The Traitor's Cove Bear Viewing tour begins with convenient pickup just a short walk from your cruise ship and subsequent transportation for the float plane base for a short safety briefing. From here, your Ketchikan bear watching tour kicks off with a stunning 30-minute flight out of Ketchikan to forest service land for your bear viewing experience. After a beautiful remote water landing, you'll hop in a van for a 1-mile ride before a short nature walk to the viewing platform. Along this entire way, your naturalist guides will educate you on the flora & fauna of the area & prepare you for your bear viewing experience.
During your time at the bear viewing platform, you’ll keep an eye out for black bears as they fish for salmon. This Ketchikan bear watching tour runs from late July through September to take advantage of the Alaska salmon run that brings so many bears to this stream. Your guides will be with you the entire time to help you spot the animals and teach you about the wildlife in the area. Once your time on the viewing platform is up, you’ll still have another beautiful 30-minute flightseeing experience to return you to Ketchikan. As the most in-depth and secluded Ketchikan bear watching option, the 4.5-hour Traitor’s Cove Bear Viewing tour is one you surely won’t want to miss.
