A Bear's Life

A Bear's Life

 

Above and Beyond Alaska will introduce guided day trips to the Pack Creek area of Admiralty Island after being awarded a 10-year permit by the US Forest Service. Admiralty Island boasts one of the highest concentrations of brown bears in the world. The adventure begins in Alaska's capital Juneau and combines flight-seeing, sea kayaking and bear viewing in a highly protected area where visitation is limited. The full-day tour begins with a 25-minute scenic floatplane flight to Windfall Island. From there, guided groups of 2-10 people sea kayak to either Windfall Harbor or Pack Creek Brown Bear Sanctuary, offering the choice between two different viewing experiences. The tour is available May 15 through September 15, and peak season for bear viewing is July through August. www.beyondak.com
