Default Skagway Helicopter Glacier Tour

Will be in Skagway Sept 18th. We contacted Temsco to book a helicopter Glacier tour and were told all bookings that day were reserved by the cruise ship. Is this standard practice or were we too late in the game?

Both. It's their standard practice, AND they may be pulling helicopters out of Skagway that late in the cruise season - thus less availability.

Suggestions (in no particular order):
A) Book the tour via the cruise line.
B) Book a privately chartered air service (BIG BUCKS!)
C) Try booking your tour with Temsco, ERA or Coastal in Juneau... it's the same ice-field. As long as you don't have another tour conflicting, Juneau will give you a few more options for the helicopter tours.

Thanks for the advice, Case. We'll see what's available in Juneau.
