My husband and I are planning our second trip to Alaska next summer. About 16 days in Late August and early September. It'll be our first vacation after the babies. We're interested in kayaking and hiking. We're flying into Anchorage and going to Kodiak for 6 nights. Three days will be spent bear viewing with Kodiak Treks. We're also kayaking with Orcas Unlimited. After we leave Kodiak, we're flying back to Anchorage, renting a car and then driving to Homer for three to four days. Kayaking with Seaside Adventure and bear viewing with Bald Mountain Air Service in Katmai NP. I spoke with them. It won't be Brooks Falls, but they said late August is really beautiful. My husband and I are serious amateur wildlife photographers. I don't think we'll be bored, but some people have suggested Bald Mountain would be redundant after seeing bears on Kodiak. Any thoughts?
