Anan Bear & Wildlife Observatory Day Tour from Wrangell AK

Take this tour to experience the excitement of World Class bear viewing from spacious observation decks overlooking two cascading waterfalls. Each summer thousands of spawning salmon attract Brown Bears, Black Bears, Bald Eagles, and seals that feed in the lagoon.
Operating on "Animal Time" for the best viewing opportunities! The AnAn Observatory is located 35 miles southeast of Wrangell on the mainland's Cleveland Peninsula.
The adventure begins as we travel in covered, heated boats the thirty-five miles to AnAn via Eastern Passage, a beautiful boat ride in protected waters between Wrangell Island and the Mainland. When we get to AnAn we will off-load at the trailhead and be greeted by US Forest Service personnel, who provide a brief orientation before we begin (description below). PLEASE BOOK EARLY. SPACE IS LIMITED!
Cancellation Policy: There are no refunds. All sales are final.
Change Fee Policy: If changes are allowed on a tour or activity, a $20.00 per reservation change fee will be applied for any change to a reservation. Please note that some tours and activities do not allow any changes. Date changes can be made only if we can confirm availability on the new date. While we cannot guarantee any changes can be made, all change requests must be submitted a minimum of 24 hours prior to the tour departure and must be handled on an individual basis through our Reservations Center.
We will then assemble, and walk the approximately 1/2 mile to the observatory on a boardwalk trail that is reasonably flat with bridges over waterways. This walk takes 20 to 30 minutes and has uneven terrain and numerous stairs. Guests need to be reasonably fit and able to walk well. You will be accompanied by guides every step of the way.
All of our Guides are Alaska Residents with extensive wilderness experience. Your guide will interpret local flora and fauna as well as history and Tlingit Culture as it pertains to the AnAn area. We usually spend about 3 hours at the Observatory, but will stay longer if the bears are late or the group wants additional time. Oftentimes, the group is saturated with bear viewing within about 3 hours and if the consensus is to get to the food on the boat, we will leave accordingly. Every day is different, we are in nature and things happen in a natural way. If we are to capitalize on the opportunities, we must be flexible.
We arrive back in Wrangell at approximately 2:30 pm or about 6 hours after departure. This is an all day affair. You will want to bring food for the return trip to Wrangell. After the walking and bear viewing, you will be hungry. Soft drinks and bottled water are provided for your convenience.
Alaskans guide all of our tours. Our guides have extensive knowledge of the area as well as knowledge of the local flora and fauna. All guides have Emergency Trauma Technician (or higher) medical certification. All guides are licensed, certified by the US Coast Guard, and all of our operations are fully insured. Safety is our highest priority in all activities.
All guests to AnAn must be able to walk well on uneven surfaces.
