ALASKA BEAR VIEWING

Alaska Bear Viewing
Alaska bear viewing is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Alaska! If you have never witnessed bears in their natural habitat, it is something you will remember forever. Fish On with Gary can help you plan a day trip to witness a truly unique Alaska experience. Don’t forget to bring your camera.

Tourists on bear viewing trips are often (and rightly) anxious about running into an unfriendly Mr. Ursus (bear) in the woods. Don’t worry. It’s safe to view wildlife – as long as careful precautions are taken.

Alaska guided bear viewing trips are easy, fun and rewarding. Such journeys have an advantage: a lot of good, safe decisions have already been made. Guides are usually equipped and educated to make good choices on wildlife viewing trips. Comfort zones won’t be pushed, especially the animal’s. Specialized bear viewing trips and sites are often highly safe, as guides and park rangers are well-trained in bear safety.
Alaska Fish On! with Gary can help you find a safe way to view and enjoy these magnificent creatures.
