Once you board the boat, relax and let your experienced captain lead the way to whales and other wildlife. Since your guides visit the waters daily, they are quite knowledgeable about the social circles of whales and where they congregate. You will learn about life in Alaska, as well as the habits of these mammals.
Next, we're off to our favorite helipad, which is conveniently between Auk Bay and the pier.
This most popular tour will take you from the Juneau airport for a one-hour extravaganza over the Juneau Icefield, traveling to the Herbert, Taku, Lemon, or Norris Glacier.
Only moments after departing from the airport, you will be flying over spectacular rock formations and icefalls. The tour is narrated by either your knowledgeable pilot/guide or a custom CD.
Upon reaching your destination, your pilot/guide will shut down the helicopter and escort you on an informative, relaxing walk while describing the area that surrounds you. The glacier walk will be approximately 15-20 minutes long.
You have just had the 2 best experiences in Alaska. One - seeing the Juneau Icefields from above before landing on a glacier and the other, the famous whales in these bays.
