Take part in this unique wildlife experience available only to a small number of visitors. Taking off by floatplane, you'll enjoy a narrative from your bush pilot as you fly to a remote location in the Tongass National Forest. Once landed, you'll take a short drive followed by a quarter mile guided hike to a viewing platform overlooking a beautiful stream. In addition to black bears, Sitka black-tailed deer, minks, and martens frequent the area. From the viewing platform, you look down on fast moving rapids where black bears gather to feed on runs of pink, coho and chum salmon as they head upstream to spawn. You may also see bald eagles perched in the surrounding trees waiting for fish scraps.
