Crescent Lake is absolutely beautiful! The bear viewing was more than we expected. The weather was wet, but we didn’t let that put a damper on our trip. When we had taken all the pictures we wanted of bears and tried our hand at fishing,...More

We tried to book a fly-in fishing charter to Cresent Lake with Talon Air Service - their customer service is absolutely terrible! They would promise to call back and never would. They would "need to check with the pilot" to see if we could be...More

This Fly In Bear Viewing to Crescent Lake was supposed to be the highlight of our Alaskan Vacation. Steer VERY CLEAR of this company. They take your $$ and treat you like total krap. Our excursion was from 12:30-6:30. The weather report for Soldonta was...More

Overall it was a great experience. The bears were plentiful and our guide Dan did an amazing job doing what we wanted on our tour. Our tour mostly consisted of bear watching, but added a little fishing for those who wanted to fish. Overall we...More

From the time you walk in the office door you know you are dealing with a top notch family run business. Alaska is a rainy place and it didn't change that for me, but don't doubt the skill of the pilot! Without a bump did...More

Did this tour twice. It was that good. You fly out in a seaplane to Lake Clark, where did both fishing for salmon and bear viewing. Catching fish here is "easy" and the bear viewing is a matter of luck, but the chances are good....More
