Whale Watching, Bear Viewing, and Birding Tours

Wildlife viewing is among the most popular activities in Alaska. From whale watching for orcas or humpbacks, to brown bear viewing and Alaska birding tours, your friends and family will delight in meeting Alaska animals of all shapes and sizes. Learn about Alaska’s “big five”, their habits and habitats, their hunting and feeding behaviors, and then grab your camera or video and photograph away. Take a cruise to view seacoast and marine wildlife at home in Alaska’s many fjords and bays. With an abundance of animals in all regions of the state, your ticket to mind-blowing Alaska wildlife viewing is simply choosing what you want to see and booking a day tour or overnight adventures.
