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!

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.

This is a must do activity. You fly up the mountainside to the glacier field. You can see sheep and goats on the rugged mountains. Walking on the glacier is exciting. The pilot explains everything and is very helpful. We loved it.

We would have loved to have taken this tour of a lifetime and were very excited to see there was a company advertising ADA compliance. That changed when I tried to book the tour. First the tour company said service dogs were not allowed per FAA, then the company emailed that "unfortunately they didn't allow service dogs on any of their tours". After pointing out that the web site states they are ADA the response was that they understood the web site was misleading and would work at correcting. It is our company policy that all seats are considered exit row seats and we operate in an open cockpit with exposed controls. Our helicopters stay running during loading and unloading; we have no way to predict how animals will react in and around active helicopters. The problem with this response is that it took so long to get a response that they obviously had to write the policy first. No handicapped person is allowed to sit in an exit row. (they allow persons that used wheelchairs and a lift to sit in those same rows). Trained service dogs have to be under control in all noise situations and they have every right to remove them if they are not. If a company is going to say they are ADA complaint they can not choose to comply with only the parts of the law.

Response from SarahL8823, Manager at Coastal Helicopters
Responded Feb 14, 2020
We appreciate feedback and TripAdvisor reviews, thank you for taking the time. We were very accommodating to your concerns and made the necessary and suggested changes on our website. There were a few notes that were untrue in the review: 1. The FAA was never mentioned, this is a company policy and I was very clear on that. 2. You also stated that it took a long time to respond and you stated it was because we were changing our policy. Not correct. Your email was sent Feb 11th @ 3:59am (Alaska Time) and I responded on Feb 12th @ 1:58pm (Alaska Time). We accommodate wheelchair guests utilizing our ADA lift. These guests are seated behind the pilot who have control over the exit door. We have made changes on our website and are not advertising ADA complaint. We changed our verbiage to accommodate ADA lift assistance only. We also provide information regarding service animals on our FAQ page.

Highly recommend this helicopter tour. We didn't get a lot of time on the glacier but the pilot made up for it with drive bys to other glaziers.
