it is a real bucket list experience.. seeing Alaskan Brown Bears in their natural habitat across Cook Inlet from Homer.. It starts with a wonderful floatplane experience in a deHavilland Otter.. It was windy the day we went, but the flight was smooth.. The scenery included a flyover of the magnificent Augustine Volcano.. It's the closest you'll ever be to... More

Saved the best for last or almost last. I raised my concern about being so close to wild bears and having our own lunches with us. The girl said they won't care about your tuna fish sandwich they have fresh Salmon. Did they!!! What an experience 30 feet to the Bears. Got some great photographs. The ride on the plane... More

An experience beyond words! Prior to the trip, we were given thorough directions and guidance for safety and just what to expect-down to how the mossy ground surface would feel on our trek. Our pilots/guides were knowledgeable and helpful. During our flight, we were given info on the various landforms below, etc. And, no words describe the beautiful scenery or... More

Even though the office wasn't scheduled to be open that early, we were greeted warmly by Charlotte, who told us that they had two cancellations for that mornings flight to Katmai. We were able to book those two spots and thanks to Charlotte's efforts made it to... More

Fantastic organisation. Safe and thorough with their H&S briefing. Knowledgeable staff. You get to Brooks Falls about 10 am and leave about 15.30 pm. Expensive but so definitely worth it

The DeHavilland Otter flight from Homer, AK to Naknek Lake (Brooks Camp) was memorable. The aircraft was in excellent condition with complete IFR equipment. The pilot gave an excellent preflight explaining safety issues and the schedule for the day. The day of bear viewing at Brooks Falls was stunning. My photographs of bears fishing, eating, and loafing bring back wonderful... More

Everything was well planned by this company The right equipment, detailed talk before taking off, First rate pilot/guide, constantly working to give us the best experience. We also chose them because of their DeHavilland Single Turbine Otters on floats.

Our fly-in to Katmai Nationalpark with Bald Mountain Air Service was fantastic, amazing, wonderful, windy, informative, extra ordinary. Our bush pilot was a perfect guide with a solid knowledge about the grizzly bears. We will never forget this awesome lifetime tour..
