I enjoyed tremendously this excursion to Katmai and to Brooks Falls to view brown grizzil;y bears in their habitat. Our pilot Bob took me and nine other passengers on Bald Mountain's float plane from Homer to Katmai, about a ninety-minute ride. The weather was beautiful and it was tremendous scenery from the plane viewing the recent-volcanic mountains, valleys, glacial lakes,... More

I saw 15 Brown Bears at Brooks Falls. From Big Boys to Sows and their precious Cubs. Always an awesome place to visit. This was my 6th trip with Bald Mountain and it was great as usual! Make this trip part of your bucket list!

We had an outstanding trip to see the bears at Brooks Falls. The flight over in the 10-passenger plane was beautiful and we saw many bears at the falls. We felt very safe throughout the trip.

Bald Mountain's service from the main office to end of trip is great....my wife had a million questions about the plane and how safe was the trip. The office agent take over 20 minutes answering to her satisfaction. Turbo prop planes are superior to the old piston ones still being used. We went mid-JL and hit great weather and a... More

Third time AK, first time Katmai! What an experience, from pre-flight instructions, to flight in new/ old Canadian Otter, to knowledgeable park rangers, is was a thrill! And yes, there were bears, grumpy boars, nursing sows and frolicking juveniles one even scratching his back on a tree. (just like on National Geographic)
