Description

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

Your incredible half-day wildlife adventure begins when you meet your Alaska bush pilot for a breathtakingly scenic flight over southeast Alaska's glorious landscape. Once your plane has landed, you will immediately find yourself in brown bear territory, where access is limited by permit to ensure preservation of these glorious creatures. Here, your expert local guide will share in-depth knowledge of the area's fascinating natural history, wildlife and, of course, the life and habits of brown bears. You will enjoy an educational walk along pretty streams, breathtaking estuaries and coastal areas looking for wildlife and taking photographs. You'll head back to port on the return flight having experienced a truly special day out. Photographers and nature enthusiasts will marvel at this opportunity to discover the unexpected on this once-in-a-lifetime experience allowing a rare look into the world of Alaska's most grand and majestic animals.
