No worries as our tour was scheduled for noon and the drive is beautiful. Staff were friendly, on time and eager to please. Alan is a great pilot and gave us an incredible tour of... More

The flights to and from Wolverine Creek where bear come out of the woods to eat Salmon stranded on the rocks is a great experience, especially the low level flight over a glacier on the way home. We saw a Grizzly sow with three cubs, a juvenile black bear, and a juvenile Grizzly, which hung around all day entertaining the... More

This was the best flightseeing trip we have done. Our group of 6 flew over on the Garrett powered Otter to the Wolverine Creek location where there was a pontoon boat, with sides and a heater if we needed it. Allen was our pilot and did a great job and Ryan was our guide. Saw a Sow with her three... More

We booked with Talon Air after our trip to Bear Mountain Lodge was cancelled due to high winds. They worked us in the next day on a day trip from 2:30 to 8:30. We flew over to Crescent Lake in Lake Clark NP. The flight alone was well worth the money. Crescent Lake is a beautiful spot. Our guide Dan... More

We had an amazing time bear watching on Crescent Lake. The flight was spectacular and our 5 hours on the water with our guide Dan were breathtaking. We saw several bears, caught & cooked up fresh fish on the beach, and were awed by our surroundings. We lucked out with some amazing weather (sunny, low 60's, no wind), and given... More

My husband went on Talon's fishing/bear watching combo trip about 12 years ago and it was great. They were the only boat out there, caught their limit and had amazing bear viewing. We just went together in August and it was pure combat fishing and combat bear viewing. Boat lined up after boat. If you didn't time your photograph just... More

My husband and daughter did a tour with Talon 8 years ago and raved about it. They were just as awesome last week. Went on a salmon fishing, bear watching trip with a fly-over a glacier as well. Our guide Matt rocked! Caught our limit of silver salmon and got to see sibling bears sparring in the water. Very helpful... More

After a very smooth flight to Wolverine creek the fishing and bear viewing was fantastic. Our personal guide was extremely helpful. The flight back to Soldotna took us over a couple of glaciers for and up close look. Would recommend this to to anyone.
