We (a group of 5 people) flew to Brooks Falls to watch bears catching fish August 25th. Trent is very professional and told us all the things that we need to be aware of. He even reminded me how to use tripod in case that a lot of people were in the platform. The trip is super and we saw 3 bears in the falls and 3 others when we walked out. Will recommend Trent for sure.

The entire experience with Trent was amazing. The flight to Brooks camp was smooth and he did a wonderful job of sharing insights on the landscape, Katmai National Park and the wildlife throughout the flight. My son was even able to sit up front as co-pilot and thoroughly enjoyed having such a cool experience. We were slightly delayed leaving Brooks Falls and Trent was incredibly patient with us as we navigated through a few last pictures. I would HIGHLY recommend Adventure Airways for a trip over to Katmai.

Trent - the owner, piloted us to one of the most magical, thrilling and inspiring places you can go to in Alaska, Brooks Falls Camp. Trent is a professional and confident pilot. His plane is in outstanding condition. He makes you feel comfortable flying over Katmai National Park. If you go to Alaska don’t miss this trip; it’s a trip of a lifetime.

What an experience!! Our family of two adults and one teen were first booked with another company who ended up not being able to take us. So they connected us with Trent at Adventure Airways and we were THRILLED with how things turned out. First, Trent is very personable. That alone makes you enjoy your trip and gives you confidence since he is also the pilot. The plane was clean and well-cared for. Now for the trip. We flew across the bay and landed on a beach at Lake Clark National Park. There was a bear right there clamming and we got to enjoy him for a while. We then walked a short distance to view bears grazing in a meadow. Throughout, Trent was very good at providing us education about the bears, their habits and habitats, as well as some of the plant life. In addition he brought a tripod with a mounted scope so we could see some bears even closer. Overall, we saw about 20-25 bears. It was fantastic! No, we did not see them catching/eating salmon but it was not the season for it yet. But they are fascinating to watch no matter what they are doing. Highly Highly Highly recommend this company!

This is an absolute must do in Alaska. Trent was great at telling us about bears, we saw plenty, and from very close (always felt super safe) On top of that the flight was fabulous and landing on a beach is not something you do every day Really loved it
