Anchorage to Kodiak
Transfer on your own to the Anchorage airport for a morning flight to Kodiak Island (flight could be very early, pending final flight schedule). Upon arrival in Kodiak, pick up your rental car at the airport and drive to your hotel. Your bear viewing flight safari begins as you depart by sea plane and soar over the island landscape enjoying incredible views of Kodiak Island’s rugged landscape. The flight safari is approximately 1 to 1.5 hours of flying, with a total of approx. 4 hours total. If the bear sightings are better on the Alaska Peninsula/Katmai Coast, the pilot will cross the Shelikof Straight and fly along the Katmai shoreline. Bear viewing may take place on Kodiak Island itself when the salmon is running which typically is July.
Upon landing you will hike 1 or 2 miles to the best viewing location for the day*. Spend about 90 minutes on the ground watching the bears in their natural habitat. After returning to Kodiak later today transfer to your hotel. Overnight in Kodiak.
* Please note that guests will need to walk/hike from the plane for up to 2 miles over potentially uneven terrain to get to the bear viewing spot.
