I'm planning on taking the Taku float plane trip. It was
recommended by a friend. Anyone else recommend it? Thanks,

Duane

I have been on both. In my opinion the glacier helicopter is the best of the best tours. I also agree to go with Coastal. It is not necessary to go to Mendenhall Glacier as the other Juneau glaciers are also spectacular- each different and unique even on different trips. www.coastalhelicopters.com you can also try to book Taku Lodge direct as well- www.takuglacierlodge.com

This "friend" probably did not take a glacier helicopter landing??? I have done both- I found the lodge and flight ok, but could have left hours before they did- spent a lot of time eating and getting people through the lines. Once was enough- but the top trip in my opinion is a glacier helicopter landing- 6 trips for me.
