We lead you to some of the most amazing places in Alaska where you can experience wild Alaskan brown bears in their natural habitat. The area we fly to is in the middle of the largest population concentration of brown bears in the world! This is a wilderness tour, we walk along the same trails as the bears do, sit on the same river banks as they do and observe them as they go about their day to day Life. There are no barriers, fences or platforms separating us from the bears and other wildlife. Depending on the time of year which you choose to come you can expect to see the bears grazing on sedge grass, digging up clams, playing together, courting each other, resting, and fishing.
Bear viewing is our passion, the reason we are in business and we are committed to a sustainable business. On our tours in the parks we follow strict leave no trace policies and behave in a way that has the least impact on the bears and other wildlife. Like the sasquatch our goal is always to leave only tracks.
All of our bear viewing tours depart from the airport in Homer Alaska and fly past glaciers and volcanoes along the rugged coastlines of Katmai National Park and Lake Clark National Park. They are perfect for professional and amateur photographers, naturalists, wildlife viewers, National Park enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys spending time in a beautiful wilderness.
On a typical Day tour we depart in the morning, usually around 8:00 but the departure time may change slightly since we work around the timing of the tides to allow for the best viewing, and allow enough time in the park before the high tide forces us to depart from the beach.
The flight to the bear viewing area will take between 1 hour and 1 ¬º hours depending on the area which the guide decides to go to and the route of flight that we take to get there. On the flight over we fly past some of the most amazing and dramatic scenery in Alaska. We have the opportunity to see at least 7 different active volcanoes, giant glaciers and maybe whales in the water below us. When the weather allows we always fly over the top of an active volcano on the way. Many clients say the flight over to the bear viewing area is worth it by itself.
We fly 2 Cessna 206 airplanes equipped with oversize tires for landing on the soft beach or in rough areas. Each plane can carry up to 5 passengers. The pilots are the guides as well and planes are parked on the beach and while we hike into the park where the bears are. We never spend less than 3 hours hiking around in the park observing the bears and other wildlife.
On the flight back we try to take a slightly different route so clients can see a little more of Alaska from the Air. We generally get back in the early afternoon at about 14:00.
