Looking for something different and big and hairy – check out the largest grizzly bears in existence at the remote wilderness of Katmai National Park, Alaska. Based aboard the 6 berth grizzly cruiser, you coast the shorelines looking for the action. During the month of July there is no end of action with the grizzlies mating, and then once the mating is over, mothers appearing with their newborn cubs. As I am sure you can imagine, grizzlies mating involves a fair amount of noise and some pretty intense face offs between the males – perfect for photographers looking for some excitement! Mothers with their newborn cubs generally appear from July through to September and this is enough to make the hardest wildlife enthusiasts melt as these cuddly balls of fur wobble their way along in their mothers footsteps. On top of this…the salmon starts coming in during July (through until September) and this is therefore where most grizzlies will congregate – again some pretty intense action as the larger males dominate the best fishing spots…that’s not to say there isn’t the occasional cheeky challenger though. If you want to get some action earlier in the season then May and June are also months when you can expect to see grizzlies either cruising the shorelines in search of clams, or alternatively grazing the grasses in the sedge-like meadows.
