Kodiak Brown Bear Adventure
A visit to Kodiak Island will bring you face-to-face with the great Kodiak Bear, a true sight to behold. Led by expert guides, each day will bring new bear-watching adventures as you depart by boat to unique viewing locations throughout Karluk Lake & the Thumb and O’Malley Rivers. Boasting all five species of salmon, this region offers ample bear viewing, and the magnificent (and extra-large!) Kodiak Bear is especially impressive. Keep your camera close at hand, you’ll want proof of these formidable creatures long after your trip ends!
