These folks have resumed bears from around the state. Great place to see them up close in a natural environment. One of the better tours we did while in Alaska.

Well worth the trouble and expense to get here. We took the boat that cruises the coast. We saw numerous grizzlies, not to mention orcas, humpbacks and eagles on the way. Unforgettable!
