Take a short 20-minute flight
over the lush wilderness of the Tongass National Forest and arrive at
Traitors Cove. You’ll be met at the dock by
your personal Alaska bear viewing guide and driven about a quarter mile into the
forest to the Margarite Creek Bear Viewing observatory platform. After a short,
easy walk up to the wildlife viewing platform, you’ll be at a prime location to
see Alaska’s REAL fisherman! Black bears can be seen plunging into the rushing
water to eat wild salmon that are going upstream to spawn.
Besides bears feeding, you’ll also likely see Bald Eagles,
as well as the salmon battling their way upstream. Your naturalist/guide will
answer any questions you have about the local wildlife, flora and fauna.
The U.S. Forest Service restricts access to Margarite
Observatory by permit, so only small numbers of visitors have the opportunity to
visit this incredible site. It’s not to be missed.
