      This was absolutely one of the most amazing experiences of my life. My wife and I got a little bit lucky because as we flew up to the mountain, the fog followed us up there. As a result, we got a bit stuck and ended up landing on the top of the mountain. It was completely safe, and our guide was fantastic (even though he felt a bit bad that it took up more time than anticipated, but we didn't mind of course). It was the most romantic date imaginable. That landing experience was unplanned, so don't expect it to happen, but even if we didn't land, it would still be a dream come true. It's worth it!

      A Wonderful + Adventurous Tour
      We had the best time on our helicopter tour! Our pilot, Jonathon, was amazing. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, our tour fell on a very rainy/foggy day, but Jonathon was able to modify our route and still provide an excellent experience for us. We would absolutely recommend this tour!

      Epic Adventure
      This was truly one of the most awesome experiences of my life. Seeing things from a birds eye view is such an incredible perspective. From getting close to the waterfall to seeing Mountain Goats feeding on the mountain to finally landing on Top of the World — it honestly couldn’t have been any better. Super grateful for this experience.

      Top of World in Bas Weather
      Great trip even with weather deviations. Did not get to do the "top of the world mountain top stop" - again due to less than desirable weather (welcome to Alaska in early May). Jonathan - our pilot - was great in finding other things to see and do. We landed on the same place on Georgia Bay and think the final leg of Mahoney Falls into Georgia Bay that we had done 9 years ago. Would highly suggest Ketchikan Helicopters and Jonathan for an amzing flight - hopefully in better weather.

      Mahoney Falls from above - Amazing!
      The views were amazing. Larry was an excellent pilot and guide taking the time to get all the best photos including the mountain goats, Mahoney Falls, where the salmon journey and the many lakes. Highly recommend this tour.

      What an absolutely fantastic helicopter tour! Our pilot, Brian, was excellent! He strived to be sure we had a wonderful experience! The whole operation from port pickup to drop-off was so smooth!

      Fantastic group of people
      They were all fantastic. Took the time to calm my wife who wasn't too sure about the ride. Also took the time to help my wife into the helicopter despite her having mobility issues. We had a great time.

      The overall 5 star rating is well deserved. We stayed in Ketchikan for 10 days and did about every tour available. This tour was no less than outstanding. Our pick-up was exactly on time at the designated location and the driver was a pleasure. Our pilot, Tyler, could not have been more profession or entertaining. We were stymied from some of the planned views like the waterfalls because of the mist and fog. However, Tyler turned this around and got us up close and personal to the lakes, hills, and a group of mountain goats, a rare sight I really appreciated. The views were surreal, a Jurassic Park-like experience. We wrapped the tour up by flying up the southern coast of the island where we saw a feeding mother bear and cubs next to one of the hatcheries. This tour was a wonderful life experience for both my wife and I. Kudos to the entire Helicopter Air Alaska team.

      Darn that weather.
      Due to weather our flight was canceled. The company issued a prompt refund. We are grateful for their concern for safety and prompt refund.

      Amazing Experience
      We were lucky enough to have a clear beautiful day and the views were amazing! Tyler was our pilot and he did a great job at answering questions and telling about the area. It was amazing to see the mountain goats, waterfall, lakes and islands from above. We spent the whole weekend in Ketchikan and this was one of the highlights of our trip!

      Great Experience
      This was one of our best experiences while in Alaska. It was not cheap but we had an amazing time. We were picked up close to our hotel, spent a bit of time in the helicopter getting to the glacier, loved our time on the glacier, and then enjoyed the views on the return ride. Amazing!

    Being in a helicopter is such a good experience. Only my 2nd time but Bryan put us at ease. The scenery is spectacular. We didn’t see any wildlife but the views of the falls and the lakes is worth the fee alone. 30 mins is not long enough, I wanted more and would have no problem in recommending this experience.
