Admiralty Wildlife Kayak - Brown Bear Viewing at Pack Creek

An unforgettable wildlife kayaking experience into the "Fortress of the Bears" on Admiralty Island! This is truly one of the gemstones of Southeast Alaska!

This full-day adventure begins with a 25-minute scenic floatplane flight to Windfall Island. From there, you'll sea kayak about a mile to the edge of the Pack Creek Brown Bear Sanctuary located on Admiralty Island, home to the highest concentrations of brown bears in the world. This world-class wildlife sanctuary provides protected habitat for brown bears while affording visitors and opportunity to view and photograph wildlife close-up.

KayakNext, a short beach walk brings you to the mouth of Pack Creek, where we hope to see Alaskan brown bear fishing for salmon or feeding in the beach meadows. You may (depending on time and/or conditions) also take a short one-mile hike through the beautiful old-growth coastal rainforest to an observation tower on upper Pack Creek. The tower has room for eight people and is an excellent place to watch bears as they pass directly below you.

There are two primary bear-viewing areas along Pack Creek. The mosts accessible is a sandy spit of land right at the mouth of the creek and a short beach hike from where floatplanes land and boats tie up.

No experience is necessary however participants must be fit enough to kayak/hike a few miles through wilderness and must be dressed appropriately. Due to safety concerns, there is a 250 lb per person weight limit on this tour. Weights and clothing sizes must be provided at the time of booking.
