See the famous Tim Threadwell bears in Hallow Bay and the Maze. Observe one of nature's mightiest creatures in home in his native habitat.

Warning: spectacular scenery can be very distracting
and as exciting as the bears.

Guided trips from one to four days available. Day trips are around four hours with approximately two hours at the viewing site. These trips are scheduled in June thru August.

Prices for parties of 2 to 4 guests. Longer trips are available.

Multiple-day trips include air transport to and from the boat, all meals and fishing gear for salmon and halibut (clients must have a fishing license). The Bear Hunter, our 58-foot motor-sailor, will be your home. The boat is warm, dry and equipped with galley, shower and toilet. Another warning: you will gain weight on the cooking or the cook will know the reason why.

Please see 'Important Info' for recommendations on gear and weather.


I have been in Alaska over 38 years hunting and fishing every chance I get. My biggest thrill is getting customers close to the bears or hooked to the fish.
