I did a bear viewing with Sasquatch. I'm a solo traveler, they were able to squeeze me in last minute. Professional environment, raze of booking, friendly and knowledgeable guides, great time overall!

The first company we wanted to book a bear tour with was booked but told us that Sasquatch May have openings. On the morning of our tour, we were waiting in the parking lot when Zack called us to let us know the tour was being pushed back to 10am due to the weather. We were very grateful for that. When we all got to the plane (there was 2 other customers in addition to my husband and myself), we were given a very short safety briefing—basically when the door handle was this way, it was unlocked and the other way meant it was locked. When I went to buckle my seat belt, I could not find the other part to the belt. Oh, it was not secured to any part of the plane, so let’s just hook it on to something. When Zack started the plane, it backfired very loudly and sputtered to life. We flew for about 45 minutes to Lake Clark National Park. We did see some bears which was the highlight of this trip. Zack’s assistant had a camera and a tripod. We were told that we would be sent an email link with all the photos that were being taken. I did not take a lot of photos because she was taking quite a few. Well, it has been 2 weeks and I have yet to get a link for the photos. I have tried to call and did not get an answer. I know Sasquatch has the correct email address because I got an email from them with my payment receipt and a separate email asking for a review. Flying back from Lake Clark to Homer, I felt a very cool breeze and that is when I noticed that my door had come unlocked. I feel like as a pilot, it should have been his priority to make sure that all of the doors were locked. Looking back on this trip, I am happy to have the pictures I have of the bears, but I do not think I would book a trip with Sasquatch Adventure again. I would book with a different company. It would be nice if they would send a link for the digital photos as promised.

So Sorry that you were disappointed with some of your impressions and that you didn't receive the link to your pictures. We email the link out and many of them come back as undeliverable addresses. Its easy to miss a letter or a number. If you send me your email to our general contact I'll be happy to resend the link and I will double check the email list on the reservation system to resend as well. There are some great shots of close bears and I understand you would like them. Regarding our extremely safe and well maintained aircraft: The seat belts are designed to clip on and off relatively easily since we are constantly re configuring the layout. When one is bumped off accidentally while loading as passengers shuffle in awkward boots I clip it back onto the hard point on the airframe as per the manufactures specs, never just "any old part of the plane". It backfired, I guess you would think that after over 10,000 hours bush flying I would learn to prime it perfectly every time but I over primed a bit and the engine blows out the excess fuel, a backfire. It happens and its harmless. If you hit the handle up the door comes unlocked. That's why I explained it in the briefing. It may have let a little more air through but it is still safe since it is nearly impossible to open the doors in flight (120 Knots of wind is keeping it closed).

Yes it is expensive - but this was the highlight of my time in Alaska. My husband and I ended up (luckily) on a private trip with Zach as the other couple scheduled never showed up. The flight to Lake Clark was so cool. We went right by the peak of Mt Iliamna on the way. Zach was a complete professional, excellent pilot, and easy to talk to. It was great getting pick his brain about the bears. And oh wow the bears. I didn’t want this to be some sort of zoo experience and it definitely wasn’t. As soon as we landed a big lady grizzly walked past our airplane and lazily on to the water. She barely noticed us. We followed her to the creek and then she walked back in front of us maybe 15 yds away. It was incredible. We then walked out onto the flats as the tide went out and saw probably 12 other bears all just fishing and searching for clams. They barely noticed us! It was amazing to see them so close and in their natural habitat. When we arrived back to the airfield, they had a snack plate waiting for us. The whole trip was around 6 hours (9-3) which was perfect for us. We would HIGHLY recommend this trip with Sasquatch. I obviously don’t know about other companies to compare but our experience with them was superb.

It was an incredible experience. We were a party of 4, so the trip was just us. We were not sure what to expect since we had seen a bunch of pictures of the Brooks Falls and that was our original idea. The tour with Zach was a million times better than anything we could have imagined. We went to Lake Clark and we walked among the bears, we saw mothers and cubs, they were fishing, playing around, napping, we saw at leas 12-15 bears and 7 of those up close. Zach is an absolute profesional, he made us feel safe at all times Despite how close we got to the bears, he was very knowledgable and an excellent pilot. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Alaska, it is pricey, we were doubtful, but we are so glad we did it, we would do it all over again.

Comments from our group: “Seeing Flash (sow bear) sprint through the river, leap upon a salmon and then breathing really hard afterwards!” “Flying around Mount Douglas and being surprised by the color of the glacial lagoon of Spotted glacier.” “The iconic shape of Augustine volcano.” “The fuzzy butts!” “Nap time alongside the bears.”

Those are two of my very favorite bears too! Lippy had his scars (torn lower lip hanging down earned him his name) before I met him, obviously no stanger to a bear fight but always really mellow around us. I've know flash ever since she separated from her mother though, and watched her grow into one of the best fishing bears on the river.
