In August my husband, 2 children and I got to go ont this AMAZING tour. The day before the tour we weren't sure whether or not we'd be able to go due to the weather.It was foggy and we had to wait for about an hour because another company had gone out and the pilots were waiting for feedback from them to make sure it was safe to fly to Katmai. When we did take off there was barely any visibility during the flight. We landed and found one amazing bear. She got extremely close and we were all in awe. Jared and Derick (the two guide/pilots) did their best to try to find more bears. We even flew to another beach.For some reason the bears just we not around. Derick and Jared were clearly frustrated, but we were not disappointed with the one intimate encounter we had. Upon return in Homer as we were gathering our belongings Jared came to talk to us. He and Derick were not happy with the tour that we had been offered and so Alaska Bear Adventures offered us another trip!!! Incredibly generous! Of course we did have other plans, but we changed those to be able to check this bucketlist item off twice! And the second time round was no dissappointment either! The weather was great so we did get the gorgeous volcano flight. And this time around we got to see 7 bears! Thanks so much for the amazing trips...it is the first thing the kids talk about when they are asked about their Alaska adventure.
