  • When are the salmon running?
    Of course the Salmon runs will vary from year to year and differ slightly between rivers along the coast and it is not possible to predict them with absolute accuracy. In general we start to see a few salmon running in late July and the majority of the run happening throughout August.
  • When is the peak time to view bears?
    The bear viewing opportunities vary throughout the season and also from year to year. We see the greatest number of bears in mid to late June through mid July.

    Driving is not possible and a boat ride would take about 2 days. Like most of Alaska, it is accessible by air only.

    Absolutely, it's a long day! We recommend bringing a picnic, snacks and water along with you. Please avoid any smelly meat/fish products or messy lunches.
  • What is the weather like?
    The weather on the coast is very unpredictable. Temperatures can range between 45 and 70 degrees, even lower in September and higher in July. Please note the weather can be very different from the weather prevalent in Homer. We recommend that you show up prepared for most any weather. See the checklist of items to bring link at the top of this page.
  • How far and how difficult is the walk?
    We walk up to 3 miles on a typical tour. The walking is not considered difficult but we travel over rough areas when crossing the dunes close to the beach and streams. The terrain is sloping and unlevel, soft and sandy but there is almost no elevation gain on our tours.
  • When are the tours available?
    We live in Homer and are open year round, although the high activity is seasonal between mid May and mid September. Winter flying is incredibly gorgeous. We generally operate our bear viewing tours between May 20 and September 15.
