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

Took the tour after reading the reviews and recommended by a friend. Truly unbelievable experience after a brief but adequate safety discussion. Flew out in a 6 seater Cessna (son was in copilot seat - what a thrill for him), beautiful views up close of mountains and volcanoes on the way over to Hallo Bay- about 1 hour and 20... More

This tour was the whole reason for out trip and it was more than I could have hoped. We saw at least 20 different bears; at one time we could see 9 bears including cubs. One mother with 2 cubs was within 50 feet of our little group. Our guide was very knowledgeable yet fun; you could tell he cared... More

This day will live with me forever. The whole trip was very well organised with the best safety briefing that I have ever experienced. The flight to Hallo Bay was spectacular over the mountains and volcanos and after landing on the beach we soon saw our first bears. We got closer than I thought possible and I now have fabulous...

This is in the top 3 things we've ever done or seen on vacation. The combination of getting to a remote location and being able to see wild bears up-close was incredible. The bears acted like we weren't even there and showed no interest in the tourists. There were only 20 people in our tour and one other group showed... More
