicopter glacier tour with Coastal. We were on the Millennium Celebrity cruise ship and every tour that was booked (with other companies) through the cruise was cancelled. It was an overcast day, but as Coastal flies to a different glacier, and only cancels by the hour (not entire morning / afternoon) we were able to fly.... More

My daughter and her friend went on the Glacier/dog-sledding tour and they loved it! She was very impressed with everyone involved and had an awesome experience. I recommend everyone do this if they have the time.

A week before our cruise departure, I decided to book the Icefield Tour from Coastal Helicopers for our family of five, but it was sold out the day we would arrive Juneau. I called the company to try my luck. The lady there was very nice and added one more slot 6:15pm for us. I was worried it would be... More

Thanks for your encouraging comments! That's great to hear that your perseverance paid off for you guys on this trip! It's not uncommon for us to book up tours in advance of a tour date but still have a little flexibility if a group calls in. We always advise giving us a call directly if your pre-scheduled choices aren't obviously... More

Our family of four absolutely loved this excursion! Everyone from Coastal Helicopters - van driver, office staff, helicopter pilot and dog camp guides - were extremely friendly and personable. The van was on time and everything went as expected. It was cold and drizzly on top of the glacier but we wore layers and had gloves so we were still... More

Thank you for leaving us such a great comment! I'm glad to hear that you were able to embrace a dose of our natural weather up here in Alaska and enjoy your experience despite the drizzle! Often times, the cooler, wetter days are the days that the dogs get the most excited since it's the weather they're accustomed to running... More
