Default Bear viewing in late August- have U?

Trying to book a tour with Island Wings and was told that the end of August is not peak for Anan. We will be in Ketchikan on August 23- has anyone been there around that time of year? Karen16? If my chances of seeing larger numbers of bear are better in another location, I'll book to go there, but have been reading that Anan is the premier spot... Advice?

I have been to Anan and Neets Bay. Traitor's Cove perhaps may be your best option?? I would definately go with Michele's recommendation. This year, she was up front with me about the water levels being too high for Anan, after some thought, we went flightseeing instead as I was also going for bears in Hoonah and Denali Park.

We were in Alaska this past August and did not see any bears at all. Didn't see much wildlife to speak of, but we didn't take any inland tours.

You have to take tours, for wildlife viewing. Alaska is nothing like the enhanced brochure photos.
