Wildlife Excursions

Are you dreaming of seeing Alaska's Big 5 land mammals — bear, moose, Dall sheep, wolf, and caribou? Or perhaps the Ocean 5 — humpback whales, Steller sea lions, orca, grey whales, and playful sea otters? One of your best bets is a wildlife excursion with air, land, or sea transportation, taking you to the best wildlife viewing destinations in Alaska.

Wildlife viewing excursions are available in all regions of Alaska and some of the most popular tours include fly-in bear viewing to remote national parks and wildlife refuges; boat excursions in search of humpback whales and migrating gray whales; or the ultimate Alaska wildlife tour — a guided excursion to get up close and personal with polar bears along the Arctic coast. So, if you're looking to see brown bears in the wild — or perhaps having a breathtaking encounter with a shy wolf pack — or experience a migration of tens of thousands of caribou streaming across the tundra — sign on for a guided wildlife viewing excursion. Alaska’s wildlife and wild places are waiting for you!

From half-day trips to multi-day adventures, let experienced guides share their knowledge of animal behaviors and natural history with you in safe and natural surroundings. Bears, and moose, and whales (and more) — oh my!
