Charlie, the owner and our guide, seemed to be a careful and safe flyer. He took pains to give us a thorough safety briefing and had along emergency equipment, so we felt that we were in good hands. We flew about half an hour across the Cook Inlet and landed on the shore of Chintna Bay in Lake Clark Park.
We were amazed to see the number of brown bears in the vicinity. A sow and cubs, and 3-4 others all quite near. Charlie saw to it that we observed saftey procedures to avoid disturbing the animals. The bears were close enough for plenty of good photos without a telephoto lens. Charlie was a good guide with a lot of bear lore and respect for the wildlife.
After we took off, Charlie circled the shore of the bay, and we saw even more bears from the air.This flight was a highlight of our visit.
