We've been out with Bald Mountain Air two different times and they never disappoint. The first trip was to Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park and the second was to another area of Katmai National Park. The floatplane ride was great both times and there were plenty of grizzlies to take pictures of. Also, at Brooks Falls it was amazing... More

Went on a wet, rainy day but the views of the bears was awesome! The walk to the falls is fairly easy. There are covered areas with seats available at the beginning and end of the short hike, restrooms, and even a small store. There were children at the camp.

This was our second experience with BMAS. Last year they had to cancel our flight in the last minute due to strong wind. They offered to book another day but we did not have the time. They were very nice and gave our money back very efficiently. This year we tried again and what a success: we had an amazing... More

I have been 2 weeks ago with BMAS to Brooks Falls in Katmai! ..and it was an super amazing experience again! You know the pic where the salmon jumps into the mouth of the bear? THAT is Brooks Falls!!! Brooks is a nice and convenient place to see these huge Katmai-bears: there are well maintained hiking trails to the viewing... More

I visited Brooks Falls on July 21, 2015 with Bald Mountain Air. What a great experience from the people who work at the office to the pilot who flew me over there. I saw 16 Brown Bears at the Falls that day and a few more on the path to the Falls and on the beach. Be sure to take... More

From the nice lady at the Homer Spit office to the Bears, everything met or exceeded our expectations. They guarantee bears, and they delivered. We were blessed with a great weather day so that added to it, but the pilot was personable and competent, the flying was well done, the time spent at Katmai N.P. was great. We had plenty... More

This was a great trip. Even before we landed I had lost count of how many Bears I'd seen. On the ground, the Pilot/Guide was great. We saw lot's of Bears close up. They basically ignored us for the most part. One grazing male approached to about 25 yards, not even slightly interested in the tour group. We also saw... More

Went out on the first trip of the year, June 1, to Swikshak Lagoon in Katmai National Park. Tony, our pilot and guide, flew the plane brilliantly and always made us feel safe and under control, even during a beautiful between-the-peaks fly out over the glaciers. Experience of seeing the grizzlies so close and having them seem so comfortable with... More

It's pricey but so worth it. Spend the day with a bunch of bruins and have Gary Porter fly you and show you the world of the brown bear.
