Alaska Helicopter Tour Reviews

Why Outbound Heli? We are local Alaskans veterans who enjoy sharing our knowledge with our guests. We provide unbelievable helicopter adventures but can also help you plan the perfect vacation. Let us help you put together your dream Alaska vacation! 

After having our wedding canceled twice during the pandemic, my fiancé and I recently decided to abandon our plans and elope to Alaska. We hired Joe Connolly of Chugach Peaks Photography (highly recommended) to officiate/photograph the wedding. Joe works with various companies in Alaska to charter helicopters for these types of events, but we were lucky enough to have Outbound Heli with us for our big day.Having never been to Alaska, it was somewhat nerve-racking to think about spending seven hours flying from one remote wilderness location to the next. But our pilot Chris immediately calmed those nerves. In terms of his expertise, Chris is not only a helicopter pilot, but also a former helicopter mechanic in the Marine Corps. He was in complete command of the aircraft and made smooth landings in seemingly impossible places. Even apart from his flying, Chris made us feel completely safe the entire day, standing lookout for wildlife while we posed for wedding photos and carrying a “throw bag” in case one of us slipped into a blue glacial pool—a safety precaution our experienced photographer commented he’d never seen another helicopter pilot take.Equally important on our wedding day, Chris was warm, patient, and a perfect gentleman. He did everything from help install microspikes on our shoes before slippery walks to take pictures during our ceremony when Joe performed his officiating duties. Far from being disengaged, Chris was by our side the whole seven-hour day and never even looked at his watch.When we booked our trip, we had no expectations for our helicopter pilot other than to safely take us from Point A to Point B. But now it’s hard to imagine that day without Chris, who was an important part of our memories.We’d be remiss not to also mention Bridget, who handled the administrative side of our trip, gave us our all-important safety briefing, and was lovely in every way from the moment we met her. If you’re looking for more than to simply hitch a ride, and want real, experienced, engaged travel guides, use Outbound Heli. If we ever return to Alaska, we would not call anyone else.

Such an epic adventure! Wow! Exploring the Knik Glaicer from the air is unbelievable and a must when visiting Anchorage. Outbound Heli is first class all the way! Bridget made booking and planning our trip a breeze. She is so knowledgeable of the area and was even able to help us find a place to stay! Our pilot Chris was so rad and friendly. We immediately felt like family. Landing on the Glaicer is also a must when visiting Alaska! I can’t wait to bring the rest of my family back for another EPIC Adventure with Outbound Heli! I highly recommend Outbound Heli to check off your “Alaska Helicopter Adventure Tour” from your bucket list! Give them a call!

Wow, what an amazing experience! Pictures don’t do this adventure justice. Flying over the Alaskan terrain on our way to the Knik Glacier was a once in a lifetime experience for my wife and I. The flight alone was worth it as we soared over countless wildlife. The entire Outbound Heli Adventure crew were extremely kind, helpful, and full of information on our excursion. If we came back we would absolutely do this again!!

I went on a tour with Outbound Heli Adventures to the Knik Glacier yesterday. It was a beautiful day and the pilot and helicopter were top notch! We landed next to a glacier pool that was so blue and clear it was unbelievable! We brought empty water bottles and fill them with the most refreshing water. The sights were more amazing than I could even describe and we saw tons of moose, dall sheep, mountain goats, and bald eagles! It was an incredible experience that i would recommend for EVERYONE!

We came to Alaska on a whim for a weekend getaway and called Kodiak Helicopters as soon as welanded in Anchorage looking for a flight seeing tour. We spoke with Bridget and she gave us a variety offun and exciting options to choose from and decided to go heli-hiking! My husband was nervous about his first time flying a helicopter and Chris graciously gave us an in depth tour of the helicopter and all thesafety features the helicopter had to put his nerves at ease. We spent over 4 hours hiking in unimaginable terrain and decided on the way back while flying over the glacier that it would have been great to land on it too. Without hesitation, Chris offered to land us on top of the glacier where we spent the next hour exploring the glacier and filling up our water bottles with glacier water! This is a must do if you are in Alaska!We go on a helicopter flight everywhere we travel, but our trip with Kodiak Helicopters topped all the others.

For my last day in Alaska I decided I wanted to do a helicopter tour. I knew it was very last minute and I could potentially be disappointed. I called Kodiak - Bridget was so incredibly helpful and clearly was passionate about helping people see Alaska as it was meant to be seen. My options with Kodiak were limited (only because I didn't plan ahead!) but she was quick to provide other options and other fun things to do in the area with companies they collaborated with. Bridget kept me in the loop all day and the next morning until she personally found me a flight with another company. And I got to fly! It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Although I didn't end up flying with Kodiak, their attention to detail and personal touch to help me out went over and above expectations. You can bet that when I am back in Alaska (hopefully soon!) I'll be contacting them (well in advance this time!) to fly with Kodiak. Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about this company. Thank you again!

Chris and Bridget are great to work with and do whatever’s needed to make your trip successful. We enjoyed flying with them recently for a climbing trip in the Chugach. Prices are reasonable and they do a great job of communicating (pre-trip logistics and via inreach) with their customers. Opens up a lot of possibilities. Look forward to flying with these guys in the future.

What an amazing experience! We took off from Burkeshore Marina in Big Lake on Saturday (03/14/2020). It was a clear day - we got views of Denali, moose chillin’ on Hatcher Pass, and everything in between. I got plenty of photos and videos to make family and friends jealous.The helicopter itself was nice and clean, the interior and exterior were well maintained, the headsets were high quality, and the ride was smooth. I felt very safe and secure in there before, during, and after. Thank you so much for making this a fun and memorable first helicopter ride and I can’t wait to ride again soon!-Sara

10/10 would recommend!!!!Hands down the single best thing I’ve ever done!!Wow Chris was an amazing pilot and it was such a smooth and fun ride! Took us over hatcher pass and showed us some amazing views. It was truly a once in a life time experience. Not only was the entire staff super fun to work with and hang out with they were so knowledgeable and friendly and willing to answer any and all of my questions. I’ve never felt so safe in the air! I fly in planes all the time and this was absolutely mind blowing how smooth the ride was! Amazing 360° view. DEFINITELY will be booking another tour with kodiak helicopter tours and pilot Chris Timpano!!If you’re in Alaska this is a must have experience.
