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 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.

Breathtaking! This tour opened my eyes to the true beauty of glaciers, and I am so glad my friend convinced me to go. We drank ancient water trickling down the glaciers surface and tried to capture the magic of the moment with panning photos and videos. I had never ridden in a helicopter, and that was exciting too, but the glacier itself stole the show. We also witnessed bighorn sheep on the mountainside nearby.
So much fun lovely views but its cold on the ice so make sure you wear the jackets and gloves and shoes provided and enjoy the experience.
The helicopter ride was fantastic and the glacier breathtaking. Would go again and again.
Awesome excursion! Company picked us up from the cruise terminal and returned us. Our pilot was friendly and very informative. Don't worry about your shoes or extra clothing, the company has everything for you!
Spectacular and so much fun. It was hazy all morning and I was afraid that it would be cancelled. But the afternoon turned clear and off we went. Our pilot was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He took us to Herbert Glacier where there was no other air traffic and set us down flawlessly. There was ultimate quiet and you could hear the glacier movement. We even drank glacier water. This is a once in a lifetime experience and we would recommend it to everyone. The entire company staff was great!
It was a uniquely exhilarating experience to walk on the icefield. Our pilot was very informative on the trip to and from the glacier and assisted the group to ensure everyone's safety. The staff were extremely professional and actively engaged our group on what to expect and took excellent pictures.
Really fun tour. Had a great experience with my kids. Both my kids 2 and 6 enjoyed the tour.
Great. Fabulous experience. Our pilot seemed a little 'over' teh tourist but then it didn't matter as the experience was still great.
An amazing adventure. The weather was perfect, the scenery was beautiful. The only drawback was flight was too crowed for the price we paid.
