Grizzly Bears In Alaska Photo Tour

Filed in Places Of Interest, Workshops on Sep.12, 2011

Katmai National Park is undoubtedly one of the best locations in Alaska for Grizzly Bear viewing. This is the home to the renowned Kodiak bear or Kodiak Grizzlies, some of the largest bears in existence having been known to be 10ft in height when standing.In summer North America’s largest land predators gather along streams to feast on salmon runs, building weight from this wealth of protein and fat, preparing for the long winter ahead. The Grizzlies of Alaska are the principal reasons for visiting this corner of the world, with a population of approximately 32 – 43,000, Grizzly Bears are found in most corners of Alaska.

Come and join me on this amazing adventure to the stunning wildness of Alaska and witness this amazing animal in this stunningl habitat. We will be working with the best guys on the ground in Alaska ensuring we get to the best locations safely, giving us as a group the best opportunities to photograph this amazing bear and surrounding wildlife. Unlike bear viewing at other spots in Alaska, on this trip we watch grizzlies from our small boat and from the ground. Of course grizzlies are unpredictable and can never be guaranteed, but the ship operator has been running scientists and a select few photographers to this region for over 10 years and has never missed seeing them.

This fantastic boat, simple in design will provide the ideal accommodation from where to explore the wilderness of Katmai National Park and the awesome Kodiak Grizzlies. A fantastic converted tug boat simple in design but providing the ideal accommodation from where to explore this amazing wilderness.The Grizzly Cruiser is only for small groups and is ideal for photographers looking for an intimate wildlife experience where they can get those up close and personal shots of the huge Kodiak Grizzly Bears, following the bears from bay to bay.

As well as travelling the shores watching for bears, we also track them on foot here. Not from viewing platforms, or from vehicles, but on their territory with the protection of your skilled and knowledge guides on the ground. This is a truly wild encounter and access to the land is via a skiff (fat bottomed boat). These are wild animals and we can never fully understand their behaviours and motivations, its an amzing trip with stunning images at every turn.

This 7 day photo trip will be backed by ABTOT/ATOL bonded tour operator World Bear safaris, giving you complete piece of mind. For bookings and further information, please click on this link
