It’s all about seeing bears at Kodiak Brown Bear Center. As the area is a prime habitat for brown bears and offers some of the best opportunities for bear viewing in Alaska.
Starting at the beginning of August, the bear concentration is at its prime due to salmon runs entering the river systems throughout the region, and increases your chances of seeing the bigger male bears (also called boars). The peak season for KBBC bear viewing is between mid-August to October.
Your highly-trained and experienced wildlife guides will take you to various bear viewing locations via a short boat ride. Each location offers a unique glimpse into the lives of these majestic animals. With a maximum of 8 guests at any one viewing area, you’ll immerse yourself into the bear’s environment for observation, study, and to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of these legendary beasts.
In addition to wildlife viewing, kayaking and hiking are also available, as well as fishing for a variety of salmon and lake trout. Exact species will vary depending on the time of year, but spin gear and tackle are available for your fishing excursions. Guided fly fishing for steelhead trout is available in October.
