Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
The Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area has four times more brown bears than in Yellowstone National Park! With favorable numbers like these, you will definitely see bears in action.
What You Can Expect
After morning pickup by van from your Juneau hotel, kick off your tour with a floatplane flight over Tongass National Forest and the Inside Passage. Land 25 minutes later on Windfall Island, where you’ll receive a safety briefing for your kayaking journey through Windfall Harbor. Paddle your way to the mouth of Pack Creek on Admiralty Island.
Secure your kayak and follow your guide’s lead to prime viewing locations to observe grizzly and brown bears in their natural habitat. Scamper up lookout towers to see bears playing in meadows, and head over to creeks and streams to see them swimming or catching salmon.
Enjoy plenty of time watching bears, about three hours, before you return by kayak back to the floatplane. Your tour ends with van transport back to your hotel in Juneau.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required. Visitors to the Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area must have a permit, which is limited in number and provided to tour operators only. As permits sell out quickly, make sure to book this tour well in advance.
Only one word: AMAZING! This was a great company to deal with. Corey was a fantastic guide and pretty good photographer! Would highly recommend this tour. Not only did we see bears, but we had a float plane trip and kayak included. Magical day.
This was an amazing day tour, the kayaking was fun, and getting to see the grizzlies was great. We were also lucky to get to see another 12+ grizzlies as we were flying back at the end of the night including babies. We had two fun and informational tour guides. This is a tour that I would highly recommend to others.
