For this unique Juneau Taku Glacier Helicopter and Airboat Expedition Excursion, you will transfer from downtown Juneau to the heliport, located 30 minutes away in the Mendenhall Valley, where you will weigh/check in with staff before boarding your sightseeing helicopter. Based on the total weight of the guests, the helicopter can hold up to six guests. Today, you are not going to have an experience of a lifetime; you are going to have several. From the moment that you are airborne, you are rewarded with incredible views of Juneau's ice-capped mountains, hanging glaciers and glacial crevasses en route to the expedition shore excursion base situated on the Taku River approximately 15 minutes away.

At the helicopter and airboat sightseeing excursion base, in the shadow of the mighty Taku glacier, you will hop out of the helicopter and get into your full body mustang flotation suit before boarding the airboat for your next unbelievable experience. Take off on an energetic Taku River airboat cruise excursion that provides you the opportunity for an up-close and personal look at some of the most gorgeous and inaccessible area in the world, Alaska!

Your riverboat excursion captain has more than 20 years of local knowledge specifically pertaining to the Taku River and watershed and is ready to make you an expert too! As you skim across the water, he will share insightful historical information that will enhance your sightseeing cruise shore excursion adventure and your understanding of the region. Total time on the airboat is approximately 60 minutes. The captain will stop at several points for photo opportunities and give you lots of information about the sights and area.

Returning to the airboat excursion base, bask in the majestic view of the glacier before climbing back up the 2 flights of stairs and re-boarding the helicopter and taking a 5-minute flight over the water to your landing site on the Taku Glacier itself!

Your helicopter sightseeing cruise excursion pilot will shut down the aircraft and escort you on a walkabout of the advancing level of the 4500 ft thick glacier, where key glacial features like crevasses, moulins, blue ice and ice falls are present. The combined experience of seeing the glacier from the air and water and finally, walking on it and feeling the glacier beneath your boots, will surely be a cherished memory of your time in Alaska. Time on the glacier is approximately 10 minutes.

The final leg of your Juneau shore excursion adventure is another breathtaking flight back to the airport and your van will take you on the 30-minute return drive back to your Juneau pier pick up location.

With this tour we had the opportunity to enjoy nature at it's best, on air and in water and land. It was one of the most exciting experiences ever! I was a little bit nervous at first but the view eased my nervousness and it's just simply relaxing. We saw bears feeding by the lakes, mountain goats and whales and numerous wildlife sightings so we even had that emotion to top off the already incredible experience. This is not a usual adventure and it was well worth it.

No words to describe the beauty of the glacier, it's like being in a different planet. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and helpful, we learn about the glaciers and how much of a unique experience it is. I never would have thought that ice could be blue. Thank you for making this happen! Highly recommended it and encourage you to go as this might be one of those things that won't be there in 20 years from now, better do it now!
