We loved our trip with Jesse. He is an excellent pilot and no knowledgeable and passionate about the area. We highly recommend this tour. It is a wonderful way to see the area and bears...which we did not disturb.

We were there to see the whales and if we saw some bears we were going to consider it a bonus. The cost is high for the helicopter, but everything in this remote location is. I struggled with the decision to spend the money, but...More

Several tours per day. $550 CAD/ person but needs minimum of 2-3 passengers to fly. Weather dependent so flights may be mover earlier or later or even cancelled.
