Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Enjoy convenient pickup from Juneau port’s cruise terminal or meet at a central location, and listen to informative commentary from your driver en route to the heliport. After a safety briefing, board your helicopter for a ride into Alaskan landscapes difficult to reach by vehicle.

Soak up unforgettable views as you fly over icefalls and rock formations. Gain insight into Alaska’s natural history and meteorology from your pilot-guide.

Then, your pilot navigates to Herbert Glacier depending on weather conditions. Touch down right onto the glacier surface. Leave the helicopter and do something few people get to do—take a guided walkabout on a glacier nestled high in the mountains, covered with snow and ice. Your pilot-guide points out notable landmarks and explains the local geology.

Take your final picture of your stellar surroundings and step back aboard the helicopter. Enjoy the bird’s-eye perspective during your return flight to Juneau. Your Juneau shore excursion ends with van transport back to the cruise terminal.

Worry-free Shore Excursion: We ensure your timely return to the Juneau port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money is refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

The crew at Coastal Helicopters is amazing! Getting to the airfield was easy, as was getting everything settled for the trip up the glacier. Our pilot, Josh, was outstanding both as a pilot and as a tour guide. My fiancé proposed on the glacier and Josh got SUCH incredible pictures of it, especially since he didn’t know it was coming! Josh and Coastal helicopters went above and beyond!

Highlight of our vacation

This helicopter tour was the highlight of our vacation. First of all, let me tell you that I am very afraid of heights. I booked this because I knew my husband would love it, but I was dreading it.. Boy, was I wrong. This was amazing!! I loved every minute and not once was I afraid. Our helicopter pilot Scott was an expert. Not only was he a good pilot but he was a great guide and was so knowledgeable about the glaciers and the area in general. He took off with such a smooth lift that you couldn't even feel it and the same when he landed on the glacier. I would recommend this to everyone visiting Juneau.
