Default SALMON - Infinity July 13

Does anyone know when the Salmon are running in Alaska. Would like to book the bear watching tour, but I'm told the salmon may not be running at that time.

Thanks for the information.

July is big month for salmon in most of Alaska, where is the bear watching tour? Mid July is big time for red, pink, and silver salmon.

Lanz. Hello fellow Infinity 07/13/01cruiser. Bill is correct. Almost all salmon are available in Saltwater and Freshwater. Lot's of fishing excursions/charters available. To view bears scouring the waterways and streams for salmon, it depends on which P.O.C.tour you're interested in. For the cruise, only 48 days
to go! Jeffrey

This one, pretty pricey though ($250)

Take off from the bustling Ketchikan harbor by floatplane on a wildlife adventure that is available only to a limited number of visitors. Your destination is a small settlement and wildlife observation area at Neets Bay. Access to this bear viewing area on a rich salmon spawning stream is restricted by permit, to minimize the impact on the wildlife and the resources. Your pilot will be your guide as you listen to the taped narration on the scenic flight to Neets Bay. Fly by Salmon Falls Resort, the historic settlement of Loring, Traitors Cove, Bushy Point and enter Neets Bay. After landing, take a short trail hike as your guide explains the history of Neets Bay facility en-route to the wildlife observation area. From this vantage point, overlooking the estuary at the head of Neets Bay, bears, eagles and seals are regularly spotted fishing for salmon at the stream. Board your plane for the return flight over mountain lakes and waterfalls, keeping an eye out for mountain goats. Bring plenty of film to record the wildlife and beautiful views of rugged mountains and lush forest valleys. The likelihood of seeing bears on this tour is good, but sightings are not guaranteed. Note: This excursion operates only from mid-July until mid-September.

Hi Jeff, I'm counting the days too, the reviews of the ship are fantastic!

Thinking of taking the Bear Watching tour out of Ketchikan. Lana

As I have replied re the bear watching out of Ketchikan- I only recommend this trip at the earliest the end of July through beg of Sept. A better bet would be to get to the shore excursion desk right when it opens and inquire what they saw the week before. Be sure to note the person who tells you this- then book through the ship if you are intent on going. If they claim sightings, verify this on the tour. You may then have recourse if you don't see any and they report they did not see any the previous days. By the way the ship tours sometimes use Taquan Air- I went on the "ship tour" plane with passengers who paid $25 more than me.

Thanks Karen, Celebrity is not offering this tour online. Will take your advice and wait until we're on board or book directly with Taquan Air.
