Trent took us on a beautiful flight over Cook Inlet to Mt Iliamna. We got an up close, unbelievable view of the volcano and surrounding glaciers then went to look for bears and flew threw some canyons. An incredible experience and so very grateful for...More

I had booked Adventure Airways because someone in a review here said Trent was a great pilot and that's what I want. I'm scared of those tiny planes, I want someone who knows what they're doing. We flew off to Katmai to see the bears...More

Had great time in the bear country. Our guide and pilot Trent was very proficient. We saw many bears, few of them from 50 yards distance. Felt very safe and calm in the bear country.

My review is two parts,5 stars for Brooks Falls and 1 star for Adventure Airlines. The bears are not to be missed but when I pay $900 to fly me to Brooks Falls I expect an actual seat in a plane! We had 5 people...More

This is a VERY expensive 1/2 day, so we were very careful in picking a flight. I weigh 250 pounds and had to speak with Trent personally in order to get a flight waiver to go, which spoke volumes about him as a pilot and...More

We recommend without hesitation taking this tour. Our pilot Trent was top notch. He was polite, knowledgeable, professional, and made us feel safe during our bear viewing trip. The flight over to Lake Clark National Park alone was worth every penny we paid, let alone...More

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.

I was nervous and apprehensive about the airplane ride, but let me tell you, our pilot, Ben, was the best! He was certainly-better than any commercial pilot I have ever ridden with! We arrived at the KatMai preserve after an hour plane ride and started...More

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.
