We’ve seen bears in Denali and elsewhere but wanted a closer encounter with the formidable animals at their natural habitats. Among the many operators of bear tours, AK Adventures stood out in operating small groups, and the reviews about it were invariably positive. So, we decided to go with it and are so very glad that we did. We’re lucky... More

Dave is the consummate professional with a full command of all the skills and attributes of a top notch bear guide. He works hard to know exactly where the bears are and, working with Wes the pilot, he gets his customers to the best spots. This takes a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience, because the best bear activity occurs... More

My friend and I returned to Alaska with our main goal being to go bear viewing with Dave, since our tour four years ago had to be cancelled due to bad weather. Well, it was certainly worth the wait. Being out on the tundra in Katmai viewing the brown bears was the most amazing adventure of my life. Dave has... More

Dave is a true professional! His knowledge of bears, their behavior and their habitat is encyclopedic, and he willingly shares that knowledge with his guests. Dave is active in environmental preservation programs and bear conservation groups, and we learned a lot from him about not only the bears, but also plant life and other animals in the region. We spent... More

I went on a bear trip with Dave on Aug 13 th, 2013. This was my 2 nd trip with Dave. Last visit in 7-2011 the bears were in the meadows with glaciers and beautiful terrain. The number of differant types of photo shots I was able to capture was purely due to Dave's experience and desire to give me... More

Took a photographic group trip with Dave in August 2012 to Katmai. Dave was always in control with a calm and relaxed approach and was able to get us incredible photo opportunities by understanding both what we as photographers wanted in terms of light and background whilst at the same time knowing how the bears would behave and predicting their...

We were in Katmai with Dave in August 2012. Dave is a calm, organised and highly knowledgable guide who ensured we were able to gain the best photographic opportunities with the bears. Dave ensures your safety with fair but firm rules, without going over the top with instructions. He was prepared to stay in the field with us all day,... More

I thought I had already reviewed this - I apologize Dave for taking so long! My husband and I did a day trip with Dave on our honeymoon in June 2012. It was absolutely the best experience of our trip. We had an amazing time. We were the only ones booked that day, so it ended up being a personal... More

Dave is an amazing guide. He is knows the bears, and the environment. He answered our endless questions with patience and thoughtful answers. His awareness and respect for... More

Bears!!!! Best vacation ever! Dave picked a great camp site and great place to view bears. Get great view of salmon coming in with tide. Harbor seals and bears feeding on salmon. And sea gulls and eagles cleaning up.
