This is exactly what I wanted: bear viewing with a great guide in a secluded area, a small group, a smooth flight and good photographic opportunities. Craig and Sarah made it happen. It's worth the costs.

We spent a great day with Craig on this bear viewing trip. It was awesome, and definitely the highlight of our Alaska trip. We saw many bears, and were so close to them. Craig is a good pilot and informational guide. I know it's expensive, but it will bring you one of the best memorable moments of the life.

Most of the times reality doesn’t meet the expectation but, in a few occasions, they overcome it and that’s a sure recipe for a memorable moment. This was, by all counts, a perfect tour. It was a beautiful sunny day with good fellow tourists, a cool, lay back pilot and a guide not only as nice as you can imagine but also extremely knowledgeable about her bears. She even has a name for most of them. Seriously, if you want a custom and personal walk as close as you can get to many bears, look no further. Craig and Sarah are not only legitimate caring persons; they actually know what they’re doing and such rare combination is worth the trip.

Great trip . Saw all the bears I ever want to see. The pilot was our guide that day, and kept us safe. We even saw three sets of twin cubs.

I consider myself fortunate to have booked a bear viewing trip through Emerald Air. Pilot Craig Elger and Sarah Elger the guide provide an incredible experience. The flight over to Katmai from Homer reveals breathtaking vistas. The on-ground bear viewing was almost beyond description. You won't believe how close you get to the bears. Sarah's considerable knowledge about these magnificent animals just adds to the experience.
