There’s a bear in there…

One lasting memory of our most recent trip to Alaska was a day excursion from Homer with Bald Mountain Air to Geographic Harbour, across from Kodiak Island, so we could spend time with the Katmai bears.

The day commenced with a 40 minute float plane trip over some stunning Alaskan wilderness before we descended into a pristine harbour and took a short boat ride to the banks of a beautiful little salmon stream.
It wasn’t long before we had the company of a bear and her two cubs chasing & sometimes successfully catching their share – it gives sushi a whole new meaning!

Throughout the day we had several more visitors to our stream, and were often within meters of the largest bears I have ever seen, eyeballing us as they tore into the fresh fish. We knew our place, paid due respect and were left in peace.
This was truly an amazing experience in one of the world’s most untouched habitats and the memories will remain with me forever.
