We provide guided bear viewing trips into Katmai and Lake Clark National Parks. We will ensure an intimate experience into the wilderness as seen in the Disney movie "Bears". We usually limit our groups sizes up to six, but can accommodate larger parties.

Our guided trips depart Beluga Lake in Homer and Lake Hood in Anchorage. You will enjoy an incredible sightseeing flight (45-90min) over the "Ring of Fire" volcanoes, glaciers, and wilderness in route to where the bears are most numerous. We provide hip waders, snacks, water, and light rain gear.

Our trips start at $599 a person.

Note: Guests need to be capable of walking several hundred yards in sand and mud.

Join us for a "Bucket List Experience"!!

Charlie was very informative, congenial, respectful of the wildlife and it was amazing to see the bears, the volcanoes, the scenery was breathtaking. The tides were a challenge for landing that day, but Charlie is an excellent pilot. Just to see the power of these remarkable animals. I had to pinch myself to believe I was there. As an amateur...

The bear seeing adventure was awesome! Charlie ensured everyone had a good time and learned about the habits of the bears. He was so good at what he did that one was immediately put at ease when daring something like this. He was an awesome pilot and it was one of our favorite adventures in Alaska. We would recommend this... More

We went with Tim on a terrible foggy day to Lake Clark NP to see bears. He tried to go to another spot with us but the fog was just to dense and we ended up at this beautiful place and saw lots of brown bears. He was very knowledgeable and could answer all questions that occurred. We felt very... More

We stopped by Charlie's office to inquire and ended up scheduling a tour. I don't like to fly but felt instantly comfortable with Charlie. We flew through beautiful terrain and spotted dozens of bears from the air. After landing, there were 22 bears within fairly close proximity to us. My husband is a photographer and we were able to get... More

Charlie, the pilot, is a very experienced flyer. He knows the area quite well and easily found multiple bears, including a mother and 2 cubs. I enjoyed the flight so much that I also took a tour of the areas glaciers. I felt very secure in his floatplane! I am making plans to return next year. He is located near... More

We walked in and got reservations for next morning. Charlie our pilot was excellent, Saw approximately ten bears grazing in the fields. One bear came quite close but felt quite safe. Had great views of the valleys and mountains on our return to Homer which was an extra bonus. Highly recommend to others

Excellent and amazing experience. Charlie is a nice and clever guy, He knows very well the terrain, and where do the bears hide... We could see many bears (10 to 12 at least), and the unforgetable experience of one "Mummy bear" feeding its 2 cubs, at only 300 meters distance (with binoculars, of course). On our way back in the... More

My daughter, myself and a friend booked our bear viewing trip far in advance. Our trip turned out to be an amazing one. Charlie gave us a fantastic plane ride. I was very impressed with his aviation skills. The bears were scarce but the gorgeous day & Charlie's expertise made up for it. I plan go go again with hopes... More
