National Parks Bear Viewing

"Grand Slam"

Trip Details:

Do you have a passion for Alaska Brown Bears and the incredible scenery found in our National Parks?  Destination Alaska has created a unique 7 day 6 night package that will quench your thirst and fill your camera cards to their last byte.  Join us on the adventure of a lifetime as we fly and sail deep into Lake Clark and Katmai National Parks to watch Brown Bears feeding, playing, breeding, and occassionally fighting in their natural habitat.  Through years of planning and investing in the right equipment, we have gained the ability to offer one of the most unique multi-day bear viewing trips in the industry.  Our base package includes 3 nights lodging in one of our genuine Alaskan log chalets and 3 days of bear viewing by floatplane and wheeled bush plane from our Homer locations.  Our rugged de Havilland Turbo Beavers are supported by 35" Bushwheel Tundra Tires allowing us to land on soft sandy beaches in the heart of bear country.  Our mighty de Havilland Otter on floats is also available to take you and your friends to several freshwater lakes where bears are feeding along the shoreline on spawning salmon.  On day 4, fasten your seabelts!  We'll fly south to the incredible Katmai National Park coastline, west of Kodiak Island, where the 90' M/V Peregrine and our crew will be waiting to take you on a three day bear viewing extraviganza!  After a good nights sleep, wake up and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee on the front deck of this overnight adventure vessel. Each morning, we'll serve a hearty breakfast prepared by our crew, then you'll climb aboard our skiff with your bear guide and head to shore for several hours of front row viewing at a local brown bear theatre!  At the end of each day, enjoy a homecooked meal and relax in the onboard hot tub.  Yes.... that is correct.... we have a hot tub on the front deck waiting for you to relax and enjoy!  On the final day, we'll fly in and pick you up for a scenic ride back to Homer.  Looking for a VIP upgrade?  We offer flights from Anchorage to Homer and SUV rental cars as addtional options to streamline your vacation planning.  Here are some of the locations that we have selected to get you up close and personal with Ursus Arctos:

Chinitna Bay - Silver Salmon Creek -Tuxedni Bay - Crescent Lake - Hallo Bay - Brooks Falls - Crosswind Lake - Morraine Creek - Geographic Harbor - Kukak Bay and more!

What Sets us Apart?

Our Planes!

Aviation and Alaska share an incredible past, present, and future of adventure, exploration, and beauty.  So, when it came time to create a company with the ultimate touring packages for our guests, we knew that airplanes would be a big part of our success.  Seeing and accessing Alaska by air is unmatched by any other experience.  Having a birds-eye view of glaciers, volcanoes, wildlife, beaches, and rocky shorelines with cascading waterfalls creates photographs and memories that last a lifetime.  Airplanes are able to transport us everyday into untouched wilderness in the heart of Alaska’s wilderness and national parks. Our research team, pilots, and mechanics spent countless hours looking at various aircraft types used in Alaska to access these remote areas.  By placing the bulk of our attention on safety, performance, comfort, and reliability, we found that de Havilland Turboprop and Cessna aircraft were the best in the business.  Destination Alaska made a huge investment in three de Havilland turbine powered aircraft and they have not disappointed.  Incredible horsepower, smooth quiet climb performance, low maintenance, and fast cruise speeds are just a few of the pleasant surprises we have come to enjoy.  "Turbo Bear Viewing" offers our guests more time with the bears and has become a signature offering for Destination Alaska.  Next in line is our low time Cessna 206.  This aircraft lives up to its reputation of being the "pick up truck of the north".  The five seat 206 with its wide doors and rugged airframe is one of the most utlized aircraft in all of Alaska.  Whether on floats or big bush tires, this plane gets the job done day in and day out.  Our aircraft selection, and attention to your comfort and safety separate us from the crowd.  Come see the difference for yourself!
