Default Juneau Helicopter...change worth $150 more???

OK...I'm booked on Era's 4 Glacier tour for $254. I have decided I'd may want to change to Temesco Pilot's Choice but they can't book me for the morning so I can make my afternoon trip w/ Capt Larry. HOWEVER...it turns out the ship has available seats for that morning for $399.
So I need to know if 10 mins additional flight time plus one more landing is WORTH the $150 more I would need to pay to do it Or will the 4 Glacier trip be equally fabulous and I can save the money for other things.
Hey, at least I'm finally down to two choices! I asked if HAL could cancel their seat hold and they won't be released until the day of the trip and that would be too late for me to change.
THANKS

My opinion only: the 4 glacier tour is spectacular on its own. You'll be quite impressed. I'd save the $150 pp and your carefully planned touring schedule.

I agree, save the $150. But with your booking ERA, they do not usually cobook with whale watches and drop off. You will be adding an hour in shuttle time, since you will be doubling back and forth downtown.

Doesn't Orca Enterprises have a morning availability??

I did it this way as mom will be doing the Grand Juneau tour in the morning while I do the helicopter glacier tour, then we meet up for the whale watch.
Thanks, I guess I'll keep Era 4 Glacier knowing it will be wonderful.
