Overnight Bear Viewing Experience:

Picture waking up in the heart of Bear Country after a restful night's sleep! Start your day with a cup of coffee or tea on the observation deck of our 100’ vessel, anchored just a few hundred yards from the beach. Observe a mother bear teaching her cubs to forage along the shore or witness big boars battling for dominance.
