Chinitna Bay Bear Tours

Depart from Anchor Point near Homer for a 35 mile ride across Cook Inlet to Chinitna Bay in Lake Clark National Park. Once we arrive in the park, we will get out of the boat and walk a short distance to the viewing stations to watch bears. We typically see 10-20 bears per day, many at close range. We stay on the ground with the bears for about 2-3 hours, we see plenty of other wildlife such as sea otters, sea birds puffins, seals, and sometimes whales. Fishing or clamming can be added to the trip for an additional charge. Bear viewing by boat is typically $200-300 less than by plane. Chinitna Bay Bear Tours is the only bear viewing guide service that accesses Chinitna Bay and Lake Clark National Park by boat. Chinitna Bay Bear Tours offers guests a less crowded, more remote wilderness tour of one of the largest national parks in the United States. Departing out of Anchor Point, just a ten minute drive from Homer, you'll then boat across Cook Inlet into Chinitna Bay in Lake Clark National Park. Safely view Grizzly Bears up close in their natural habitat digging clams, fishing for salmon, or simply relaxing on the beach while taking in the breathtaking scenery.
