This was my first time in a helicopter and I can't wait to do it again. The pilot was knowledgeable and personable and the glaciers were awe-inspiring. Incredible views from the helicopter and a thrill to set foot right on the icefield!
Travel to and from the airport and cruise ship dock was included. Shoe covers were provided for passengers doing dog sledding, pants covers were also provided. The helicopter can hold 6 passengers plus the pilot. We were originally scheduled for a morning tour, but due to weather we were rebooked to the afternoon. We were able to view awesome scenery on the flight to Herbert Glacier. On the glacier, there was a small area to walk around, take photos, and drink from the glacial stream. The pilot was very professional and safety-conscious, as we needed to wait for the weather to clear before we could fly back down. A worthwhile trip for adults and children!
This tour was the highlight of our cruise! So worth the money !!! Loved our pilot, he even took our pictures near the glacier for us! Great, great, great!!!
This tour Is amazing! It and #39;s worth it!
The organization was perfect! The views and the experience Is amazing
If you go to Juneau don and #39;t miss this tour!
Fantastic ! Great pilot, knowledgeable , friendly and great photographer as well. This was the highlight of our Alaska trip and is a do not miss experience. As an aside, I had trouble deciding whether to book the helicopter tour through Royal Caribbean or Viator. I do not recall what led me to choose Viator, it may have been the slightly lower price. When we got off the ship for the excursion we first encountered the contact person for the Cruise ship helicopter excursion. She was there advising cruisers that their trip was cancelled due to inclement weather. However, she stressed to us to wait for a Coastal Helicopter Rep. our trip, and we had no intention of not waiting because they have several glaciers they can fly to and can fly further out to a glacier, stressing our tour may not be cancelled. Well ours was not cancelled and we really had a fantastic experience. Thanks Coastal Helicopters !!!!
Our pilot was Seth who took us around to see amazing views of everything, took photo's for all of us and was just a really nice guy. I would only say that I was a little disappointed with the amount of time we had on the glacier but I think I just didn't want to leave it was wonderful to be there. Highly recommend.
Thanks for great memories.
This was an amazing experience! Words can't describe it! Pilot Seth was amazing and we can't wait to do this trip again! Highly recommend this experience be put on everyone's MUST DO list in life!

Excellent pilot and guide - it was certainly worth it!
Breathtaking. Staff all the way around very friendly. Landed right on the glacier but the 20 minutes was too short to really take it all in. Something we will never forget!!
Our group was split on two different helicopters. It wasn't a big deal to us because our helicopters took off about the same time and landed on the glacier at the same time. Our pilot Scott was excellent and narrated what we were seeing. When we landed on the glacier he grabbed the other half of our group and ran us all over the glacier to get the most AMAZING pictures EVER! He challenged us to do push ups to drink the glacier water and it was AWESOME, but my hands were freezing cold. Your time on the glacier is very limited, so take it all in! It was a beautiful and a once in a lifetime experience. My only regret is that we didn't add on the mushing dogs. I highly recommend this tour!
Our excursion was a blast! Our helicopter pilot, Shawn was extremely knowledgeable and safety minded. The staff was courteous and informative! We'd go again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it!!
Wonderful time! We had Scott as a guide around the glacier and there was no length he wouldn't go to make sure we had great pictures to capture the moment. He was very dynamic and enthusiastic. Highly recommend this tour, you will not see something so amazing elsewhere!
Amazing tour. Pilot was great, informative, helpful. First time in Alaska, in a helicopter and in a glacier. Definitely recommend, as it is once in a lifetime experience!!
Beautiful glacier views. Walking on the glacier was a great experience. This tour was by far the highlight of our trip to Alaska.
We were the only ones on the glacier. How wonderful. Highly recommend....
The tour was amazing. Landed on a glacier with no one in sight. Great pilot and great time. Well worth the high price. Once in a lifetime experience!
This was definitely by far the best excursion we booked during our Alaska cruise. The shuttle bus picked us up on time and the helicopter pilot was very knowledgeable. The scenery and flight were amazing. He also offered to take pictures for everyone.
