We often see black bears but seeing a brown bear is very rare. We always practice bear safety.
For the folks that want to add on a brown bear viewing trip on the front or back end of their time in Homer, we would love to help arrange for airplane Alaskan brown bear viewing. We partner with Bald Mountain Air Service, which is owned & operated by lifelong Alaskans. Many folks plan their trip to Homer knowing it is one of the main launching points for bear viewing adventures, only 70 miles away to the worlds most famous brown bear viewing. It is a trip of a lifetime and worth every penny. It’s an all day adventure. But.. who knows, you may see some bears out your front door!
“As an international airline pilot I have been extremely blessed to visit some of the most beautiful corners of the world. “Sea Bright” and its scenery ranks right at the top of all of them!”
