This once-in-a-lifetime wildlife expedition with wild black bears of Southeast Alaska is certain to charm everyone. Take off in a floatplane, with all the amenities to make your trip a memorable experience, including a digital CD audio system and individual passenger headsets, to Neets Bay, one of the finest bear viewing locations in Alaska. The flight to Neets Bay is over the largest national forest in the United States. Neets Bay is also home to one of Southeast Alaska's salmon hatchery operations.


Upon arrival a 1/4 mile guided walk along a stunning, well-maintained nature trail through the Alaska rainforest takes you to the viewing area, where black bears fish for their next meal. A naturalist guide will describe the habits of the bear and the lifecycle of their favorite meal - the salmon. The secure, covered viewing area allows for up-close observation in their natural habitat among the wilderness beauty of the Tongass National Forest. Other wildlife possibilities include eagles, Sitka black-tailed deer, mink, marten and seals.


Need to Know:

Note: There is a 1/4-mile walk over uneven and sometimes difficult terrain, to and from Neets Bay, with a few steps and narrow passageways. This tour is not recommended for guests with physical limitations. Flight time is approximately 45 minutes. Wear comfortable hiking footwear and warm, waterproof clothing. Bear watching tours operate during prime bear viewing months, usually late July through mid-September. Wildlife sightings are frequent, however they cannot be guaranteed.
