My husband & I will be on the Sapphire Princess and will be in Ketchican on July 20th. I was wondering if anyone has done the Neets Bay Bear Watch. There is a bear sightings not guaranteed disclaimer... I would hate to waste $600 for a hike in the woods. Has anyone done this? Is is too early in the season? Also, Princess has two times for this excursion, 11-2 and 12:30-3:30. Is one of these times better than the other?
Yes I have gone to Neets and Anan. You are early- frankly since you ask- I wouldn't book this myself- Neets is usually a later sighting, go with Anan for your timeframe. Begining of Anan has browns then later blacks. Book direct for savings and sure reservations.
