Bear Viewing

You simply cannot come to Alaska without the intention of seeing bears and Katmai is THE premier brown bear viewing area in the world. Brown bears gather where there is food and Katmai’s rivers receive the largest run of sockeye salmon which both bears and fisherman flock to every year.

Katmai National Park Brooks River is one spot where the bears naturally congregate to catch and feed on salmon trying to get over Brooks Falls as they return to their spawning grounds. Bear viewing here is at its premium with viewing platforms built along the falls and river to accommodate bear viewers, amateur and novice photographers alike all without affecting the bears behavior.

But don’t stop at Brooks Falls, in the Katmai area there are endless opportunities for bear viewing in more remote locations. Fly-out to watch bears clam digging on the tidal beaches, chewing on sea grasses, or mating in the spring. On our rafting trip you can watch a nine foot Brownie swim across the river in front of you or see bears fishing for salmon from the bank. In Alaska, bears frequent specific areas at different times, primarily related to food availability. To plan your visit to coincide with the best bear viewing times, Contact Us to customize your package.
