Located in the Northeast corner of Admiralty Island, the renowned site, often renamed “Fortress of the bears” is an area home to an estimated 1,500 brown bears that roam freely fishing in the creek or foraging along the shoreline.
Wildlife activity abounds on this rugged island in the Inside Passage. Begin your journey walking along a rocky beach that takes you to an open meadow where you can observe bears fishing in the creek or foraging along the shoreline.
There is also the possibility of a one-mile hike through towering, 500-year old spruce forest to an observation tower, where you may see spawning salmon and the mighty bears browsing, foraging and fishing in their natural setting.
An unforgettable experience, there is nothing like seeing a bear of that stature standing meters in front of you, it’s simply spectacular.
Visitors are invited to embark on a premiere trip, designed by guides with decades of experience at Pack Creek. They’ll read the bear behavior, tides and weather to give you the best opportunities for outstanding wildlife viewing.
Experience something that is rarely seen by many, as you watch these magnificent creatures up close and wander the wilderness trails stamped out by bears.
