Alaska’s premier bear viewing destination, the Kodiak Brown Bear Center offers a true Alaskan adventure; world class bear-viewing, without boardwalks or large groups of tourists. The Kodiak Brown Bear Center is located on the southwest side of Kodiak Island in the heart of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, and provides exclusive guided bear viewing tours at the famous Thumb and O’Malley Rivers on Karluk Lake.
Each of our guests will have the opportunity to observe these magnificent monarchs of Kodiak in their natural and unspoiled habitat. It is a life-changing and awe-inspiring experience, especially when they stop and make direct eye contact with you. It’s during that brief and exhilarating moment you instantly realize the bears are just as interested in learning about you as you are about them.
