Enjoy three unique wildlife experiences in Sitka! You’ll sail on the award-winning Sea Otter & Wildlife Quest, take a guided tour through the renowned Alaska Raptor Centre, and visit a sanctuary for orphaned Alaska Brown Bears. This adventure is both educational and fun for the entire family.


You’ll board a deluxe, waterjet-powered catamaran and set out to explore the marine wilderness, to observe sea otters, whales, Steller sea lions, porpoise, harbour seals, brown bears, blacktail deer, and a variety of marine birds. An onboard naturalist will explain this remarkable ecosystem as your skilled Captain maneuvers the vessel to provide you with the best-possible views. You’re guaranteed to observe sea otters, a whale or a bear. If not, you'll receive a $100 cash refund as you disembark the vessel.


A short ride takes you to the renowned Alaska Raptor Center, where injured birds of prey receive medical care. A wildlife guide will bring you through the Bald Eagle Flight Building, and introduce you to some of the raptors perched in outdoor habitats. You’ll then have some time to explore the river trail and enjoy the interactive exhibits.


Your adventure continues with a narrated drive along a coastal road to visit the Fortress of the Bear, a rescue facility at Silver Bay. Here, you can view and photograph brown bears up-close from a raised platform and learn about an Alaskan family’s dream to provide a life- saving alternative for bears. You’ll have some free time to explore beautiful Sitka on your own after the tour.


Need to Know:

Note: Dress warmly and bring a rainproof jacket to wear on the vessel observation deck and at outdoor wildlife-viewing facilities. Complimentary-use binoculars and souvenir route guides are provided.
