Southeast Alaska Bear Viewing Tours from Ketchikan

Anan Creek Bear Viewing

Anan Creek Bear Observatory is the best way to see bears in their natural habitat. This tour includes a 40 minute flight each way, and then a 1/2 mile walk up a trail to the Observatory deck. There, you spend 1.5 hours watching both black & brown bear fishing for the salmon making their way upstream. Anan Creek is staffed by the US Forest Service and they limit the number of people that come into Anan each year, so book in advance for this tour.
