We drove to Homer for the day, just to do this outing. I always missed seeing bears when I visited National Parks, so I thought this was a good opportunity to check it off my bucket list. Wow, what a great decision it was. The weather was perfect, with just a few broken clouds, and 60 degree temps. The flight to Katmai was a blast, with fantastic views of glaciers and active volcanoes. We set down on a beach, and after a modest walk, found our first bear of the day. It was not our last, as we encountered over a dozen different bears; sleeping with cub, snoozing alone, taking walks, and of course, eating salmon and flounder from the plentiful streams. They went out of their way to keep us away from other tourists, and make the trip a solitude experience for us. At times, we were within 5 feet of a bear, with no nervousness at all. Tim and Zack were in full control at all times, and we always felt safe. After shooting about 500 photo's, we headed back to Homer on a delightful flight back. Absoulutely fantastic trip, and would recommend Sasquatch Alaska Adventure Co to anyone wanting to have a GREAT bear experience.
