It's more than just incredible bear viewing tours that we do--we also offer spectacular glacier and volcano flightsee tours. Check out the pics from one I just did a couple weeks ago. The Harding icefield was something else--but the shot of the volcano Iliamna was amazing! Thanks to one of our guests for providing these. (BTW--when you look at the Smokey Bay Air logo and look at the shot of Iliamna--see how it matches up!)

The bookings for our World-Class Bear Views are rolling in now for the 2018 season (20 May to 7 Sept) and it is a good idea to book early, as the popular dates go fast. 

I was going through some picture files and found this really excellent shot taken by our bear guide / naturalist, Daniel. I'm sure he's looking forward to showing you the bears!

Focus and concentration, and lightening fast reflexes--that's how you catch fish. I'm gonna have to try that.....

At Smokey Bay Air, we are having great bear activity! Here are a couple of vids from one of our happy guests. How about scheduling us for a bear view and see some of this action! We don't just take you to some viewing platform with a crowd of several others--we take you to be amongst the bears in their back yard! (on the second video, watch closely and you can spot a wolf running by..)

Another great day of bear viewing at Smokey Bay Air, this time at Kaguyak Bay at the Katmai NP. We were there for a bear view and saw plenty of activity--so the wolf was a bonus!

Well, June 2017 is almost done and has it ever been an incredible month for our viewing tours of the Alaskan coastal brown bears! Many, many satisfied guests and some great bear activity. Here is a nice vid of a running bear and a couple still shots, including some more spring cubs. Come join us on a bear view soon!

Check out this guy running. And, a good lesson on why to not try to out-run a bear..

Hello! One of our guests, from Switzerland, was kind enough to send us some pics of a wonderful bear view tour we were able to provide. This is what we really enjoy: Happy guests!

 When you come to Homer, before you do your bear view or flightsee tour, you will see lots of these mighty eagles. The Bald Eagle, one of the symbols of the United States and we are proud to have so many here.

 And while here, you will get to know the Homer Spit, formed by glacial moraine.

Happy Summer! (officially)

Smokey Bay Air's bear viewings just keep getting better.. Bears, and more bears and all sorts of activity going on. One of our guests was kind enough to send me a pic he took--and it is exceptional! Hopefully, they'll pose for you just like this...

Great weather is back, to go along with the plentiful bears at Chinitna Bay Lake Clark NP. And, like it is said, half the fun is getting there! Check out this pic of Mt Iliamna: That's Augustine in the background, Chinitna Bay in the mid ground and Iliamna in the foreground. Next, view a great vid of climbing out past Mt Iliamna and the steam vents. If you're in Anchorage, or anywhere in Alaska, come on down to beautiful Homer--you got to see this!

The bear viewing just keeps getting better and better. We saw over 20 bears on our last trip--and then quit counting.. One of our guests was kind enough to send a few pics, so check out the size of this fella! We're going into a nice stretch of sunny weather, so get on up to Homer and let us show you the bears! Or, a glacier flightsee or trip to Seldovia.
