WELCOME to Alaska!
Your adventure in the Last Frontier begins right here with Talon Air Service, a provider of fly out Alaska bear viewing and fishing experiences to remote locations starting from the heart of the world famous Kenai Peninsula in Soldotna.
Experience is key to success!
We are among the longest continuous operating air charters on the Kenai (est.1991) offering a wide variety of opportunities to view Alaska's bears, hook up with our world famous wild salmon, and see some of Alaska's most incredible scenery ranging from active but sleeping 10,000 foot volcanos to the world's most spectacular ice fields, glaciers, lakes, and wildlife. And it starts with a bird's eye view unlike no other.
Save time and enjoy more!
We love and live in Alaska because of its special beauty that few other places in the world can compare. Our close proximity to wilderness bear viewing activities and fly out salmon fishing opportunities puts you just minutes away in our ten passenger turbo-prop float planes. This equates to less travel time and more bear viewing and fishing time than operations providing similar experiences from more remote starting points. We have the best Alaska can offer - from take off to landing.
Alaska's most popular recreational playground is our home!
Our float plane base is located just a few minutes from Soldotna's city center where you can find all the amenities and necessities provided by a wide variety of businesses beginning with the nation's "big box" stores and grocery chains to local community favorites providing the best prices for fishing gear, homestyle dining and a wide variety of lodging to choose from.
What's your priority?
Most visitors to our state have three priorities: viewing Alaska's bears, bringing home some wild caught Alaska salmon, and witnessing the extraordinary beauty Alaska has to offer. Our bear watching tours and fishing package trips in our bush planes provide the ideal opportunity to check off those goals on your own bucket list. And the scenery on those trips is free.
Our backyard is your gateway to new experiences!
We provide frequent daily departures for bear watching as well as excursions to fish for one or several species of fish depending on your selected trip. All bear watching and fishing adventures outfit you with an Alaskan guide, boat, and all the necessary gear to make your experience something to share with friends and family back home. All within the confines of a single day schedule allowing you to engage in other activities our community has to offer before the sun goes down.
Sightseeing by air is Flightseeing!
For those who may be interested in extended tours of Alaska by air we offer packages that can show you how really wonderful our state is. We can cover a lot of territory and diversity in a short amount of time. The aleut native Americans referred to Alaska by the name Alyeska meaning The Great Land. Come join us and see why Alaska truly owns up to that reputation to this very day.
