This was a great flight across Cook's Inlet where we landed on a beach and saw bears and then flew over glaciers and gorgeous mountains and valleys I would recommend taking this flight.

We had a great time during this trip. There were some other planes in the area before we got there scouting for bears, but Tim took us right to a momma bear and her cubs, and the others followed. That was a thrill. We also...More

There were bears everywhere on the beach and in the meadow - many with cubs. Very few people were there so there were only a handful of people per mile watching the bears. At first I was disappointed because I expected to watch the bears...More
