Absolutely amazing......The crew at Seahawk Air are the best. I highly recommend using Roland for a flight out of Kodiak.

My husband and I have done 3 trips with Jo and Roland. Each time has been a very educational and exciting trip. With Roland's expert flying and Jo's knowledge of the Bears, I learn something new each time. I would highly recommend this company for any adventure you are looking for in the kodiak area.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend this tour. The flight to Geographic Harbor on the coast of Katmai National Park included sightseeing and wonderful information from our guide Jo including Kodiak history and information about the bears and what to expect. Once we landed, the plane left us on a tidal flats, where that day... More

The fact spoke for itself. We spent 7 nights in Kodiak. Went out with Sea Hawk for the first time on Day 2 for a 6-hour tour, went out again on Day 4 for another 6-hour tour and went out for the 3rd time on a 1-hour fightseeing tour on Day 7. If we had stayed longer, we would have... More

A fabulous flight over to Geographic Harbor with Roland and Jo giving us history and geographical information as well as spotting whales was both very interesting and exciting. The weather was beautiful and the scenery spectacular! I've been a resident of Kodiak for over 30 years, and have seen bears, but not as up close as this time. We were... More

Our family was very fortunate to get to fly with Sea Hawk Air out to Shuyak Island State Park for 4 days kayaking and hiking in the Alaska backcountry. Not only did they provide the flights to and returning from Shuyak, but we were also able to rent their kayaks at the park. First, the staff is first class in... More

We did a fabulous morning flight with Roland, Jo and 3 others to Hallo bay. On the way out we were lucky to see many whales, otters & jellyfish - but that was nothing compared to the Bears there....... Brilliant & sensitive guiding by Jo meant we got really close to these giants and were privileged to see amazing natural... More

An excellent outing - great flight, pilot and then a great guide on the ground. Roland (Pilot) and Jo (Guide) were wonderful characters, experienced and knowledgeable in their fields and knowledge of Kodiak Island and its environs. What a wonderful day. We were lucky to have arguably the best weather we could wish for, but the experience of the scenic... More

Jo and Rowland run a perfectly organized business. Jo is full of knowledge of the wildlife an the area. She is so at home with the bears that you always feel secure. Rowland is an awesome float plane pilot. He goes out of his way to make sure you saw what you came to see. You can't go wrong with... More
