Sea Hawk Air provided the best service and experience ever. Will, the pilot and Jo, the guide were the best. It was our first time in the float plane and bear watching. Will is very funny, entertaining and an excellent pilot. Jo has an enormous experience with the terrain and knows the individual bear habits and character very well. Will... More

We booked a flight with Seahawk but due to high demand, Jo chartered a plane from another company. There were other groups on Hallo Bay when we were there. Very soon it became obvious that Jo knew the territory and the inhabitants (bears) very well. She led us cautiously and safely through the meadows and we saw about a dozen... More

My husband and I have lived on Kodiak Island for a little over a year due to a Coast Guard transfer, and booking a bear viewing tour was on our list of must-dos. This company was recommended by a co-worker of mine who was raised on Kodiak and spoke very highly of the owners. We weren't disappointed! From the moment... More

Used Sea Hawk as transport for a remote camp visit on Kodiak Island, Alaska. Great service from airport pick-up, supermarket stop-off & the outbound flight itself. Running commentary from Willie the pilot through headsets was informative & kept our minds off the queeziness! Return flight was via a different route to show us more of this fabulous island. He didn't... More

Bottom line: choose this company. This was absolutely a highlight of our trip. However, there are a lot of bear viewing companies and they are not all the same quality. Clearly I did not do more than one, but I can say that this company was well-run. Not only did we see lots of bears up close, but we always... More

I was really looking forward to this trip and now I know why, it was awesome! It started with a scenic flight in the float plane with pilot Willy, who was very informative and great at spotting wildlife, such as bears, deer, bear tracks, goats and some whales. He circled the plane a few times so we could take a... More

Our first trip to Alaska was based on our bear viewing desire. Our choice of Seahawk was perfect! It began with Willy's inviting demeanor and knowledge of the area. His travelogue on the way to Katmai was the best. And once we reached Jo, she gladly shared her love for her bears. She found our 4 person group 'perfect' bear... More

The scenery, the bears, and the staff could not have been better. We were greeted by friendly helpful staff who fitted us with waders for our bear viewing. Willie assisted us in boarding the airplane and we were off to see spectacular views from the air. We were blessed with a clear sunny day and Willie went out of his... More

Several sources had said that Bear viewing by float plane was a must and Sea Hawk was the company to go with. They were not wrong. Willie our pilot was great, and a great whale and otter spotter too. Jo our bear guide I suspect knows more about bear behaviour, interactions between bears and humans than most "scientists". She enables... More

For an incredible and uniquely Kodiak experience, take a bear viewing trip with Jo and Rolan of Sea Hawk Air - it will give you a memory of a lifetime. I have had the good fortune to take 3 bear viewing trips with them over the past 2 years - in May, June, and July - and each one was... More
