Explore Kamchatka


Often times you see bears on the flight to the rivers.   One trip we counted 12 brown bears, running from below our helicopter and have counted over 75 brown bears during the float. The other world famous attraction is the Steller sea eagle. One of the rarest eagles in the world, it is also the heaviest, this is a birders dream experience, to have a stellar sea eagle take off from a branch overhead and fly directly over you.

Ouzel bear viewing/ Steller Sea Eagle trips will be guided by a professional photographer who will take you to the most photogenic landscapes, get you up close to the bears and eagles, so you can take that amazing photograph. How many people do you know have seen an Asian brown bear or steller sea eagle.

Our Russian guides are the hardest working guides in Kamchatka. They will put up and take down our movable camps. You will stay in four person tents with thick mats. You will have your own personal chef who cooks you three delicious meals a day. And you will have more beer and vodka than you can drink.

We limit 3 people per raft so plenty of room to photograph from. By trips end you won’t want to head home, but you will be excited to share your photographs and stories with friends and family.
