We are a Helicopter Charter Service based in unique Juneau, Alaska. During the summers we devote a portion of our fleet of helicopters to running tours for visitors coming off of the many cruise ships that pass through our town, or visiting family and friends on an extended holiday.

We offer a variety of tour experiences, all accessing parts of the scenic Juneau area via helicopter, to help give visitors the best memories of their time in Alaska. Our staff are locally hired, and trained to insure the most authentic vacation possible.

Majestic mountain peaks and plunging crevasses will seem to be at your fingertips when you come with Coastal Helicopters Inc. on the adventure of a lifetime! With our vast reservoir of experience flying in Alaska, you're in for an unforgettable flight as our pilots take you on one of our specially designed tours. From racing across the face of the Taku Glacier in an Alaskan Airboat, to speeding over the glacier on your own dogsled, to simply basking in the awe inspiring vistas of the glacier with our Icefield Tours, there's a tour for everyone! All ages and conditions welcome! We are a handicap friendly company, outfit with lifts for ease of loading.

Allow us to be your pathway to adventure when planning your Alaskan experience!

We booked our helicopter tour and dog sledding experience in Juneau, Alaska through Viator and Coastal Helicopters conducted the tour. We were picked up in the parking lot right outside of the Mount Roberts Tramway. They drove us to the airport - about 15 minutes or so for check-in. They provided warm and protective boots for us to walk on... More

This excursion was wonderful! It started out well from the get go with a very personable shuttle driver who picked us up at the pier. We rode to the airport where we were fitted with over boots for walking on snow and ice-again the staff was great. The helicopter ride up to the dog camp offered stunning views w/awesome photo...

Went on the ice water and snow trip with helicopter and airboat with glacier walk. Highly recommend this especially with one of the best pilot and helpful pilot called Drew who made us feel relaxed and 'at home' with his caring and professional service. Taught us many things on our glacier walk and we felt very safe with him. He... More

Maybe I'm biased because it was my birthday, but this trip was amazing. We saw the Herbert glacier. The staff was courteous, our pilot Aaron was awesome and of course to actually fly up to and land on a glacier is a once in a lifetime experience! It's a national treasure. I even drank water from the glacier!

We were wow'ed by the Misty Fjord floatplane in Ketchikan, but this was even more spectacular! Opted for the helicopter & dog sledding on Herbert Glacier. The helicopter ride was so smooth, you felt like you were just floating on air--important for me since I tend to get very motion sick. It was a quick 15-minute ride out to the... More

This is the best, most memorable experience of a great Alaska tour. We took the Coastal Helicopter ride to Herbert Glacier for the dog sledding experience. Jamie is a great pilot. With the dogs, our group of 3 took turns standing and "driving" the sled, and sitting down in the sled. Caleb, our musher, was very nice and in control... More

We recently visited Juneau on a cruise and scheduled the Herbert Glacier landing. It was the most amazing and memorable experience. The enormity of the glacier and beauty is breathtaking. As others mention, the cost is pricey but it is truly a once in a lifetime experience and well worth it. When you land, you are truly there by yourself.... More

Firstly let me say book a LATER time, I did because I wanted to sleep in and not rush breakfast on the ship - became a life saver as all the previous times were cancelled due to the heavy fog the helicopters could not take anyone up to the glacier!!! I must admit it was the highlight of my whole... More

We arrived in Juneau on Carnival Legend. Booked this excursion prior to the cruise. Did not want to go where all the other people went (Mendenhall). Everyone at Coastal was nice, professional, and timely. Our pilot Evan was great. We flew in the heli to Herbert Glacier, landed on the ice and and walked around. Unbelievable! Breathtakingly beautiful. We were... More
