THE BEAR HUNT OPTION
- Product code: RAAAR!
and your guide saw 1-4 bears a day in May alone. Her boss even called her "Sherry Beary". Last summer it was a dead zone and only 4 bears were spotted in May. This is just proof that the seasons are unpredictable and that really the sightings are up to the bears. Most tour guides don't want to talk about bears unless they see them because they don't want people to be disappointed. YOUR guide however knows that everyone
(including herself) wants to see bears or any other wildlife, so why downplay the search? It's why we choose to live here; we want to enjoy nature.
In case you were wondering bears don't s#@* in the woods, they do it on the road which gives us a great opportunity to see one of these amazing beings in action. Your guide will point out piles of bear poop on the road so we will know that they are close and we can be extra alert for the pooping culprit. Traveling with a local increases your odds of spotting wildlife as she will know the spots where wildlife has been spotted in the past. She also knows the area like the back of her hand which means she won't be tricked by the culvert that looks like a bear or the stump that looks like a cub. That happened years ago, so she can focus on real possible sightings like a pro. Your guide will share personal bear encounters that only years of living and hiking in Alaska could provide. The farther you travel into the interior the greater the opportunity for wildlife which means the longer the tour, the better your chance so go ahead a book a 6 hour tour. Binoculars and a spotting scope will be available on this tour for everyone to share.
Group rate of $150 per hour for up to 6 people. 4 hour minimum.
NO BEARS WILL BE ACTUALLY HUNTED UNLESS YOU COUNT SHOOTING THEM WITH A
DIGITAL CAMERA. NO FEEDING, APPROACHING OR DISTURBING BEARS WILL BE TOLERATED. NO GUARANTEES CAN BE MADE FOR WILDLIFE SIGHTING. IF YOU WANT A GUARANTEED WILDLIFE SIGHTING BOOK THE JUNEAU WHALE WATCHING TOUR HERE OR HEAD TO THE RED ONION SALOON AFTER THE TOUR-- IT GET'S PRETTY WILD IN THERE...
