The 30-minute glacier landing experience was unlike anything we’ve ever done, and we were so glad we did it. We were only in Seward for one day and were so thankful for the beautiful weather. We stayed at Harbor 360, the folks from Marathon provided us with round-trip transportation, we flew with Mike, drank some glacier water once we got up there, took a thousand photos, strolled around a bit and just drank in the views. We would definitely do it again!

This was one of the highlights of our Alaska trip this year. Our pilot, Mike was awesome and knew so much about the area that we went back and did a second day with him.

What a wonderful experience. The staff and pilot were extremely nice and accommodating. The flight itself was beautiful with views of Seward, Resurrection Bay and Bear Glacier. Although it was a scheduled 30-minute we never felt rushed and our pilot took time to explain any questions that we had. We landed at the foot of the Glacier and saw Mountain Goats and Bear This was our first Helicopter ride and we plan on doing more in the future. This is a must-do if you stay in Seward.

Wow, that was fantastic! Mike is an amazing pilot, fun and filled with knowledge and insight. The glacier landing tour with extra time at the glacier was breathtaking and an all around amazing outing, filled with laughs and AMAZING sights. Can't wait to go out again next time. Thank you, Mike and staff!!

We booked a morning flight for a glacier landing with the Marathon team however due to bad weather we were delayed until later that day. The team were great, picked us up and dropped us off twice before we headed out with Mike to drink from a glacier and take a few photos - it was great, we all got soaked but the experience was fantastic. I would definitely choose these guys again if we return to Seward and would recommend them anyone in a heartbeat. Marathon team: Thanks for looking after us, for taking us out despite the weather and for the epic flight soundtrack. 🙂
