A very well organised and enjoyable day trip. The bears were still at Brooks Falls at the end of August this year, so that was our destination. We saw bears at the falls, and plenty of salmon jumping, and a mother and two cubs, who...More

This was one of the best things I have ever done! I could not believe how close we got to the brown bears. We watched mums catch fish for their babies. They played right in front of us. Our plane landed right on the beach.

Book as early as you can! These get filled up. I know its a struggle to figure out days etc. but the weather can be really variable in the Katmai area and some days they cancel.
