Default Best time of day to see bear?

We want to take the Remote Bush Exploration & Brown Bear Search
excursion in Icy Strait Point. You can pick a time from 8 in the morning until noon to start. Is early morning better than late morning?
Anyone know?
Thank you.

It appears you are looking at a ship excursion??? These are very limiting in Hoonah. They use school buses and you only have access at the platforms.

I went independent last year. Did some great hiking, berry picking and walked up the side of a stream for bear viewing. Just 4 of us. Yes the guide was armed, but far superior experience compared to on and off a bus at fixed locations.


The great benefit of dealing direct with the vender is to inquire of their recommended timing.
