Loved every minute of this. Tom was amazing. The big military trick and the boat were so cool and loved walking close to the icebergs.

This is a unique Alaska experience. Being up close with the bergy bits is simply wonderful. I live in Willow, Alaska and would recommend this trip to Alaskans and visitors alike. This was my second trip. One of those experiences you hope never gets too...More

This was a great and unique way to get up and close to the Knik Glacier. As you ride the truck out to the boat launch, you're the only people for miles and miles and you really feel the scale and grandeur of Alaska. Several...More

We had a WONDERFUL time on the Knik Glacier helicopter ride. It was awesome landing on the glacier, drinking the water and being in such a beautiful place. Would totally recommend this adventure.

One of the best trips we have taken! It’s very casual, super nice, and they make it a lot of fun!! The boats are described as loud in some reviews but they provide ear protection for everyone who chooses to use them. Fantastic trip!

We had an absolute blast! Our guide, Randy, was amazing! The glacier is gorgeous and we had so much fun riding the truck and airboat! This was definitely one of the major highlights of our trip to Alaska. We highly recommend this tour!!

Not really. I used yelp when I was up there to figure things out. But the base headquarters place is at least 10 miles from any restaurant as I recall. After the glacier tour we went to the reindeer place down the road and... More

I am sure that if you call them 907-745-1577 they can schedule you. Their boat is large and can handle several people. The suggestion to contact them on their web site is also good.
