Helicopter & Airboat Adventure

The Taku River Basin is home to a large variety of wildlife such as brown bear, moose, wolves, goats and bald eagles. While in flight you will enjoy breathtaking views of our nation's largest National Forest. From the airboat you will have panoramic views of the largest glacier in the Juneau Ice Field, cascading mountains, and the pristine Taku River.

After a 15 to 20 minute flight on the Helicopter you will arrive at the Airboat Base. The airboat portion of your tour will be between 30 and 40 minutes long. The return trip to the helicopter base will be another 15 to 20 minutes, after which you will be transferred back to your cruise ship.

Safety instructions will be given at the beginning of each portion of your tour.
