Trygg Air offers day trips for walrus viewing from Anchorage as well as King Salmon, in Southwest Alaska. You can fly there commercially from Anchorage, where you’ll be met by owner Chris Klosterman. You’ll board his plane for a 90-minute scenic flight along the west side of the Alaska Peninsula to Cape Seniavin to view these 4,000 pound animals that haul out on the beach.
This rocky, mountainous and remote island is Alaska’s best place for observing and photographing Pacific walruses as they rest on the rocky shorelines in the hundreds or even thousands during summer. Visiting is only for the adventuresome as it involves travel in small planes and boats, and overnight stays on the island involve camping in a remote setting; but for those willing, it is an unparalleled wildlife and wilderness experience.
