Commercial activities within the Alaska State Park system are permitted to ensure that visitors enjoy a safe and quality experience. Great Alaska holds permits from a number of the land managers including the Kenai National Wildife Refuge, Alaska State Parks, Chugach National Forest, Lake Clark National Park and others. If you'd like to know more about permitting and stakeholders , we are happy to talk about it.
Wildlife really IS wild, so you never know exactly when or where you will see a Moose or an Orca pod. At Great Alaska we increase your chances of wildlife viewing by building itineraries that put you in the best spots for certain species. For example, one day we may do a Bald Eagle float on the Kenai River, and the next fly to our BearCamp to spend a night or two in premium bear habitat. We may return to go on a whale watching and marine wildlife & glacier tour in Kenai Fjords, followed by a hike in Chugach State Park where we may spot a black bear or spawning salmon. Most trips are 7 days but we offer 3, 5 and 10 day trips as well.
