Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Bears are the superstars of the Alaska wild and to observe them in their natural habitat is one of the most sought-after adventures. This ultimate Alaska bear encounter begins with a narrated motorcoach tour to your waiting boat. Once aboard, the vessel will cruise through breathtaking Tongass National Forest to Neets Bay. Have your camera at the ready-along the way you may see whales, eagles, sea lions and other creatures that call this area home. When you reach the dock, you'll disembark near the base of a stream, where an informative guide will brief you on the bears you may be observing. Then, enjoy the serenity of this unspoiled wilderness as you walk along a well-maintained forest trail to a covered viewing platform where you have the opportunity to watch these feared, yet most revered forest creatures feed on coho, chinook, and chum salmon.

Special Notes:

Bear sightings not guaranteed. Wear comfortable hiking footwear and dress warmly. Rain gear recommended. Water and snacks will be provided.
