Tour Overview

Your excursion begins with a short walk to board a custom-built, high-speed boat specially designed for wildlife viewing.

You'll cruise 25 miles to a remote inlet to witness eagles and seals fishing for salmon and look for bears as they emerge from the forest in May and June to forage on beach grass, berries and crabs as well as salmon in late July - September.

Although bear watching is your main objective, you'll spend about 30 minutes viewing wildlife that may be sighted during the journey to and from the bear viewing area. You'll keep a keen eye out for wildlife on the move. Whales, porpoise and sea lions follow schools of herring and salmon as they migrate to and from their spawning grounds.

Your excursion concludes downtown, with a short walk back to the pier.
