This was the first helicopter flight for myself and my two companions! Couldn’t have asked for a better adventure. Our pilot was experienced and friendly, the scenery was absolutely gorgeous, and everything was smooth and easy for us. Hotel pickup was great, even saw some bears on the way on the way out to the airport! This tour is well worth the money in my opinion, just know that any helicopter flight you take in the future won’t be able to stack up to this one.

Got a recommendation from a local that Coastal was the best helicopter outfit in town and I am so glad I took their advice. Everything was five star and professional. The courtesy pickup and drop off was in a comfortable and clean van driven by a staff member who had lots of great ideas on how to spend time in town. Our pilot doubled as our tour guide on Herbert Glacier and along with a lot of great general knowledge about glaciers he also was able to show us amazing blue pools and small streams of running glacial water.

Ice boots that fit over normal shoes were provided, ask ahead before you arrive what attire would be appropriate although they do have jackets if you need an extra layer. The helicopter itself was comfortable and the view absolutely spectacular. The price of the tour might seem steep at first but it’s an absolute value considering the spectacular experience you get when standing on top of a majestic ice field. Can not recommend it enough!

Breathtaking! From reservations and trip preparations with Sarah to the top of the Icefield with “T”, this tour us a must with Coastal. We received a truly personal adventure during the Pandemic. Not a cloud in the sky and we were able to see Canada. Since we were unable to walk down to the fresh water, T went above and beyond to fill our bottles with glacier water and get us a “special” glacier rock.

Must do this in Juneau. The helicopter ride was breathtaking and smooth - it was first helicopter ride for my whole family and we loved it. Our pilot (Kelix) was personable and interesting. Landing on a glacier and being able to waljk around it, drink glacier water and explore the features was once in a lifetime. My wife cried it was so moving for her. The pilot was great for explaining the features and helping us feel safe and comfortable exploring on the glacier for a little while.

It was an awesome experience, from pick up at the hotel to return. Great staff, amazing helicopter ride to the Mendenhall Glacier. Fog made traveling to the Herbert Glacier not possible today. Having seen the glacier from the ground only yesterday it was a thrill to be on top. Tourck our pilot and guide was very accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. It is an unforgettable experience.

Let me start by saying I was a bit apprehensive about taking a helicopter to an icefield. When we got to the airport and met Tarek, he really put me at ease and it ended up being the highlight of our trip! It was just plain awesome!! It was a misty day and what looked like foggy to me. It was incredible to come around the side of a mountain....and there is was...the icefield. It was amazing! Tarek answered any questions we had and was so knowledgeable. He even took some awesome photos for us! I can't recommend this tour enough! Thanks Tarek...you made us some wonderful memories!! I'd download photos if I was more savvy about doing so. I have some great ones!

This was a once in a lifetime adventure that I would do again if I could. Our pilot gave us wonderful views and was very thorough with safety tips and warnings while walking on the glacier. We had a detour to our destination Hubbard Glacier and got to fly one of the fjords. It was gorgeous!! Coastal is amazing.

The pilot Tarik was awesome. He told us about the glacier and explained how goats were on the mountain. He guided our tour on the glacier and showed us interesting things on the glacier surface. He also took pictures of everyone with the helicopter to have a souvenir of our glacier experience.

I didn’t book online as I was not sure about the weather in May....once we docked in Juneau we just went up to the kiosks selling excursions & booked the helicopter ride directly. The Coatal guys picked us up from the Main Street corner & drove us to the airfield. First we were outfitted with boots, then a mandatory safety video, locking our valuables in a box all done very efficiently we were then taken out to the airfield to wait our turn. There were 6 of us on the plane & I was lucky enough to score a front seat next to the window with my husband in the seat behind me & this was our first time on a helicopter. Needless to say but truly amazing !
We touched down on the Herbert glacier & spent some time walking on it, clicking pictures & marvelling at the stunning vistas all around....the flight was thrilling in itself, flying by the Mendelhall glacier,the snow covered mountains & the mighty ocean this was a dream come true.
The Coastal guys were professionals& the experience a lot of fun !

Thanks for the excellent review! Waiting to book until your ship arrives is a great way to seek out some better pricing options than you'll see in the days leading up to your port call. Sometimes we're all booked out, but, as in your case, some days we have space! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your first helicopter experience so much, and that you got such nice pictures! Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with the community! Derrick Grimes Tour Manager
