This has got to be the most awesome wildlife viewing I had ever joined! I saw 15 bears at the Falls and at least 9 more in the vicinity of Brooks Lodge.
The bears at the Falls are fishing for salmon and the two elevated...More
As good as the hype you’ve heard - but try to stay in the park to maximize your experience. The people who fly in and out on a day trip take a risk. Sometimes the bears are there all day, sometimes mostly in the morning,...More
Wow wow and WOW! My partner and I did the day trip to Brooks Falls with Rusts Flying Service - it's not cheap but if you can manage it I can't recommend it highly enough! It cost us $1,200pp by the time we lost 30...More
This was the best excursion on our 2 week vacation in Alaska AS WELL AS one of the top experiences of all of our vacations. We were there early July and stopped counting bears we encountered at 25. Just a wonderful day seeing grizzlies fishing,...More

I felt like this was a once in a lifetime experience! We took a 20 minute float plane from King Salmon and spent the day here. It is hard to put into words how beautiful the Alaskan wilderness is. It was so awesome to see...More
