Weight Limitations

For each passenger, we reserve a max. weight of 300 lbs. (136 kg) fully dressed due to aircraft seat safety ratings. We cannot take you or anyone in your group who is over 300 lbs. (136 kg) and you will lose your seat and your full fare if you do not meet this specific requirement.


Luggage Limitations

We reserve the right to limit the amount of carry on baggage up to 12 lbs. per person for our tours; small backpack and camera equipment are acceptable. We must have each passenger’s weight before departure. Scales are available at the Homer Spit Office and loading dock.


Cancellation Policy

Cancellation made more than 30 days before check-in receives a full refund less $75 cancellation fee per person. The deposit is not refunded if cancellations are made between 30 days and 1 day before check-in. Cancellation made 24 hours or less before check-in, the full fare will be charged. NO REFUND! You may want to consider your own trip insurance. Ask your travel agent or check out online insurance.


If we cancel, passenger has option to full refund or re-booking on a space available basis.


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.
