I have never felt compelled to write a review online, until now. In short, this is a lifetime experience worth every penny. Even if we had seen just one bear, I believe we saw over a dozen, I would recommend Alaskan Bear Adventures. The flight seeing tour is a trip within itself worth taking. This trip was so surreal that... More

Can't say enough about this trip ... it was definitely well-worth the price we paid for this "once-in-a-lifetime" adventure! Our pilot & guide, Derek, was fun, informative and very safety-conscious (it's easy to forget that those cute bears can be quite dangerous!).

Why would anyone pay this kind of money to ride in s small plane, land on a beach & get so close to one one of the world's largest predators? Because it's totally worth it!! I'd give 6 stars if it was possible. Very organized and professional operation all around. Rebecca at the sales office was extremely enthusiastic and helpful... More

I spontaneously booked a 7-hour trip with Alaska Bear Adventures and this became the highlight of my trip! Pilot/guide, Derek, was very professional, knowledgeable and fun. We saw quite of few bears both up close on the beach and further away in a meadow. My take away from this adventure was not only what I saw, but what I learned.... More

Our pilots, Jared and Derek, could not have been more professional and fun, and we had a tremendous day. We took a morning flight of more than an hour, and windy conditions prevented our landing (the landing strip is a sandy beach, after all!) A full refund was offered. Nice. We chose though, to try again in the afternoon, and... More

We did this tour with our family of 5 (3 kids ages 9-11). It was an incredible trip. Flying over 100 miles from the nearest civilization and viewing glaciers and the dramatic landscape from a small plane is a great start. Leading on a deserted beach in the middle of nowhere is a great second. Taking a short hike to... More

Four of us did a private trip with Michael for six hours. We saw five bears up close and more from a distance. One curious cub came within 20 feet of us! Michael gave very clear instructions so we felt safe at all times and were able to just feel wonderment at the beauty of the experience. We also saw... More

I don't know what else to say but take this trip. If I had to do it over again I would have skipped Denali and booked this trip twice. The guides are excellent and professional and it is an awesome life experience. I highly, highly, highly recommend this!

If anyone has a bear viewing adventure on their bucket list, these are the people to do it with. Everyone at K Bay Air is professional but friendly making sure we all were well taken care of. From beginning to end, just a great trip.

As soon as our feet hit the sand after landing, we saw wolf and bear tracks. Mike, one of the owners, was our pilot and bear guide. Our son flew "shotgun" next to Mike, what a thrill for him! We came on this bear adventure to see bears and had a cloudy rainy day so did not see the mountains... More
