WEBINAR | The Mighty Brown Bears of Katmai
Standing in solitude in the presence of the world’s largest coastal grizzlies is a wildlife lover’s dream. Nat Hab Expedition Leader Shawn Eggleston leads you through this coveted encounter during a webinar about our immersive adventure among Alaska’s giant brown bears. Take a virtual journey with Shawn as we venture along the Pacific coast and into Katmai National Park's roadless wilderness. Explore from our floating base camp, the Natural Habitat Ursus, a privately chartered small ship that accommodates just eight guests. And when you step ashore, you’ll come within feet of enormous wild bears, viewing them safely and on foot as they feast on salmon and clams, tend to their young cubs, and frolic in the lush summer landscape. See an Alaska less discovered: bigger, wilder and more awe-inspiring than you ever imagined. This expedition couldn’t be more different than cruise ships and tour buses—it’s truly a life-altering journey for the adventurous few.
In this clip, a Nat Hab photography tour takes a hike to the falls at Kaflia Bay, and they're seriously rewarded with a surreal grizzly encounter. Nat Hab grizzly bear expert Brad Josephs says the mama grizzly with her two cubs "may be the prettiest bear he's ever seen!"
Alaska Grizzly Bear Trip: Watch Grizzlies in the Wild
This 30-second clip shows you what a day in the life of an Alaskan grizzly bear is like! This is one of our favorite grizzly bear videos by Brad Josephs, featuring GoPro footage of two bears patiently fishing in Katmai National Park in front of a gorgeous mountain landscape.
NHA naturalist Brad Josephs filmed this unique grizzly bear video by hiding his GoPro in a stream during a Nat Hab Alaska trip in Katmai National Park. You'll see a mama grizzly teaching her cub how to fish for salmon, with some unbelievable underwater footage!

WEBINAR | Step Ashore: Experience Alaskan Brown Bears Up Close
To see Alaska’s giant brown bears in the wild is a coveted dream for any wildlife lover…but to do it away from crowds, in solitude, and up close on foot is an incomparable thrill. You can’t imagine just how close you’ll get until you see for yourself during this webinar with Expedition Leader Brad Josephs, Nat Hab’s premier bear naturalist. Join Brad in the roadless wilderness of Katmai National Park, which we access via our chartered small ship…and discover that you can come safely within feet of the world’s largest coastal grizzlies! Just eight guests sail aboard the Natural Habitat Ursus, following the scenic Katmai coastline in southwest Alaska in search of abundant brown bears. They’re totally nonchalant about our presence, busy feasting on fish and clams, while cubs sometimes frolic and roughhouse nearby. The photo opportunities are simply matchless, and our guests who have joined this trip have described it as “life-changing.”
