This was certainly the best day of our six in Alaska (although the glacier trekking was a close second). I highly recommend this excursion and ABAK. It really was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I went with my husband and two teenagers (age 14 and 16). Our guide, Liz, was

Thank you Liz!! We really appreciate you providing this detailed feedback. Pack Creek is so unique and special, definitely worth the trip! I will make sure to pass your kind words onto our Liz as well. Excellent tip for some guests - this is a more passive wildlife and scenery watching tour than our other tours. There is more down time and observation, sometimes 3 to 4 hours of sitting peacefully watching bears, eagles, and other wildlife. With no cell service, this can be especially hard on some guests so please consider that when picking your tour. For many of us though, 4 hours of wildlife watching is an amazing day and the best way to spend a vacation. Please let us know if you have any questions about what tour is best for your group. Thanks again Liz and have a great rest of your vacation!

This was an Amazing Experience from the Float Plane to the Bear Viewing. Our Guide, Wade, was very easygoing, helpful and accommodating. The Ranger on the Island was very knowledgeable. I would definitely do it again. Everything was provided, boots, rain gear and Lunch.

We were accompanied by Curt for this excursion. We travelled via the Douglas Island ranges in a float plane to where the kayaks were stashed on Swan Island. The views from the plane were stunning. We then kayaked to Pack Creek bear sanctuary. We had three bear sightings.

WOW!!! That sounds like an amazing day at Pack Creek! I have never seen deer swimming in the ocean let alone in this amazingly beautiful location so that is very special. Everyday is different at Pack Creek, because it is truly "Wild Alaska," we regularly see bears, a huge variety of birds, deer, and some marine life. This tour is perfect for anyone wanting to see true wilderness and experience the uncertainty of that as well. Some days we see nothing but beautiful scenery and hear nothing but the wind, other days are filled with unexpected sights throughout. Come prepared for the unknown! Thank you for joining us and we loved taking you on an adventure!
