We will be in Ketchikan on Wednesday July 23, 2008. Would Anan Creek be our best option for bear viewing or would you recommend another area. Thank you.
If Ketchikan is your best stop for bear viewing, yes... go to Anan. If other ports are also an option, Pack Creek out of Juneau should be VERY busy that week, and the bear tours at Hoonah are also likely to be very productive.
The only way to keep everyone happy is to delete my signature completely.
If anyone wants advice from a life-long Alaskan resident, please don't hesitate to ask.
