Our newest trip is to view walrus in bristol bay. fly across katmai national park and past the valley of 10,000 smokes to land in a lake near the coast of bristol bay, alaska's largest wild salmon fishery. from there we will hike a couple miles to a bluff overlooking a walrus haul out where 500-3000 animals are sunning themselves, coming in and out of the surf and jostling for position. These rare animals can seldom be viewed from so close and in such large numbers. This is a truly wild and unique experience.
flight time is about 2 hours each way, and this trip includes 3-4 hours on the ground.
Cost: $1300 per person
DRESS WARMLY AND BRING RAIN GEAR (INCLUDING JACKET AND PANTS). DO NOT EXPECT THE WEATHER TO BE THE SAME WHERE WE GO AS IT IS IN HOMER. LAYERS ARE GREAT. SO ARE HATS AND GLOVES.
WEAR GOOD WALKING SHOES: this trip covers almost four miles of walking over uneven terrain. You must be physically fit to make this walk to see the walrus.
BRING A LUNCH AND WATER.
BRING YOUR CAMERA!
BINOCULARS ARE RECOMMENDED, AS IS BUG REPELLENT.

Are you interested in the ultimate alaskan safari? it is possible to do a combo trip to visit the walrus in bristol bay and the bears at brooks falls. this is a long 12 hour day trip, but really the ultimate experience: flying over mountains, glaciers, volcanos and lakes, and landing and walking amongst some of alaska's largest land mammals.
this trip includes the walrus viewing trip, and then we will fly to Brooks camp and spend 2-3 hours on the ground viewing brown bears fishing in brooks river.
