Our family was very fortunate to get to fly with Sea Hawk Air out to Shuyak Island State Park for 4 days kayaking and hiking in the Alaska backcountry. Not only did they provide the flights to and returning from Shuyak, but we were also able to rent their kayaks at the park. First, the staff is first class in... More

We did a fabulous morning flight with Roland, Jo and 3 others to Hallo bay. On the way out we were lucky to see many whales, otters & jellyfish - but that was nothing compared to the Bears there....... Brilliant & sensitive guiding by Jo meant we got really close to these giants and were privileged to see amazing natural... More

An excellent outing - great flight, pilot and then a great guide on the ground. Roland (Pilot) and Jo (Guide) were wonderful characters, experienced and knowledgeable in their fields and knowledge of Kodiak Island and its environs. What a wonderful day. We were lucky to have arguably the best weather we could wish for, but the experience of the scenic... More

Jo and Rowland run a perfectly organized business. Jo is full of knowledge of the wildlife an the area. She is so at home with the bears that you always feel secure. Rowland is an awesome float plane pilot. He goes out of his way to make sure you saw what you came to see. You can't go wrong with... More

I always wanted to know what it was like to be in the bears backyard. I've seen them out hiking before, but always observed them at a distance, or just got a fleeting glimpse of them. This was different. It was Me and them. If they wanted to have me for lunch, there was nothing stopping them. The cool thing... More

My wife and I took an Alaskan cruise with Holland America that made a brief stop in kodiak on the 8th of July. Our stop was from 7am until 2pm. We really wanted to see bears during our trip to Alaska so contacted sea hawk to see if a trip was possible during the limited time we had in port.... More

We started out with very high expectations, this being a dream of my husbands since he was a little kid. The first day we went to Frazier Lake to see the bears feed on salmon, it was so cool that we were sure what we had seen and done could not be rivaled. Well, the next trip we did with... More

It has been a year since I had the great adventure with Sea Hawk Air on the Katmai Peninsula. What a grand, amazing treat that was! Jo's expertise calmed my unsettled nerves within the first 10 minutes of landing. Especially when our pilot, Willy, proclaimed, "See you in four hours..." and left us there! Her knowledge and desire to calmly... More

We had and an amazing bear view. At one time we were surrounded by about 12 bears all doing their own thing. We were even able to see cubs interacting with their mothers. Jo provided binoculars to those of us without and raincoats as well since we had a little rain. Nothing could put a damper on this day though.... More

Went on a bear viewing flight on June 30th. Saw lots of bears, mountain goats and deer from the air on the way to the bear viewing site. We saw at least 10 bears at the fish ladder we were at and the bears were doing it all. Roland our pilot and guide was more than anyone could ask for.... More
