ACCESSIBILITY SCORE – 5/5
Era Helicopters Is based out of Juneau, Alaska, and they provide flight tours over the incredible and vast landscape surrounding Alaska’s capital city. They are 100% accessible to individuals with disabilities, which is why I was more than willing to pay extra for this level of service. They used a modified stair lift to get me from my wheelchair at ground level up to the second row of the helicopter. At all times I was fully safe and secure. The bathrooms in the offices were also accessible, and there were no steps to negotiate. I knew I would not be able to get out of the helicopter during the glacier landings, but that was okay. I still had a wonderful view from my window seat, and the pilot was more than willing to take my phone and shoot as many photos as I wanted. Their customer service was absolutely outstanding, and they made sure that all of my mobility needs were taken care of. I would highly recommend Era Helicopters as a tour option if your cruise ship docks in Juneau, or you happen to be passing through!
