Our guide for this trip was Hanna. She was very knowledgeable and and reassuring.
WOW. Was good fortune on our side. When we arrived on the island and headed towards our viewing area there was already one large female bear there with two cubs. The mother bear was catching salmon in the nearby steam and then her and her cubs would feast on the fish. We were about 75 meters from these bears.
Within five minutes we spotted another large female bear and two cubs running through the grass heading almost directly towards us. As we remained still and quiet at our viewing place these new arrivals trotted along and came to within about 25-30 meters from us. As they crossed directly in front of us the two cubs stopped and each stood up for a few seconds and then in unison they moved off with their mother where she also started catching salmon. To have these magnificent animals fishing and lounging around so close to us was totally amazing. We watched these six bear for well over an hour or so. Later several other individual bears appeared coming down the stream towards us as they in turn were catching salmon.
Later we walked several kilometers inland to a viewing tower. Although no bears were visible from that location we did hear the loud sound of a bear growling in the woods as we started that walk. We eventually returned to our initial viewing area and there were still a mother and two cubs nearby. It was an unbelievable and unforgettable experience that will stay with us forever. The video footage of the bear and cubs running in towards us and then standing close by is amazing.
This was the highlight of our trip through Alaska, the Rocky Mountains and New York.
Yes it is expensive but well worth it. read less
Lookin’ for bears This was a rough July: zero inches rain means rivers not running, salmon not running, bears laying in wait (and out of site).

We went to an alternate location in search of said furry critters (half-day trip). Everything was great, including the hiking, bear scouting, scenery, and plane ride (saw a couple bears and a whale out the window). We did see a bear exiting the river. You can’t blame Dan for the bear shortage!!! Everything within his control he did most excellently, we were happy to travel with him, and would love the chance to go again!!! (On a rainy month). read less
