Yup! real icebergs and real idiots who want chopper pilots to land on them. Luckily the pilots are not stupid.

Bergs seen from Otago coast . Now as far north as Timaru.
These bergs are the remains of the Larsen B shelf that broke off in 2001. Definitely is a case of climate change and yet there are those down here who are still in denial.

For what it's worth, the company indicated that they have 500 stand by bookings all just waiting for a suitable berg. I suppose that so long as things are....uh...."sizzling" for the wedding night, nobody cares if his/her spouse to be to be is first pulled out from the freezer.
