The flight was breathtaking—glaciers, volcanoes, Cook Inlet. Excellent and friendly pilot. Saw too many bears to count—swimming, fishing, running, playing. Several sets of moms and cubs. Very suitable for my 78 year old mom and teenage son. Highly recommend this outfit and experience.

For a day like no other observing bears in their natural habitat, give Trent at Adventure Airways a call. Incredible trip to the Katmai National Park!

I did not price Steller Air so I can’t compare. Does Steller Air go to the Katmai Preserve? Not all bear-watching trips go there. You definitely want to see the bears catching salmon at Brook Falls in the Katmai Preserve.
