It was a little rainy on our trip but that is to be had this time of year in Alaska. Our pilot was very good and made everyone feel comfortable. Once we landed on the glacier, it was a sight to see.
Fantastic ride! Loved landing on the glacier. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very comfortable ride.
AMAZING experience. Highlight of the trip. Adventurous and manageable at the same time. Casey was a great pilot and taught us a lot about the glaciers. The sights are simply amazing. Smooth pick up and drop off at the cruise ship.
Most excellent experience landing and walking on the Herbert Glacier! Experience of a lifetime! Drew did a wonderful job piloting and leading the group during the walk about.
OMG this was so sureal. Only wish the tour had been longer. I debated about spending the extra money but found this excursion to be worth every penny. Why else do you go to Alaska? Spend the money to see the glaciers up close. The sun broke out and the blues and greens were just so stunning. A memory I won't soon forget.
By far the best tour in Alaska! Nice to land on a glacier with no other tours.
On time pick up at the cruise port, great staff, newer helicopters and a great pilot. Plus it was 100 cheaper than the same tour Holland America offered. Its expensive but well worth it. A once in a lifetime experience. Also liked the security of the Viator guarantee. Would recommend to a friend!
Best tour we took. You are alone in the glacier with just the helicopter, pilot and the 4 people on the tour. Walking over the glacier is an awesome experience.
Why can't you give 6 stars? Trip of a lifetime. Beautiful. Awe inspiring. At the top of the world. Company is well organized and friendly.
Very enjoyable. We saw a seemingly bottomless lake, several rivers and 2 waterfalls in the middle of the glacier. Amazing.
The BEST!! Lucky was my pilot and he was Lucky we saw bears, goats and had a blast!!
What an unbelievable tour and our pilot, Casey, was great. The kids all said that this was the most awesome thing I've ever done. We HIGHLY recommend this tour.
Extraordinary. Our Pilot, Casey, a nice guy. Polite, gentle. Good. We enjoyed our trip. It was the best on our visit to Alaska.
We felt completely safe with Jamie, our Pilot. The company was professional and well-prepared. The views on the glacier were spectacular. Would recommend to anyone!
The pilot was amazing, very knowledgeable. It was an experience of a lifetime would recommend doing this excursion.
Helecoptered into the Herbert Glacier right next to the Mendenhall glacier and got to actually walk around and explore for quite a while. This was on the bucket list, and it was everything I hoped it would be. It was a pleasant 50F and a little rainy, but that didn't bother anybody. Just an amazing trip, will worth the time and cost.

Fantastic tour and well worth the expense although it is expensive. Highly recommend Coastal Helicopters and especially Katie who works there, she is a ROCK STAR. Here's why... My wife and I were doing this tour and I needed a seat belt extender. After a long while searching for one they found they did not have one for the helicopter I was in. Katie kept us informed throughout and then the decision was made to pull us out of the helicopter we were in and put us on a different one with seat belts that I could use. The end result was a private tour with just us and the pilot at no additional expense! Katie took care of everything and was great throughout, she really made us feel at ease and was very professional.
Flying to the glacier was smooth and easy and we felt very safe. Once we got on the glacier it was freakin awesome! To jump around on it, see the blue pools of water that were so deep you can't see the bottom, drinking the water and the overall beauty was fantastic. Simply a thrill!
Highly recommend and saved a lot of money doing this directly instead of through the cruise ship. I will say it again - Coastal was great and made it even more special by how they handled everything.
It was an amazing experience. The helicopter ride was smooth and our pilot/guide found perhaps the best spot on the glacier to land. We were able to get an epic photograph out of it.
DO IT! We booked outside of the cruise, saved money and see something no one else does as they go to a different glacier. Staff was awesome as well.

Wow, this was great, blue ice how beautiful. All employees were wonderful. Everyone knew there job and we had a excellent pilot, knew all about the area. If I had the chance I would go again.
Although the weather was rainy when we left the ship, we waited for the pilot to confirm an okay for flight and it was great, no precipitation on the glacier. It was awesome to walk on the glacier and drink glacial water! The whole family was overwhelmed. Well worth it, and we are still talking about it.
