Spend a day in remote Alaska with the legendary brown bear. Fly in our de Havilland Otter float plane, the "workhorse of the North," across the Cook Inlet to one of the most densely populated Coastal Brown Bear habitats in the world: Katmai National Park and Preserve.

More than a photography trip, we always strive to be an educational experience that dispels the sensationalized myths that surround bears. You will take with you a sense of having been in "bear country" and a confidence born from knowledge and personal experience.
