Highlight of our Alaska trip!!!!
Aug 2021
Let me start by saying I was a bit apprehensive about taking a helicopter to an icefield. When we got to the airport and met Tarek, he really put me at ease and it ended up being the highlight of our trip! It was just plain awesome!! It was a misty day and what looked like foggy to me. It was incredible to come around the side of a mountain....and there is was...the icefield. It was amazing! Tarek answered any questions we had and was so knowledgeable. He even took some awesome photos for us! I can't recommend this tour enough! Thanks Tarek...you made us some wonderful memories!! I'd download photos if I was more savvy about doing so. I have some great ones!

Outstanding Glacier Tour
Aug 2021 • Solo
The pilot Tarik was awesome. He told us about the glacier and explained how goats were on the mountain. He guided our tour on the glacier and showed us interesting things on the glacier surface. He also took pictures of everyone with the helicopter to have a souvenir of our glacier experience.

An experience of a lifetime
It was an awesome experience, from pick up at the hotel to return. Great staff, amazing helicopter ride to the Mendenhall Glacier. Fog made traveling to the Herbert Glacier not possible today. Having seen the glacier from the ground only yesterday it was a thrill to be on top. Tourck our pilot and guide was very accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful. It is an unforgettable experience.

This was a once in a lifetime adventure that I would do again if I could. Our pilot gave us wonderful views and was very thorough with safety tips and warnings while walking on the glacier. We had a detour to our destination Hubbard Glacier and got to fly one of the fjords. It was gorgeous!! Coastal is amazing.

Personalized Excursion with the YELLOW helicopter!
Breathtaking! From reservations and trip preparations with Sarah to the top of the Icefield with “T”, this tour us a must with Coastal. We received a truly personal adventure during the Pandemic. Not a cloud in the sky and we were able to see Canada. Since we were unable to walk down to the fresh water, T went above and beyond to fill our bottles with glacier water and get us a “special” glacier rock.

Amazing!
Jun 2021 • Friends
This was the first helicopter flight for myself and my two companions! Couldn’t have asked for a better adventure. Our pilot was experienced and friendly, the scenery was absolutely gorgeous, and everything was smooth and easy for us. Hotel pickup was great, even saw some bears on the way on the way out to the airport! This tour is well worth the money in my opinion, just know that any helicopter flight you take in the future won’t be able to stack up to this one.

Breathtaking Experience
Aug 2020 • Solo
Got a recommendation from a local that Coastal was the best helicopter outfit in town and I am so glad I took their advice. Everything was five star and professional. The courtesy pickup and drop off was in a comfortable and clean van driven by a staff member who had lots of great ideas on how to spend time in town. Our pilot doubled as our tour guide on Herbert Glacier and along with a lot of great general knowledge about glaciers he also was able to show us amazing blue pools and small streams of running glacial water.

Ice boots that fit over normal shoes were provided, ask ahead before you arrive what attire would be appropriate although they do have jackets if you need an extra layer. The helicopter itself was comfortable and the view absolutely spectacular. The price of the tour might seem steep at first but it’s an absolute value considering the spectacular experience you get when standing on top of a majestic ice field. Can not recommend it enough!
