      Most memorable dream ever!
      The whole adventure was rather surreal and amazing. To one minute be in our hot rusty old van and the next being placed gently in the fragrant high alpine by helicopter beside a gorgeous remote lake takes some getting used to comprehending. We had such a memorable amazing time. The paddle boarding was sooo cool. We paddled between icebergs and around the shoreline of the whole lake. The colours and sounds were primordial, the sun was so healing. We floated transfixed staring at the waterfall at the end of the lake wondering how we got there. “It’s like we’re in a simulation, Dad!”. Well we felt like that the whole day. The picnic was out of this world too. Beyond what we have ever had at a picnic before. Chocolate covered strawberries with pistachio sprinkles, Strawberry cheesecake, Canadian bacon maple doughnuts, charcuterie, sandwiches, the most amazing tomato soup we have ever tasted! We didn’t even get to use the silver tongs provided, we just plowed into it. This must be what Oliver twist felt like when he was rescued from the street urchins. I felt like proposing all over again. Our guide, Brent was amazing. After he magically set everything up and packed everything up at the end, he left us to laugh uncontrollably with joy at everything we were experiencing. In no time after a brief walk on the last of winter’s snow in our flip flops we heard the helicopter coming to take us away. Our pilot was so skilled and fun. He took us over to see the mountain bike trail and the Ipsoot glacier before flying back to base. Our whole adventure was as long as a summer nap and we felt like we just lived the most incredible dream together. Woah.

      Wonderful experience!
      Wonderful experience seeing the mountains around Whistler from the air! Our pilot, Nick, was very competent, funny and informative about the area. Landing on the glacier was the cherry on top! 100/100 would recommend.

      Awesome Helicopter tour
      This team from Blackcomb Helicopters absolutely blew it out if the water for the 2 of us. We attempted 2 trips in Alaska during a cruise but weather did not allow this to happen . Alaskan weather is tricky Began with the prompt pick up at our hotel in Whistler to our pre training to boarding to our flight. This team hit an absolute home run!! Such a high lite to our trip north and west trip. Thank you team Blackcomb Helicopters ❤️

      Fantastic Coastal Rockies Flight
      After.a very friendly and professional welcome we were security briefed and took off for a great flight over the lakes, mountains and glaciers. The pilot had a very relaxed and smooth flying style and took us up over Whistler‘s mountaintops to land at a small, remote lake where we heard the marmots whistling (and nothing else). The heli was new and great for taking videos and photos with a lot of plexiglass all around. Great experience, very recommendable. Martin, Germany

      Wonderful experience
      I booked this trip for a surprise wedding anniversary gift for my husband and we loved the experience. The pilot was really knowledgeable about the area and flew over a glacier which was a highlight for us. Really beautiful scenery. My only slight complaint was that we were not advised we were not able to land on a glacier which was what was advertised when booking. We understood why we couldn’t, but felt like we should have been updated about the change as it was one of the main reasons why we booked the trip and only found out whilst on the tour. Regardless, I would highly recommend booking this experience as it is great fun.

      BC Experience
      Wedid the BC experience and got to land on a glacier. None of my family had ever been in a helicopter before so this was a bucket list item. It was amazing from lift off to landing and getting to see the mountain landscape and glaciers up close is very cool. Nick our pilot gave us quite the tour with lots of information on the formations, glaciers and geology. Landing on a glacier was a highlight for sure, unfortunately with climate change these glaciers are going to be gone soon. This glacier has lost about 10 feet of ice since last year, rocks that were never exposed are now exposed on the slope. If you have never done anything like this, our family would highly recommend it.

Wonderful pilot (extremely knowledgeable and professional and kind), friendly front desk staff and smooth operation. Have done several other helicopter tours and this is not to be missed! Stopping on top of the glacier to get our and take photos and see the view was a highlight.

      Beautiful day in Whistler for a helicopter tour and Blackcomb helicopters are certainly no. 1 just had an amazing mountain tour and am very impressed with their professional set up followed through in their employees who were very friendly and knowledgeable. Everything worked seemlessly to make the tour so enjoyable. Weather helped! Would thoroughly recommend. Well done blackcomb Helicopters for making such a wonderful memory.

    We booked our heli elopement well in advance and were looking forward to it. Per my previous discussions with the Company, we were expecting to receive a call a day before the elopement related to the weather conditions in case the weather didn’t look good.. However, we didn’t receive any call. On the day of our elopement, we received a call a couple hours before our flight saying the weather looks good so far but in case anything changes we will call you at 2pm and if we don’t call, it’s expected that we are good for the fight. This was surprising as on the 1st place since we didn’t hear anything from them until a couple hours before the flight instead of the day before.. Later, we didn’t receive any call for them but since I wanted to make sure, I called them at 2.05pm to ask if we are good for the flight. They told us they will call us back if weather is bad in next 5mins as the pilot will be updating in next few mins.. We didn’t hear anything so we left for our flight scheduled at 2.40pm.. When we reached the parking lot at 2.30pm they called us saying the fight is cancelled.. This was very sudden and disappointing given we made all efforts to make sure we are good and we were literally outside ready to board the flight for our elopement.. They did not offer any alternative options such as dates/ times etc even though they knew the booking was for an elopement. We still had a great & beautiful wedding at a different location and made it all work out at the very last minute. The weather was clear and sunny the whole day and days after and we felt like they cancelled on a 10mins notice without any reason or alternative options in terms of timing. We will go for a heli tour on our anniversary next year but definitely NOT with blackcomb helicopters. We DON’T recommend anyone planning any elopement or engagement with blackcomb helicopters since they can ruin your plans any minute even when you have already arrived to fly.

    My husband proposed to me on this helicopter tour, the staff were so friendly and excited for us when we arrived (not that I knew why!). It was great for them to share in our excitement and when we landed they all greeted and congratulated us. The tour was amazing, the scenery was breathtaking and we were able to land on rainbow glacier - it was just the 2 of us and the pilot gave us some privacy as we looked around and my partner proposed. I couldn't have imagined a better way to spend the special day. Amazing.

    We did a full-day Heli-hiking tour around Mount Barbour and Seven O'Clock Mountain. The weather was perfect, full sun and warm. Dave was a fantastic guide and super helpful, accommodative, and great company for the most amazing hike in the mountains! COVID protocols easy to follow and well maintained. The scenery is surreal and so peaceful. Would do this again in a heartbeat. A memory to never forget! :D

    We were collected on time by a charming girl that took us to the helicopter office, and after a brief safety information video, we boarded. We were six people. We sat in front with our pilot , Christian, and four at the back. After we landed on the glaciar at the very top of the mountain we sat at the back so two others sat in front. The views were absolutely amazing. This area is breathtakingly beautiful, and by helicopter one has outstanding views. We booked the tour two days in advance. They have pick up and drop off service. A jacket and good shoes recommended, for the landing on the mountain. One stays approximately 15 minutes. A fantastic experience. Many thanks to our great pilot , he loves flying and had great knowledge.

    The team at BlackComb Helicopters is fantastic. They helped us with the perfect proposal (with their Silver Band Proposal Package). Flying in from outside BC, they were very helpful over the phone and email to ensure the proposal was a success. They were up-to-date on the incoming weather, and made sure to re-schedule our flight as necessary to ensure a successful take off. Our pilot was fantastic during the proposal itself. He kept it a secret and discretely took pictures during the proposal, which turned out so beautifully.

    The helicopters themselves are modern and up-to-date. I wouldn't hesitate to work with BlackComb Helicopters for whatever tour you require. Thanks again to their team!

    My husband and I did the 24 minute tour with a glacier landing during our vacation to Whistler. It was amazing and beyond our expectation. Our pilot was knowledgeable about the area, which made the tour more interesting. He also did some fun turns, without making it scary or nauseating. Standing atop the glacier was so fun and allowed for great pictures. Although it was a bit expensive, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience.

    We took the BC experience which includes a landing on rainbow mountain and it's glacier, a once in a lifetime experience which is worth it's money. Beautiful flight with a well informed pilot which could tell us lots of information when we were enjoying the beautiful snow capped mountains and glacier lakes down below or even besides us.

    Beyond our expectations!

    Great views, pilot was very knowledgable, answering all our questions. We took the 24 minute ride with glacier landing and the views of the glaciers, mountains and lake were amazing!

    We were given 15 minutes once we landed on glacier and that was plenty to take some great pictures from the top.

    I had to dock out 1 star because, there are 2 seats for passengers at the front and 4 seats on the back of the helicopter and for the people who get stuck in the middle of the helicopter, it is hard to get good pictures, because you would have to reach out and take pics. While coming back, we switched places and took window seats, but, the ride down to the base was very quick and happened in less than 2 minutes with not so great views.

    Putting it out here so that people are aware before booking.

    Also, I hope, 24 minutes of ride is split 12 minutes each way so that people can switch seats and have the same enjoyable experience
