Bear watching trip: we saw 15 to 18 bears, including seven cubs. Wow! What an experience to be on the ground with the bears. To watch them catch salmon, listen to them growl, see cubs play and take.... more »
I had lived on Kodiak, but it was the first trip back for my family. We flew with Kyle, one of the owners. He called to say it was likely to rain on the day we had scheduled, but there was an earlier opening. He suggested what we should bring, and that rain gear and mud boots were available to borrow, which we did. The plane was clean and well maintained. The flight to the FrazerLake bear watching site was spectacular. We saw bear, mountain goats and deer en route. We were the only group there. A sow and cubs kept us company. Kyle was quite knowledgeable about bears, and Kodiak in general. Definitely the highlight of the trip..
Used them in 2008 for transport on a deer hunt and they were excellent; safe, courteous and timely. Recently tried to book for transportation for a bear hunt. They won't fly hunters into Fraser Lake to hunt the DB209 tag but they will take them to other locations in the unit. I respect their personal morales but this shows a major lack of understanding of the biology and habits of the bears that are their "bread and butter".
