Our Story of Volcano Bay
"Alaska's Newly discovered Bear Viewing Mecca "
Alaska's newly discovered Top Bear viewing destination, without the crowds of Katmai or Lake Clark and no Park rangers running around like Walt Disney World.
Located At the end of the Alaska Peninsula bordering the Aleutian Islands lies the last bastion of untouched wilderness encompassing Izembek WIldlife Refuge and the Alaska Maritime refuge including Unimak Island, Deer Island and Sanak Island this is what we call home. We offer exclusive daily boat or plane access to the hundres of mile of coastal lagoons and rivers considered to be the most remote area left in Alaska. This lets us spend time with large Coastal Brownbears and Wolf in complete peace and harmony without any crowds or others around.
Our main focus on our private piece of Paradise is Volcano Bay approxiamtely 25 miles from Coldbay. This pristine lagoon is shrouded in snow covered volcanoes and waterfalls to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the East.
In the late 90's Capt Charlie while flying around the Southern tip of the AK Pennisula discovered one of the most unicque and remote Wildlife Ecosystems in all of Alaska.
These tidal lagoons get huge runs of Sockeyes, Chum and Silver Salmon July-Oct. While flying around we also noticed a record numbers of Brown Bears in small areas activaly feeding and raising cubs. We started flyfishing in the area and after seeing the very active Brown Bears utizing our lagoon we started taking pictures of them. WIth myself guiding flyfishing and Brown bear photography trips in Katmai National Park for close to 30yrs I quickly realized the Worldclass Bear Viewing Mecca i had discovered here and we call this place Volcano Bay. After visiting here on special occasions and doing a few day trips over past 25 years we decided to set up and start offfering structured packages to Volcano Bay. During the fall of 2019 we purchased an Oceanfront property on the lagoon and will be building a small Outcamp for support this year , with a New Lodge the following year.
We have guided over 50 of the Top Wildlife Photographers and Artist in the World to some of the top images ever taken, here are a few of them
