Location of Adventure
Kodiak, Alaska
Group Size Limit
Approximately 8 Travelers
We purposefully limit our group sizes for all of our trips, and this is especially true for our photographic adventures. With only 8 travelers, you’re assured of plenty of space and plenty of personalized attention when you need it. As a small group, we can be nimble, and position ourselves to maximize the best photo opportunities, and to get out early in search of the best light and the best subject matter.
Our Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
 
Our Private Leaders
 
Included
R/T flights from Kodiak to Kukak Bay, accommodations, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, bottled water, services of NHA Expedition Leader (specific leaders subject to change), boat crew and local staff, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, hip waders for shore excursions, permits and entrance fees, all taxes.

Waders: We will provide waders for travelers to use for the shore excursions. If you have an odd foot size (very large or very small) please let us know prior to your trip.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip, alcoholic beverages, all gratuities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
This trip does not require a high degree of physical fitness, but travelers must be able to walk 2 miles in shallow water, over rough terrain, and through mud wearing hip waders (which can be a bit awkward and uncomfortable). For safety reasons, it is not possible to divide the group or to stay on one place while the rest of the group moves. We ask that travelers be of sound health and able to maintain a positive attitude in a wild setting.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip involves watching grizzlies on foot in unprotected open areas. While bears are unpredictable and sighting them can never be guaranteed, our groups have never missed seeing them. The unpredictability of bears can also lead to dangerous situations. They are wild animals, and we ask travelers to heed the rules set by our staff and to understand that this trip can, potentially, present harmful situations. We ask that all travelers take their own safety into consideration when signing onto this (and any) adventure. On this trip we experience bears from a rare and fascinating perspective, at eye level! Very few people in the world have an opportunity to see these powerful and beautiful creatures so intimately, and we are proud to be among the select few able to do so.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Kodiak in time for a 7pm dinner orientation on Day 1. Our guide can facilitate transfers to some of Kodiak's local attractions for those passengers arriving before 1:30pm. We recommend arriving a day early as weather in Alaska can cause flight delays. Exact times of our flights between Kodiak and our Grizzly ship vary according to weather and other logistical factors beyond our control. We are scheduled to arrive back in Kodiak on Day 7 for Photo Tour. You are free to depart from Kodiak anytime on Day 8, but we strongly recommended choosing a flight in the afternoon in the unlikely event poor weather prevents us from returning to Kodiak by float plane as scheduled on the itinerary. Should travelers be required to remain in Kodiak longer than anticipated due to inclement weather, either after the trip or during the trip, they will be responsible for their own expenses.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
