Bear Viewing in Katmai National Park

Experience the opportunity of a lifetime with Smokey Bay Air as you witness the Alaska Coastal Brown Bear in its natural environment. You’ll fly over some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, including inactive volcanoes, glaciers and snow-capped mountains that boast the largest concentration of brown bears on earth.

Your wildlife viewing day trip to the Katmai National Park will begin with a brief flight from Homer Airport. Then you'll spend the day on the beach in prime bear habitat, with a backdrop of majestic mountains and coastal landscapes.

With a guide at your side, you will perhaps catch a view of the Great Bald Eagle and likely see active bears fishing, digging for clams, grubbing for roots and grasses, socializing and raising their young.

You will then return the same day so you can enjoy the many other aspects of Homer that make it a prime destination for visitors.
