Ketchikan, Bear Country & Wildlife Expedition
Join this unique bear viewing opportunity, which is accessible by road. You’ll begin with a narrated 8-mile coastal drive to the forested area of Herring Cove located within the Alaska Rain Forest Sanctuary. Meet your guide and set out on a walking expedition to locate some of the wild black bears that call this forest home. You will pass through tall stands of hemlock, spruce and cedar as you explore the sanctuary. An elevated boardwalk will lead you to viewing platforms overlooking Eagle Creek, where bears often come to fish for salmon in the stream. The stream is home to 4 different species of Pacific Salmon. Typically, large numbers of black bears gather here to feed on these huge runs of salmon that are returning to spawn. Bald eagles perch in the trees, waiting patiently for scraps left by the bears. Mink, marten, and deer also frequent the area while seals can usually be seen near the mouth of the stream feeding on the bountiful fish runs. You will have ample time to observe the wildlife activity. At the conclusion of the mile-long trail walk you will go through the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill established by legendary pioneer Ben Fleenor. See birds of prey up close at Alaska Raptor Center Exhibit and view the Tsimshian totem pole park, home to an impressive 40-foot totem and many other poles, all created by one master carver. Transportation to and from the sanctuary will be by motor coach.

Juneau, Discover Alaska Whales
Have you ever envisioned living the life of a Research Scientist? Or looking for the thrill of encountering one of the earth’s largest creatures? Well, now’s your chance! Alaska’s waters hold one of the largest concentrations of humpback whales and along with your contribution to ongoing research during this exhilarating excursion you are guaranteed to see a whale! Not only is this a one-of-a-kind whale watching experience, but you’ll will have the opportunity to participate in various science activities aboard a custom designed vessel permitted to collect research data while on the open water. From the pier you’ll travel north to meet your vessel in Auke Bay. Meet your experienced captain and board your wildlife viewing vessel.  Have your camera handy as you cruise through the island-studded waters of Stephens Passage, a wonderland of snow-capped peaks and ice-blue glaciers. While you cruise, you’re sure to spot humpbacks, orcas, sea lions, harbor seals, and porpoises. Once a whale is spotted, the Captain will slow down for exceptional viewing and photo opportunities. Given the right behavior and weather conditions, you may hear the haunting, moaning call of the humpback. Luckily, the vessel is equipped with a hydrophone when the opportunity arises, to listen to the underwater sounds of whales while an onboard naturalist explains the habits and habitats of the creatures you may encounter. When conditions permit during your cruise, you’ll explore the foundation of the food chain by drawing plankton samples, take a look at live sea animals in a touch tank and even use a GPS camera to aid in identifying specific whales while recording their varied behaviors.

Please note: There is a variable sloped ramp leading to the safari vessel dock which changes with the tide. Whale sightings are frequent. All guests must sign a waiver attesting to their physical and medical conditions to participate. Dress warmly in layers, as the tour operates in all weather conditions. Bottled water and a snack pack are included. Bring a camera with plenty of film or memory and batteries.  Participants are eligible to enter to win cash prizes in the tour operator's Capture Juneau Photo Contest.
