Our Aircraft

We own and operate two 10-passenger DeHavilland Single Turbine Otters on floats. These aircraft are the standard for safe travel in the outback of Alaska’s bush country. All trips are weather-dependent with limits set by the FAA. If we are unable to go due to weather, each passenger has the option of a full refund or rebooking on a space-available basis.

We reserve the right to prohibit travelers from continuing on a journey if, in our opinion, these travelers’ actions pose a threat to the safety of themselves, others or the wildlife, or if these travelers’ actions or behaviors are seriously jeopardizing the enjoyment of the trip for others. There will be NO REFUND!

We require a minimum of four passengers in order to make the trip to Katmai. This is especially true in early June. Every year, our bear viewing season lasts from June 1 until mid-September.
