It has been three weeks since my bear viewing and I still look at the pictures and pinch myself. We flew to Katmai National Park from Homer and landed on a small plane that held 10 passengers. I was able to sit up front with the pilot on the way there and it was breathtakingly beautiful and exciting. Landing on... More

I went on this trip with my 18 y old son. We had the time of our life. Before making reservations we got a lot of info and advice by e-mail from Bald Mountain Air. They answered every question we had. The day before the flight we went to check in and got a warm welcome from Heidi at their... More

My sixth time to Alaska and without a doubt I think the most memorable and rewarding thing to do is a bear safari, and I have to say I've been extremely impressed with BMA both times! J.R., our pilot (and stand-up comic hopeful) was fun and professional. The tundra and the bears are incredible! If you're only going to Alaska... More

I would like to thank J.R., the pilot/guide for such precise look out for the bears and intense care for the viewers.... And thank you for taking such gentle care of our 8 year-old daughter Emma.... And thanks to Tony, the other pilot for the beautiful picture of our family with the bear... It was an amazing experience in all... More

OK so you've read all of the reviews for how awesome the trip is...they are true. You get a great fly in and excellent bear viewing for your $650 per person. Here's what you may not know:This is not a stroll along paved or even well worn trails. It is, depending on your age and weight, a strenuous hike across... More

On July 23, 2014 my husband and I had the experience of a lifetime when we flew with Bald Mountain Air to Katmai National Park to view bears fishing in the Brooks River Falls. Our pilot, Tony was fantastic. We had a smooth flight and beautiful views on both to and from Katmai. Tony described the beautiful views and pointed... More

I have to start by saying that my sister went on this excursion. They only had one space open and unfortunately I was unable to go. However, after hearing her experiences Myself and my mother already planning our trip next year and definitely plan to return to Homer and this is at the very top of our list. We were... More

I signed up for this at the last minute and was very afraid of bears beforehand. However, I knew this might be my only chance to do this. Bald Mountain Air was amazing. Our pilot, James Roe, exceeded all expectations. He was very knowledgeable...not only about bears but about the area over which we flew and the area where we... More

Flight: Skilled pilots, clean aircraft, beautiful scenery. During 1.5 hr flight, pilot shared information about scenery and kept us informed of weather conditions and arrival time. We felt safe and in good hands. Pilot (and Bald Mountain Air staff) gave us guidance on food to bring and recommended we eat prior to, or during, the mandatory briefing so once the... More

I was very nervous about this excursion but I didn't need to be. The flight was very smooth with some wonderful scenery. It started to rain after our bear orientation with the rangers but it didn't dampen our spirits. The 1.5 mile walk by ourselves to the bear viewing platform was a bit nerve wracking but apparently my singing was... More
