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've dog sledded before in Grand Teton and had a longer trip, but this adventure was unique because you had the added benefit of an amazing view from the helicopter. From the glaciers to the mountains and then the excitement of the well-trained dogs, it was a great experience. Plus we were lucky enough to ride up with the owner... More

I visited Juneau as a stop on a cruise to Alaska. We were a group of three and we had purchased this excision through direct cruise lines. It was a great experience from the beginning. The shuttle picked us up at the port and took us to Juneau Airport for our flight. Grant, our driver was very personable and pointed... More

We took a helicopter ride with Scott and landed on Herbert glacier. This is truly an indescribable experience. My husband, 24 year old daughter and 27 year old son all agree that without a doubt, this is a must do. It was by far the best thing we did on our trip to Alaska and probably the most amazing experience... More

Highlight of my trip to Alaska! We used Coastal Helicopters to land on Herbert Glacier and go dog sledding. It was absolutely amazing. I booked this as a cruise excursion (did not book through the ship). I was on the fence because it is a price excursion, but I am so glad I did. It was really an experience of... More

This operation is first class all the way. Our pilot and the entire staff went out of their way to make this an experience of a lifetime. The flight is smooth and landing is smooth. Walking on a glacier is something you should do at least once in your life. Standing on this huge mass of ice gives you a... More

Well worth every penny!! Just remember to wear water proof pants as sleds are wet and it may rain up on glacier. Pilots very knowledgeable & patient with kids questions.

This is the company to use !! All the other's cancel when it rains because of their glacier location. No disappointments with Coastal!! Create lifetime memories and do the extra after sledding to the glacier to see the blue ice up close and drink the water. Our Pilot Jamie was OUTSTANDING! Thank you Coastal for an experience we will never... More

This was a true highlight for both my wife and me on our Alaska trip. The flight was beautiful and the opportunity to explore a glacier by foot was amazing. Our pilot, Seth gave a nice narrative and was very friendly and accomodating for taking pictures. Our early morning flight was postponed because they said the views wouldn't be great... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Both the helicopter ride and sled ride were fantastic and earned raves from our entire family. Booked directly with Coastal and was thrilled with service of the ground crew and with our pilot and musher. The day we went up it was cloudy in Juneau and those who had booked with a competitor...
