Awesome! A word so overused but it really describes this experience. Jaimie, our pilot/guide, was terrific. Just the flight was worth the money, but getting on the ground and watching bears as close as 30 feet from us left us speechless. Jaimie kept us safe and got us unbelievable views of the bears fishing in the water. If you go... More

This was our first trip to Alaska and we were dying to see grizzly Bears in the wild. The crew at ABA was awesome. They had everything we needed and the guides were very knowledgeable! We got to spend an hour on the ground viewing wild bears. Derek our guide made sure we had great pictures and kept us safe!... More

What a fantastic and amazing adventure with terrific people. I was very hesitant to do this 6-hour flight, but it was a big thing on my husband’s to-do list. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. We made our reservations in the fall of 2014 based on the time frames of various “salmon runs”; we wanted to see the... More

A bear adventure was something I dreamed of, but never thought I would do. Thanks to Alaska Bear Adventures for the Cessna flight to Katmai and back to Lake Clark on a clear day; the outing into the river bed to view brown bears; the flight back to Homer. Thanks to our pilot/guide, Mike, for making this experience so special.... More

After having nearly everything go wrong this trip, this couldn't have gone more right. Our pilot/guide, Derek, was fun, knowledgeable, and contagiously perky for 630 am. The bears were awesome, they walked within 20 feet of us, and didn't seem to care at all. Everyone was professional and concerned about safety as well as enjoyment. Worth every single penny I...

My daughter did this Short and Sweet late afternoon tour to Chinitna Bay after a quick call. She saw a LOT of bears. Took a ton of pictures and videos. She said the staff was really friendly and she felt completely safe. She said she would definitely do this tour again if she is in Homer.She will talk about this... More

What a beautiful experience! From the moment we book till the end of the flight, we loved everything. We did an afternoon trip to Lake Clark with Jaime and the panoramas from the plane were amazing (worth the money); than we landed on the beach and soon we saw the BEARS (there were more than 15 bears when we arrived)....

On vacation from southern Cali, my parents came on this trip 1 month before me and recommended it to my boyfriend and I. I was skeptical because of the price and the minimal amount of time the tour seemed. WOW was I wrong. 1st off, the staff was very organized and professional. We requested a certain pilot that my parents... More
