ABOUT US

Emerald Air Service was founded by Ken and Chris Day. What began as “Day Trips” in 1991 officially became Emerald Air in 2000. Operating out of a de Havilland Otter float plane, we are the oldest guided bear viewing company based in Homer, Alaska and have had the pleasure of sharing respect, understanding, and love for Alaska’s Coastal Brown Bears with many hundreds of guests over the years.

Our main goal is to educate guests about Katmai’s majestic residents, the Coastal Brown Bear, and the country in which they live. Surrounded by fear and misconception, the great predators of the world are being driven to extinction. Armed with knowledge and awareness, they can be saved. Knowledgeable respect—not fear—is what we hope you take away with you at the end of a fun-filled day.

 

"The sight of the grizzly bear stirred me like nothing else the country could contain. What mattered was not so much the bear himself as what the bear implied. He was the predominant thing in that country and for him to be in it at all meant that there had to be more of the same kind of country.... He implied a world. He was an affirmation to the rest of the earth that his kind of place was extant."
