You've got questions, we've got answers
Q:What is the best time of year for bear viewing?
Much of the local wildlife including the eagles and bears centers around the salmon run. Typically, July and August are the best times for bear viewing in this area, but they can be spotted throughout the season. Though we can't predict Mother Nature's schedule, it's always a pleasure to see bears when they are out!
Q:What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port? Refund?
It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases, we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will of course refund the full cost of the tour.
Q:When should we reserve this tour? Can we book it when we arrive to Ketchikan?
This tour, like many others, does operate with limited spacing so advanced reservations are recommended. Often times, last minute reservations or day-of arrivals cannot be accommodated, so we always say that it's best to book the tour as soon as you have an idea that this is the one for you.
