“Bear View & Fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

This was the best part of our vacation. The flight seeing and fishing were a trip of a lifetime! Our guide was excellent at getting to know us and the kids loved him.

“I'm a paying customer with feelings!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We were very disappionted in how we were treaded. The fight was fine and kept us safe and the fishing was also great.
So if you don't mind being treated like crap and have them look down their nose at you, go for it.

“nice fishing trip, but limited bear viewing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

we are a group of 4 on vacation for 2 weeks in Alaska. We booked Talon Air because of their brochure touting excellent salmon fishing and bear viewing. This was a fishing trip- not a bear excursion. Our guide, Matt was fantastic. Wolverine creek did not yield any salmon, but we did see the one black bear there. Headed out deeper into the lake where we finally caught 5 salmon. Matt took us to a secluded spot so we could grill up the salmon right on the boat-delicious!
My only recommendation to Talon Air: Revise your brochure, and put more pictures of the fishing on it vs. the pictures of bears, as it is very misleading.

“First rate experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

$315 per person, fly-out in a 12 seat Float plane, 30 minute flight to Wolverine creek area. 5people on boat including guide. All fishing equip provided. We went right to the spot where hundreds of sockeye were gathering at the foot of the falls, caught our limit of sockeye salmon, saw a black bear, bald eagles, and enjoyed the whole experience. Great guide, didn't talk too much or too little. I would do it again!

“Great fishing and bear watching in June 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

This is the second year we have been on the fishing/bear watching trip with Talon Air. Mark is an amazing guide and both years we have caught our limit and seen quite a few bear and numerous eagles. This trip will not disappoint!!!
