It will depend. My 2 mid Sept trips had bear watching over.
Traitor's Cove would be possibility. I suggest you contact a vender, and book, if they recommend it. Ask for the option to cancel if sightings drop off prior. Call the week before you go and find out what they are seeing.
Thanks Karen and Case. We were in Katmai on 8/31 on our last trip before boarding cruise southbound in first week of Sept, so have never been this late or w/o land portion. We're doing Dawn from SF before they discontinue. So there may still be bears on Sept11-14 from port above but there may not be any tours running due to permits. Was that what we said? Do salmon runs tend to end by then or it is different each year?
