My husband and I took a tour with Helicopter Air in Sept 2019 (last month) and loved the experience. It was our first time in a helicopter, which was a dream for both of us. We felt so safe the entire time and our pilot (Chaz) was great about letting us choose our own adventure while we were up in the air (including where to land the helicopter up in the wilderness for a bit of on-the-ground exploration). We saw lots of bears too! The folks running Helicopter Air are so kind, thorough, and really made the experience special. I'd highly recommend booking with this company!

Carrie met us in town and drove us to their location a short drive away. We were met by Chaz, our pilot who went over safety with us before takeoff. Their customer service is excellent! We felt completely safe with Chaz and he went above and beyond our expectations during the tour. We saw whales on our way to Mahoney Lake and Mahoney Falls. Once at the lake we saw Mountain Goats and beautiful waterfalls. He landed on a shore near a lake and we were able to get out and explore in a remote area, which was wonderful and serene. Once back in flight he was able to take us to a mountain top where we saw a mamma bear with 2 cubs. He is careful to not disturb the wildlife in their habitat, while at the same time showing us the beauty of Alaska wilderness. We highly recommend Helicopter Alaska Air and Chaz!!

As a local to Ketchikan this is the best tour I’ve ever taken here, hands down! The views and wildlife viewing were breathtaking, it was like seeing it for the first time! Chaz was our pilot, he’s a master of his craft and knowledgeable of the areas we flew over. I would highly recommend this as a way to soak up and take in as much of Ketchikan as you can in such a short visit. Besides the mountain goats and black bears the best was landing on top of the world! 360 views that no one else but Alaska Air Helicopter can land on making that worth the trip and photo opportunity in its self. Definitely one of my most memorable days of summer.
