Our bear viewing season runs June through September to Katmai National Park. In early June, the bears can be found feeding on the sweet grass roots and digging for clams along the shorelines. Once the salmon start to run, they switch to catching salmon in the glacial streams and rivers of this wild coastline.
When you arrive at Hallo Bay or Geographic Harbor on the Katmai coast, you will overfly the bear habitat areas and look for the highest concentration of bears. After picking the landing site, your pilot will land on the shoreline or in a protected slough and drop you off at the beach. From there, you will walk up the beach and set off on your trip. Our trips can be customized to the needs and requirements of our clients. Lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided.
If you are interested in flight seeing on the way back to Kodiak, we can take you to Hallo Bay Glacier and over fly the area and provide you some amazing photo opportunities.
