Bear Viewing

The Kodiak brown bear, sometimes  known as the Alaskan brown bear, inhabits the islands of the Kodiak Archipelago in southwest Alaska. Its Alutiiq name is taquka-aq.  It is the largest recognized subspecies of brown bear, and one of the two largest bears alive today, the other being the polar bear.  Kodiak Brown Bears range in size from 660 lbs to 1320 lbs and can occasionally reach weights of 1500 lbs.

We offer two tours to uniquely different bear habitats that will create memories that will last a lifetime.  Island Air Service will outfit you with hip boots and take you on a 4 hour tour which includes lunch.  Depending on weather and time of year, we will either fly to Frazer Lake on the southwest side of Kodiak or cross over to the Katmai area on the Alaska Peninsula.  Be sure to bring your camera. On the way to your destination, you will have an opportunity to experience Kodiak's spectacular scenery as you fly over mountain tops, view glaciers and see the wild, remote shorelines of Kodiak Island.
