Location of Adventure
Katmai, 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
R/T flights float plane flights, 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, chest 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
This small-ship-based Alaska adventure cruise requires a moderate level of physical fitness. Travelers must be able to walk at least two miles in varied conditions including rough, uneven terrain, shallow water, and through mud while wearing hip waders (which can be a bit awkward and uncomfortable). For safety reasons, it is not possible to divide the group or for individuals to stay in one place while the rest of the group moves. In order to maximize bear viewing and photography opportunities, days may be long and dinner may be served late. Travelers must be of sound health and able to maintain a positive attitude in a wild and remote 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.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home

Please note that this itinerary has two different departure cities (Kodiak and Homer), depending on the trip date.

Arrive in Kodiak/Homer in time for a 7 pm welcome dinner and orientation on Day 1. Our guide can facilitate transfers to some local attractions for those passengers arriving before 1 pm. We recommend arriving a day early, as unpredictable weather in Alaska can cause flight delays. Exact times of our flights between Kodiak/Homer and the Natural Habitat Ursus vary according to weather and other logistical factors beyond our control. We are scheduled to return to Kodiak/Homer on Day 7. You are free to depart from Kodiak/Homer anytime on Day 8, but we strongly recommended choosing a flight in the afternoon in the unlikely event that poor weather prevents us from returning by float plane as scheduled on the itinerary. Should travelers be required to remain in Kodiak/Homer longer than anticipated due to inclement weather, either before, after 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 1-800-543-89171-800-543-8917 FREE. 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.
