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

My husband and I did Sea Hawk Air's Grizzly Bear viewing tour last week (June 21) and let me tell you, it was AWESOME!!! Walking around those huge, majestic animals was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity and they did not disappoint. We were able to get up really close with several bears with truly gorgeous scenery as a... More

I would highly recommend sea hawk air! We saw two to three times as many bears as anyone else that went with other company's. We have used them twice because the first time was so amazing. They also provide a great box lunch and are good to point out history facts and look for other wildlife while on the flight... More

I have used Sea Hawk whenever I go to Uyak Bay on Kodiak Island, Alaska. The Sea Hawk Air family have always gone above and beyond every time, from picking us up at the airport to taking us to the store to pick up the last bit of items we needed to get, it was always done with a smile.... More

Roland and Jo are one of the best and most experienced Seaplane Tour operators on Kodiak Island. My wife and I have fond memories of our experiences out in Katmai National Park. They make you feel at home and take the extra steps to make their clients Alaskan experience one they will always remember.....

This excursion in the float plane from Kodiah to Hallo Bay was an awesome adventure. We scouted up-close glaciers, snow-capped mountains, small islands, and landed. Rolan, the pilot, did a great job providing photo views. Jo, our "bear encyclopedia" guide, educated us about bears' likes and dislikes. She was so experienced and knowledgable. We learned so much. We saw bears... More

One member of our group is usually very motion sick, so we were worried about taking a float plane trip for bear viewing. Sea Hawk was recommended to us, as they fly a Beaver, the most stable of the small planes. Our trip was great, with overhead viewing of whales in the harbor on the way. Rolan and Jo know... More

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
