Bears By Boat Photo Tour

Alaska Katmai Coast Grizzly/Brown Bear Photography Tour

On this amazing adventure, you will have 7-days to immerse yourself in a majestic landscape few travelers to Alaska ever visit. Starting from Homer, Alaska we will cruise in our private chartered ship to the rugged and remote coast of Katmai National Park. You will be photographing bears in a way most can only imagine, in some cases just yards away, while being surrounded by snow-capped mountains, glaciers and volcanoes.

Having a private chartered ship, offers us opportunity not only to follow and photograph some of the largest brown bears in the world, but also explore different locations and bears along the coastline as they fish, dig for clams and roam along the numerous beaches and coves. Ashore, you will hike with your guide and group leader Dave Bachrach to photograph these majestic bears. The days are long and photo opportunities are abundant. Dave works hard at getting you to the right place at the right time for your photography by using his extensive knowledge of bear behavior and photography experience.

This is a limited participant, 8 maximum boat-based photography tour aboard a private chartered ship. Since we sleep aboard we can be flexible be with our daily plans, often traveling at night you can find yourself in a new location when you awake! Departing from Homer, we also have special opportunities along the way to photograph marine mammals including whales, seals and sea otters.
