We took a fabulous trip on Sea Hawk Air to see the Kodiak bears. Jo, our guide, was extremely informative and made sure our small group moved around and stayed "small" so that we could get the best views while staying safe. If you come to Kodiak and want to see bears, make sure to fly with Sea Hawk Air.

Absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide jo was a fountain of knowledge on the Bears at Frazer lake and was great company. Seahawk were great to deal with throughout and the whole trip including the flight was marvellous - spotted some whales in way out and watched the Bears at the lake at a safe but close range. Feel privileged to... More

Friends of ours travelled to Alaska last year and recommended a stop in Kodiak and a trip with Sea Hawk Air - we are so glad they did! This truly was an experience of a life time! The trip started with an amazing flight on a float plane over Kodiak and across the sea to Hallo Bay, taking in views... More

Roland flew us to and from a vessel we stayed on for a week in the Katmai area. He was so professional, knowledgeable and friendly (not to mention great pilot). He even circled some whales for us on the flight in so we could get a better look. Flying with Roland was the perfect way to begin and end our... More

Visiting Kodiak from Australia we had one aim - to have a complete bear experience. Sea Hawk air provided this with professionalism, friendliness, care and expertise. The staff were friendly and efficient, but it was Jo and Rolan who made the day one to remember! Roland's piloting skills were second to none when delivering us to Hallo Bay in Katmai... More

The trip was fantastic from beginning to end. We meet Jo and Roland, owner's of Sea Hawk Air at their sea plane base where we were fitted for hip boots and a brief overview of bear viewing and Jo did explain that as we were a little early in the season she would not guarantee any bear sightings but lucky...

We were first-timers. . . in Alaska, and in a small plane.... and the people of Sea Hawk Air made this once-in-a-lifetime experience even more memorable. My husband and I (who are in our 60s and not the most outdoorsy of folks) were on a cruise that stopped at a few Alaska ports (Dutch Harbor, Kodiak, Homer). We had planned... More

Roland has been flying for decades on Kodiak and we wouldn't fly with any other pilot! Great company, great staff - go with Sea Hawk and you won't be disappointed.
