Expedition Black Bear Neets Bay

From :
$ 329

Your six-pack licensed captain will guide you on a saltwater safari through the Tongass Narrows, Clover Passage, and temperate rainforest to Neets Bay, navigating the vessel on a path of scenic sanctuaries, stunning bays, and inlets, past a majestic lighthouse, seeking marine and coastal wildlife viewing opportunities along the way.

Black Bear Watching in Neets Bay

Neets Bay is located 40 miles north of Ketchikan and approximately 90-110 minutes (one way) by boat.

Quite often you will be able to observe the captivating behavior of whales breaching and tail-slapping, revere bear trails and salmon streams, and marvel at bald eagles feasting on salmon leftovers from the bears foraging.

At Neets Bay, black bear line the shore, catching as many protein-rich salmon as they can. Watching them fish and interact with each other in a natural setting is an amazing experience. Keep an eye out, as you may also spot Sitka black-tailed deer, mink, marten, and seals which all populate the area. All viewing is onboard from the comfort of our Coastal Cruiser.

While wildlife is abundant, sightings are not guaranteed.
