Watch for black and brown bear throughout your trip. Along the shoreline, on the rocky slopes in glacial fjords and along salmon streams. Discovery’s summer cruising schedule also includes some bear viewing tours to Pack Creek Bear Observatory and Anan Creek Bear Observatory but often the most unforgettable bear encounters are in our favorite bays.

On Discovery’s wildlife cruises we anchor (most evenings) in a beautiful and pristine bay. The spectacular scenery and solitude are not the only things that draw us here.

Bear viewing at Pack Creek Bear Observatory

Pack Creek Bear Observatory, an excellent place for bear viewing, is situated on Admiralty Island only a short distance from Juneau, Alaska.

A visit to Pack Creek is a personal experience for Captains’ Ben and John Swanson. In the early 1980’s they were befriended by a man named Stan Price who had built a float cabin in the estuary at Pack Creek in 1945. Shortly thereafter Mr Price found an orphaned female cub on the beach and raised her to adulthood. In turn, there were a reported 82 bears born at Pack Creek in the period until he died in 1989 who became accustomed to human presence.
