How do I explain how incredible this trip was?! My dad and I have done day-trips with Dave, but this was our first ever overnight! Dave was prepared, knowledgable, and excited to share the bears with us! Every day was a new adventure. We saw a momma bear and her two yearling cubs every day, ran into a playful little... More

I'm a wildlife photography fanatic, and big brown bears are some of my favorite subjects. In the fall of 2014, I took two bear trips with Dave, both of which were outstanding. So naturally, on my return to Alaska in June, 2016 there was no question that I would choose to go back to bear country (Katmai National Park) with... More

Having visited Alaska annually for the last 9 years, a highlight (and must-do) with every trip is our annual trek out to Katmai National Park & Preserve. To say that I'm a "bear fanatic" would probably be a bit of an understatement. If you even have a feeling like you want to see some brown bears ... act on that... More

We spent the day with Dave as our guide in Katmai National Park on a sight seeing bear tour. He was professional, calm and knowledgeable. We really can't say enough great things about him. He guided our family of five (my husband and myself, our two sons who are 16 and 13 and our 10 year old daughter) 4 plus... More

The only words I have that could even come close to describe our experience is absolutely positively amazing!! Dave's knowledge of bears is outstanding! He has a quiet and calm manner in talking to them. Over two and a half days he took us to several spots to sit and watch the bears. Each spot was more amazing than the... More

We’ve seen bears in Denali and elsewhere but wanted a closer encounter with the formidable animals at their natural habitats. Among the many operators of bear tours, AK Adventures stood out in operating small groups, and the reviews about it were invariably positive. So, we decided to go with it and are so very glad that we did. We’re lucky... More

Dave is the consummate professional with a full command of all the skills and attributes of a top notch bear guide. He works hard to know exactly where the bears are and, working with Wes the pilot, he gets his customers to the best spots. This takes a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience, because the best bear activity occurs... More

My friend and I returned to Alaska with our main goal being to go bear viewing with Dave, since our tour four years ago had to be cancelled due to bad weather. Well, it was certainly worth the wait. Being out on the tundra in Katmai viewing the brown bears was the most amazing adventure of my life. Dave has... More

Dave is a true professional! His knowledge of bears, their behavior and their habitat is encyclopedic, and he willingly shares that knowledge with his guests. Dave is active in environmental preservation programs and bear conservation groups, and we learned a lot from him about not only the bears, but also plant life and other animals in the region. We spent... More
