The guided bear tours consist of a 40-75 minute scenic flight to Lake Clark or Katmai National Park respectively. You and your pilot will hop on the plane in Homer, AK and fly over the Cook Inlet. You and your guide will spend 3 hours walking through the park, where we guarantee you will see bears. You will have the opportunity to walk along the coast and see these magnificent animals. The pilot decides the location each day depending on the bear activity and weather.  We want to give you the best trip possible. Our airplane like all airplanes has a weight limit. Our max weight per passenger is 250 lbs. fully clothed. We do allow about 10 lbs. over the 250 lbs. for a day bag (camera, snacks, water...).

Katmai National Park is located in Southern Alaska. It is most famous for its Alaskan brown (grizzly) bear population. Hallo Bay, located in Katmai, stretches for several sandy miles at the base of the Aleutian Islands made up of many volcanoes. Lake Clark National Park's coast has no roads or towns, but is rich in wildlife. Bears in Chinitna Bay and Silver Salmon Creek, both located in Lake Clark, see people nearly every day and do not see humans as a food source and we strive to keep it that way. We can not wait to show you this beautiful part of Alaska.

Destinations of our bear viewing tours include Chenitna Bay in Lake Clark National Park and Halo Bay in Katmai National Park.

We recommend having as much flexibility as possible the day of your trip. There are times we need to change the schedule around because of weather, last minute cancellations or other things. Having the day open and the ability to change your plans helps all of us. 

Being prepared will help you enjoy your trip to its fullest potential.  

1. Dressing in layers gives you the convenience to be comfortable in all weather and on the plane.  A rain coat can help keep you dry and help shelter you from the wind. We will provide waders to keep your feet and legs dry.

2. Bring Water to drink. 

3. Please bring crew length socks. Socks that cover more than your ankles.

4. Snacks are always welcome but can only be eaten in a particular spot designated by your guide. Eating in the plane is not allowed. This will help reduce the bears curiosity of the airplane.

5. Firearms and bear spray are not allowed on the airplane for everyone's safety.

We have seen some people not healthy/fit enough for this activity. We have limited first aid equipment. If someone has a heart attack, it will take time to get the proper care they need. You do not need to be a marathon runner, but you do need to be able to be on your feet and walking for 3 hours. You also need to be able to climb into the airplane mostly unassisted.
