A Day Going to Hallo Bay!

Begin your adventure with an early visit to our Beluga Lake office, where our friendly reservations team awaits your arrival for an official check-in.

Once paperwork is completed and the flight manifest is finalized, board one of our shuttles for a quick transfer to the Homer airport, where your pilot and bear guide await. After a brief safety briefing, embark on an exhilarating journey aboard one of our Turbo Beavers or Cessna 206 wheeled planes for a breathtaking flight to Hallo Bay. Departing from Homer, the flight takes you southwest along the Kenai Mountains, to the end of the Kenai Peninsula, across the Barren Islands, over to Afognak Island near Kodiak, and finally, across the Shelikof Straits to descend into Hallo Bay.

Load up your camera cards and ensure fresh batteries for the next 3 hours, as you explore the beach, meadows, and streams, capturing incredible moments of Brown Bears engaged in wild activities in their natural environment. Witness bears of all sizes and shapes feasting early in the season, preparing for the upcoming winter hibernation. Their high-fat and protein diet includes clams, sedge grass, and salmon, and occasionally, the shores might be graced with a feast from a dead Humpback whale, lasting nearly the entire summer.

The backdrop for your photography is unparalleled, with snowcapped Mt. Douglas, part of the Ring of Fire, soaring into the skyline. Conclude your adventure with a return to Homer, carrying full camera cards and broad smiles. Immerse yourself in a day of bear watching in Hallo Bay, Alaska!
