Custom Tours

We can offer custom expeditions to wilderness areas throughout Southeast Alaska. Groups of five are welcome to make custom arrangements for food options, flight seeing additions and tour length for these custom wilderness bear tours or yacht charters. For groups under five seeking a custom Alaskan yacht guide tour, wilderness bear tour, or private experience, please contact us for pricing.

Yacht Services

Have us meet your yacht or charter vessel for a guided excursion into bear country. Guides can accompany your family or group ashore using your vessel’s tender, or we can take you flight-seeing and bear-viewing.

Our guides can lead you for a half day or full day into bear country, either from your vessel or by sea plane to many destinations along the Inside Passage. Or, you can stay onboard overnight or longer, with our guides providing natural history interpretation and multiple trips ashore.

We Provide:
– round-trip float plane service from Juneau to your vessel, or to other destinations from your vessel, including flightseeing over the Juneau ice field or Tracy Arm/Sawyer glaciers;
– professional wilderness guide with years of experience in bear country, and equipped with a bear protection firearm and canister of bear spray, a first aid kit, and marine radio;
– day use permit from the U.S. Forest Service, for most areas on Admiralty and Chichagof islands.

Fly-in Guided Hikes into Bear Country: $2800, includes flying a guide to any yacht anchored within a 30 minute flight of Juneau (e.g. Pack Creek, Tenakee Inlet, Pavlof Harbor, Tracy Arm entrance); half or full day of guided bear viewing, kayaking, or other natural history activity; permits and insurance. Additional flight seeing or overnight guiding can be arranged. Supplies and fresh groceries can be flown in. Call 907-209-5432 for details and reservations.

Flight Seeing

If the weather allows, we recommend adding a spin over the ice field or through the fjords to make the most of your scenic flight. Additional flight seeing by the hour and subsequent half hour. Call for details.

Film and Research Services

We will supply an experienced guide to accompany your film or research crew. We provide knowledge and experience with some of the best bear viewing sites in southeast Alaska.  Our guides can greatly enhance the safety of your operation through training in bear-human interactions, bear attack prevention, and safety back-up of a fire arm and bear spray.

We can also help with facilitation of commercial film permits, other permissions and logistics needed so you’re free to focus on getting the shot. Our areas of operation include federal, state, & city lands in the greater Juneau/Glacier Bay National Park /Tongass National Forest area.   Call 907-209-5432 for details.
