Unforgettable Bear Viewing Day Trip from Homer to Lake Clark!
An Unforgettable Alaskan Wilderness Experience!
The day begins at our hangar at the Homer Airport, where you’ll get fitted for hip waders, and receive a safety briefing from Martin. Then take to the skies on a fantastic 35-min., to 90-min. flight, depending on what beach you visit.
You will soar over inlets, mountains, volcanoes, and glaciers. On a clear day, you can see up to 9 volcanoes along the route. This is our most popular Alaska grizzly and brown bears viewing tour.
We land on remote beaches of Katmai or Lake Clark National Park and hike to vantage points to observe the grizzly bears in their natural habitat. Watch them play, clam, mate, eat sedges, and later in the summer fish for salmon in their natural habitat — a truly majestic experience!
After three hours or more with the brown bears, board the plane for the return flight to Homer, again enjoying a 45-min. or 90-min. scenic flight. The entire trip takes either 4.5 or 7 hours, depending on the location. At every bear viewing location, there will be at least three hours on the ground. One parent per child under 8 years old. Please, no candy or soda for kids before/during flight.

If you cancel any time before 30 days prior to your trip you will receive a full refund less a 10% administrative fee, this refund excludes any booking fees. After that time any payment is non-refundable. Cancellation by Scenic Bear Viewing due to weather or safety issues will be refunded 100% of the price paid. In the event, we cancel due to weather or safety issues you have the option of a refund or to reschedule on a space-available basis. We strongly recommend travel insurance for unforeseen circumstances that may cause last-minute cancellations. It’s a good idea to plan at least 3-4 days in Homer for possible weather delays. The worst thing to do is to schedule bear viewing for your last day in Alaska then try to drive 4.5 hours to catch a flight in Anchorage.
