When our plans to go to Kodiak Island & do a bear tour fell through...a quick phone call to A.B.A and they fit our group of 4 right in, the very next day. A quick drive down to Homer and away we went. I believe that our pilot's name was "Jason". He got us up close (No Binoculars needed) to a Mama Coastal Brown Bear and her twins, in a meadow. We also saw a large group of bears out on the sand bars catching the salmon coming in with the tide. An un-expected treat was a flight around an actual active Volcano. Awesome trip! Sorry I don't have a photo...they are still on the camera.

Mind blowing experience with amazing pilots! The flightseeing alone is worth it, especially in Katmai. Add the incredible opportunity to observe wild bears close up behaving as if you are not there and this is the experience of a life time. The pilots are the best - knowledgeable, keeping you safe, and so fun to spend time with. I can't say enough good things about them. You will not regret doing this and will have missed something special if you don't!

Our pilot and guide Derek did an excellent job of getting us close to the bears so that great photos could be taken. I really appreciated his efforts to make this an overall great experience for everyone in our group, and his sense of humor was very entertaining.

Splitter day in the Katmai National Park. Unbelievable experience with Kay Bay Air, Alaska Bear Adventures, and with our guide Joe. Extensive safety measures concerning the wildlife as well as the pandemic happening now, we always felt safe and sound. Our guide, Joe, had vast knowledge on the habitat of the area, which enabled us to watch coastal brown bears in their natural habitat- from a close and safe distance...something we could never do on our own. This is a top notch establishment, and we will always use and recommend them regarding to Homer, Alaska. Cheers from your fellow outdoor professionals, Craiger and Dana.

Flying out from Homer to Katmai was an unforgettable adventure. Derek our guide was amazing , knowledgeable and fun . No doubt Katmai is the home of Brown Bears . walking by the beach , crossing the river , watching bears in the fields was incredibly beautiful . Plenty of time with Bears and cubs at different spots makes the day more adventurous . Simply loved the adventure. Highly recommended.
