Thanks so much for all the info!! We booked the tour through Carnival and I think the name of the company is alaska helicopter tours. That's the name of the website anyways.
I am excited, just really nervous too! We saw this on the travel channel a couple years back and once we decided to do the Alaskan cruise that we had to do this excursion, even though it is quite a bit of money.
My husband is a large man, so I am kind of worried about him being too large to go on the helicopter. That is why I asked about if they weight you. I hope he is under their weight limit so we can both do it... do you know anything about that? I read something about if someone is over 250lbs you have to pay extra or something, but I am not sure how that works.
thanks again for all the help you have given me!
