The good: I will start by saying the Pilot/guides were very nice. We got lucky and had great weather so we could do some flightseeing of a volcano. The bad: We had to wear these hip boots for the "adventure" instead of are normal shoes. When we landed on the beach (Cool) we walked 75 yards down the beach to... More

This experience rates in the top two or three of a 70-year life of global travel. Neither of us can find the words to describe how extraordinary it was. Set aside all imagined worries and go along with Michael and his team for something superb that you will never ever forget. Equipped with waders, absolutely no food and some sound... More

Our early July bear watching adventure to Katmai with K-Bay Air started with a check in at their Homer Spit offices for weigh in the afternoon before our trip. We were told to be at their hanger at the Homer airport the next morning at 8am sharp - not 7:45am, not 8:15am. So we arrived a few minutes early and... More

My wife and I went on one of K Bay's bear viewing flights on August 26, 2013. We had a full plane- our guide Jared and 5 "visitors". Jared was a great pilot, flying down low as we went to Katmai so we could see moose, bears, and the great scenery. As soon as we landed and got out of... More

This was the high light of our 2-week tour in Alaska. Worth every dime. Our pilot was excellent, the view was awesome, and the bears simply crazy and unbelievable. We went to an Africa Safari trip last year, this is as good as our Africa trip. Both trips were once-in-a life time experiences, except this one is much closer to... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Alaska . We had the best guide and pilot Jared he was excellent with both us but especially with our children . We saw nine bears and a mother and her cub . Watching them chasing salmon up the river was wonderful. The whole experience was amazing. Highly recommended.

On August 14, 2013 we four grandparents took two grandsons aged 10 on a trip none of us will ever forget. We must say everything was even more wonderful than we could have ever imagined. We got really close to lots of bears and felt perfectly safe with our calm, cool,courteous and experienced pilots and guides. The plane ride itself... More

Had a great trip with our pilot/guide, Mike. They had told us what to expect, what to bring so we were ready. Met at 7:00am and had a quick safety briefing regarding the plane before taking off for Katmai. A smooth flight, Mike pointed out volcanos and other features along the way. Landed on the beach below Mount Douglas and... More

If we could recommend only one thing to do while in Alaska it would be to take this trip. Our guide, Jared, was amazing! He was a wonderful pilot and also very knowledgable about all things "bears". We never dreamed we could be so close to these beautiful creatures. We followed them around for three hours and watched them fish... More

This is the first review I have ever written but since this trip was nothing short of spectacular I had to write something. Our trip was on July 18th (I know it is September) with my son, four other individuals and Mike was as our pilot. The reason I am writing now is because I just completed a hard cover... More
