May - September
Pack Creek Bear Tours offers fully guided adventures to Admiralty Island or Chichagof Island, each home to more than 1,500 brown bears! After a beautiful 20- or 25-minute floatplane ride, you’ll land on a remote beach. Take a short walk to the bear-viewing area, where you can watch these magnificent creatures for hours in their natural environment.
Watch brown bears in their natural habitat as they swim, play, sleep, or eat in a 3/4 acre enclosure near Sitka. The Fortress of the Bear takes in abandoned or orphaned cubs and then works to find new homes for them, sending them to zoos around the country. You’ll view these creatures from raised platforms while a guide shares information about bear safety, nutrition, and biology.
