We didn't anticipate in booking this tour but finally did at the very last moment and we considered very lucky we did. For this time we got fortunate to have good weather during the flight & during the glacier walk. The staff did explain the preflight procedure very well and they did provide a kind of life vest and special... More

We were blessed by amazingly good weather on the day of our flight. The experience both in the air and at the glacier is something I will never forget! What an incredible experience. Our pilot gave us a fantastic 30 minute sightseeing flight on the way to the glacier where we'd debark for 45 minutes. Sitting in the helicoptor, if... More

Yes, the price is steep (though not as much as if we booked with the cruise ship) but this was the highlight of our trip. The helicopter ride was amazing and even with two people with queasy stomachs, no one got sick. The pristine glacier and peaceful setting was gorgeous. My son said he thought we were on the moon....

We booked this tour for the sole purpose of walking on a glacier. We arrived at TEMSCO which is a short ride from the cruise port and waited a little while for the remainder of the passengers. Once everyone was there, we watched a video and received safety gear. We then boarded the helicopter and took a quick ride to... More

This was so much fun. We booked directly with the company since there were 6 of us and only 5 spots left through the cruise ship. By booking directly they were able to get all of us on the same helicopter. It was beautiful to see the glaciers and the running waters right below your feet.

The best tour we've ever been on. Our pilot was awesome and the visit to the glacier was way above what we expected. Once in a lifetime opportunity and worth every penny!

We were lucky and had the most beautiful 60 degree weather. The crew was friendly and helpful. We took our helicopter ride to the Meade glacier which was amazing! Best excursion we had the whole cruise.

I was very lucky to be able to take a last minute excursion with this company! The manager, Jesse, and his crew were very professional. The safety presentation was very helpful, as were the boots and vest we were given to wear during our experience. The flight to and from the glacier was wonderful. Landing on the glacier and walking... More

Our pilot Ryan was amazing -- very knowledgeable and friendly/approachable. We were able to land on the Chilkat glacier because the weather was so mild and it was awesome -- it was so long we couldn't see the head of it or the foot, Ryan pointed out many facts about this glacier and glaciers in general and showed us how...
