  • Wonderful bear viewing experience! Highly recommend to go for it.
  • Spectacular wildlife setting with bears and cubs along the shore, in the fields and feasting on salmon at the falls. One of the greatest places on earth!
  • This is a once in a lifetime experience. The bears literally catch salmon in their mouths and you can take a picture of them while they are doing it. WOW!!! It was like being in the scene of a Discovery Show. Add this to your bucket list item if you don't already have it on there 😊
  • Amazing. Get here if you can. National treasure. This place is the real deal.
  • It is a bit over priced and not accessible to the average american. Also, the facility is so close to the bear viewing areas that it almost feels like being at a zoo. The only difference is that the people are more caged-in than the bears. That said . . . it is absolutely amazing. It's like nothing else, so I can't give fewer stars, but I can't give 5 either.
