Surrounded by Katmai National Park, McNeil River Bear Sanctuary and Lake Clark National Park we have daily access to the premier destinations to observe and photograph the giant coastal grizzlies (brown bears) in their natural environment fishing and fighting for salmon. Everyone has seen the spectacular pictures of bears catching fish at Brooks or McNeil Falls. What many people don't realize is that no single location consistently offers an abundance of bears. The reason is that bears follow the salmon runs which peak in different locations at different times. 

Equipment requirements: A digital SLR and a back up camera if you have one.
Lenses: 300mm / 400mm /500mm / wide angle / 100-400 / these lenses will all be good for this trip. If you are using a 300mm you might want to be sure to bring along a teleconverter preferably a 1.4. Tripod. Clothing requirements: The weather in Alaska can be quite unpredictable at this time of year. Dressing in layers is best. We recommend the following outerwear. Long Sleeved Shirt, Jeans/Slacks, Warm Hat & Gloves, Insulated Boots, Long Underwear, Windbreaker or Jacket, Wool Sweater or Fiberfill Vest, Winter Coat, Raingear and waterproof knee-high boots.
