  • We saw at least 10 black bears and 1 cub that day. So fantastic! The boat ride out and back was great. All the guides were very knowledgeable and informative.  more »
  • We saw brown bears, black bears and cubs. What an experience. Be sure to go with Alaska Charters & Adventures out of Wrangell, AK for the best experience.  more »

  • We booked a trip to Anan Creek in July while our cruise stopped in Ketchikan. We used Southeast Aviation who were great. It was a 45 min flight to Anan and saw some beautiful scenery. Prior to our flight Jim from Southeast went over the bear facts and made sure that everyone in our party understood. They have never had any problems with bears and humans and they want to keep it that way. There is a lower Park Ranger that takes your permit and again explains the bear facts. We did not have a guide but there were 6 of us so we did not feel we were any danger. The trail to the lookout platform was a wooden boardwalk most of the way with a few stretches of dirt but very manageable. It took about 20 minutes to walk to the lookout with out seeing any bears. Once you are to the lookout there is another ranger. Along the way you will see numerous bald eagles. The walk itself is beautiful when you are not watching for bears. The platform was amazing. There were several black bears feeding in the creek. Some would stay awhile while others would come grab a salmon and take off. Be sure to sign up for the photo blind as soon as you get there. The photo blind is down at creek level and offers some amazing vantages of the bears up close. We had one grizzly walk right under us. The time slots are for a 30 minute period in the photo blind. We saw may 10-15 bears while we were there. Mostly black bears but two grizzlies. It was truly a once in a life time experience. We would do this again in a second.
  • Great Spot To Watch Bears Feeding.
