Bear viewing flight out of Anchorage

Could somebody, please, recommend a day long bear viewing experience that could be originated out of Anchorage? It would be in mid June. Is it essential to make a reservation ahead of time or is it possible to get on a flight on the day of departure (just one person).

Thank you!

We have went twice with Rusts and had great pilots both times. They will know where you need to go and you can always call a few days ahead of time and get updated reports, Day of departure is taking a risk but if they can't take you that day, they may be able to refer you to another that can. Always call one day in advance as they leave early. I might try that early in my trip if you got a good weather day and if you fail, try and make a reservation towards the end of your trip. How many in your party?

note- I do not know how they currently handle security requirements so they may need all travel names in advance of departure, not sure anymore

I don't think there are any all-day bear trips out of Anchorage in mid-June. But the half-day trip with Rust's mentioned by bluewaterfever should give you a bit more than 3 hours of actual bear-viewing, which should be adequate.
