Helicopter Tours



Experience a magical helicopter tour through Prince William Sound. Embrace the beauty of nature as we soar over the Chugach National Forest, the second largest forest in the United States. The Whittier Airport is located at the head of Passage Canal, the gateway to Prince William Sound.  Come see massive tidal water glaciers calve into the ocean creating a thunder of falling ice.  Sea otters, bears, seals, whales, eagles and mountain goats are just some of the wildlife we may encounter on this magical journey.

Approximate tour time is 30 minutes.


For those of you who would like a little longer air time, this is the tour for you! See the longest tidal water in Prince William Sound, see the most active glacier in Prince William Sound and see the only cascading glacier in Prince William Sound.

Approximate tour time is 45 minutes.

PASSAGE CANAL TOUR – $75 per person

For those of you that are a little more reserved or on a tighter budget we offer a shorter tour through Passage Canal.  We depart the Whittier airport at the head of Passage Canal and fly by the glaciated mountain peaks surrounding this rocky, crystal clear fjord.  Hanging glaciers and tidal water glaciers are just some of the sights you will see.  Often times mountain goats are found on the sides of the cliffs decorated by giant plunging waterfalls.

Approximate tour time is 10 minutes.
