15 Minute Glacier Discovery Flight Tour
In just 15 minutes, Marathon Helicopters can give you an amazing bird's eye view of what makes Alaska such a special place. Look for otters, seals and sea-lions as you cross over Resurrection Bay before following 4th of July Creek up into the Chugach Mountains where you'll soar over glacier carved valleys, bursting waterfalls, braided streams and four different hanging glaciers. Everyone is guaranteed a window seat, so be on the lookout for mountain goats, moose and bear as you take in the sights! Headsets are included, so your pilot can provide commentary, answer questions and tell you more about this incredible location.
This flight-seeing tour takes you eastward from Seward Alaska Airport and heads across Resurrection Bay. Travel over the ridge of Mt. Alice and into an area locally known as Unlikely Valley. Soar above hanging glaciers that are continuing to carve the area below and, after exploring those glaciers, pop over to Godwin Glacier and search for bears and goats along the way. Upper glacier lakes, waterfalls, and fast flowing glacier-fed rivers make this one spectacular trip.
All helicopters offer a window seat to everyone, allowing for the best experience possible. Your pilot is experienced, enthusiastic and can't wait to show off Seward, Alaska!
