A once in a lifetime adventure

Having not been to Alaska before I thought it would be awesome to walk on a glacier. The cruise line we were traveling with had this same excursion but at a higher price. It was very easy to find the reps for the tour where they drove us to the Juneau Airport. They provided us with glacier walking boots and had extra clothing if we needed. After a safety briefing, we were put in our seating positions with 6 per helicopter. Our pilot (Casey) and tour guide was awesome. Amazing views during the 15 minute flight than took us around the glacier. Provided great history and facts about the area.

This is my favorite excursion that I have ever done. The Staff and the pilot are very organized, professional and friendly. I enjoy it so much that this was my second time in two years. I took a friend of mine who has never done this before and she was in awe of the entire experience.

Great experience, just too short!
ErkVank
, Jun 2019
This was a very fun experience, but a little short for the cost. The flight was less than 10 minutes in each direction, and we spent maybe 20-25 minutes on the glacier. The views were awesome and our pilot (Josh) was great! The logistics of the operation were seamless, and all of the staff was very friendly and helpful!

Great (but brief) trip to Herbert Glacier
Resort42115886339
, Jun 2019
Overall, it was a great experience. We felt very safe and well-prepared for the flight by the crew who provided spikes for our shoes and other safety information. We landed on a glacier and were alone, which was nice as we weren't tripping over others. We enjoyed great views, good information about the glacier from the pilot, and some nice photos. We just wish (1) it had been a little longer (seemed like about 15 total minutes on the glacier, though it was probably a bit longer, maybe 20-25 minutes?), and we didn't really walk around much on the glacier and, (2) we would have flown around a little to see a few other parts of the glacier, not just the place where we landed. Maybe it was because we shared the trip with another family with younger children, so it was less adventurous. Overall, we recommend it!

Glacier Walk & Helicopter Ride

We had some weather come in, but our trip went quite well despite that. Our pilot and guide did an absolutely marvelous job of making sure we had a safe and fun adventure. My 87-year-old mother was with us and he escorted her across the glacier to ensure she was safe and also got to see as much as we saw.

Matt C
, Sep 2017
This was the highlight of our trip. A must see. Our guide was funny and informative. Was helpful with taking pictures. We spent about 15 minutes on the glacier walking around and drinking from the water. I would recommend taking a bottle and filling it up with glacier water. How many people can say they've had water from a glacier.

Coastal Helicopters was very well...
cgorman2
, Aug 2017
Coastal Helicopters was very well organized. They met us outside the cruise ship, picked us up in a small passenger van. At their HQ at the Juneau airport, they fitted us all with boots suitable to walk on ice and had us watch a safety video. The helicopter ride was smooth and the view is beautiful. On the glacier, you have 20 minutes to walk around but they will keep an eye on you to make sure you don't wander far and heaven forbid fall into a crevasse. Highly recommend you bring nice cameras along with something to catch the freezing cold, pure glacier water to drink. Also highly recommend using Travel Guard or some other insurance agency to insure this trip, since there are no refunds. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience if you live in the desert, as we do!

It was fantastic!!! Our pilot was so informative and helpful with taking pictures and explaining things to us. I would give it a 10 star if that was possible. Loved every minute of it. Just wish we had more time to enjoy the splendor of Alaska. Absolutely would do it again and again.

This tour is truly an exceptional experience. We visited several glaciers during our stay in Alaska, but flying to and landing on one to walk around and explore the glacier up close is an unmatched experience. We saw several glacial pools and even a stream and waterfall at the landing site. The views from the helicopter were phenomenal both to and from the ice field.
