July 13-20, 2021 Maximum 6 photographers, SOLD OUT. Let us know if you're interested in 2022.

We will honor the 2020 price if you .

2020 has been an eventful year, but the bears have been in great form, unaffected by events in the world around them.
We're looking forward to 2021!

It seems like just yesterday, but 2021 will be my 20th year returning to the Cook Inlet in Alaska to photograph America's most spectacular animals.

Spending a week [6 nights, giving us 5 full and two partial shooting days for the second session -- longer than other trips to the area] with Alaskan Coastal Brown Bears, often called Grizzlies, is truly a life-changing experience. Unlike the bears at Brooks Lodge in Katmai, which are stressed out and offer very limited viewing, we'll be able to see bears in their native and un-stressed environment.

One day the bears will be grazing on the nutrient rich grass and the next they'll be up to their shoulder digging in the mud for clams. Without question these are my favorite weeks of the year.
