The 30-minute glacier landing experience was unlike anything we’ve ever done, and we were so glad we did it. We were only in Seward for one day and were so thankful for the beautiful weather. We stayed at Harbor 360, the folks from Marathon provided us with round-trip

Amazing trip! Breath taking views. Mike is an awesome guide. Took the glacier landing tour and saw Hawk glacier up close and personal. Saw a bull moose on the way up.

The bull moose are so rare to spot from the air....I probably have only seen 5 or 6 this season. Glad you made us a part of your vacation and thank you for the nice review. -Mike

Mike and his staff are just amazing folks. This trip was the highlight of our stay in Seward. We went over the Godwin glacier and landed on Bear. Mike spent a lot of time with us and even accommodated our sons adventurous spirit and went on a hike with him. Don’t miss this

Thank you for the nice review. You should see Godwin Glacier now....a huge sink hole well over 100 feet across just opened up right in the middle! Please come visit us next time you are in town, we would love to see you all again. -Mike

This is by far the most amazing experience I’ve had while in Alaska. There is no better way to see the incredible Kenai Fjords area than from the air. You really have no idea what beauty is in this area until you’re above it. I went on the Bear Glacier tour with amazing views

Hi Sam n Case! Thank you for sharing your experience with the community. I feel very fortunate to be able to fly helicopters in Seward where we have access to glaciers, wildlife, and dense forests just moments outside of town. I look forward to your next visit in Seward. -Pilot Mike
