Bear Viewing at Redoubt Bay Lodge

This post-cruise extension offers an opportunity to view bears in the Redoubt Bay area, which boasts one of the densest bear populations in the state. As the bears wander down to the lake to fish for salmon, you’ll have the opportunity to see them up close. You’ll also enjoy incredible sightseeing during floatplane rides to and from the lodge, and along the dramatic Seward Highway.
