Katmai National Park

Dates: June 23 – 28, 2018

Deposit: $3,000 / Tuition: $7,595

All Aboard the Coastal Explorer

 Photograph the incredible bears and coastal landscapes of Alaska as you take an adventure around Katmai National Park in the Coastal Explorer, an 80-foot-long motor yacht. This trip will maximize exposure to bears and other animals by offering high maneuverability on the yacht. We’ll be able to investigate many areas, such as Geographic Harbor, Hallo Bay, Kukak Bay, and Kinak Bay, to visit those with the most bear activity. Our time will be maximized with the bears, so if the weather is good we will be with them all day. This is a very unique way to experience Katmai and will surely be once in a life time! 

 This is a small-group workshop with limited availability so call and reserve your spot today!!
