I have been to both Anan and Neets Bay out of Ketchikan. Anan is superior and can be direct booked. Neets Bay is good too however but you will need to book via the ship shore excursions with Pro Mech, they do not direct book cruise ship passengers. There is also Traitor's Cove to consider, but that usually is a later run. These tours are much less canceled than other flights, so book with who fits your schedule best. For clarification- this is for BLACK bear viewing, some people prefer the browns.
