My friend and I went on a bear watching adventure with Ocean Outfitters a few days ago. It was evident from the start the passenger safety is a key focus for this organization.

We really appreciated how knowledgeable Captain Ron was and how respectful he was of every create that we came in contact with. We learned a lot from him.

We were very lucky to see bears, a mama bear and her cub and whales - it was magnificent! Although, we were informed that every day is different and they cannot guarantee what we would encounter, our entire trip was an adventure and well worth the money. We had smiles our faces the entire trip.

We will be back again. Thank you!

What a fantastic experience/adventure! Every detail was well planned, exceptionally coordinated and always with a high focus on guest safety. The fishing guides (Josh and Brody) were professional, experienced, fun and incredibly patient with first time open water fishers (me). Our bear watching guide (Ron) was a heath of information about the area and wildlife we observed. Catching a photo with two bears and two bald eagles in the same shot is pretty hard to beat!

The entire staff from inside customer service to the guides seemed to go out of their way to ensure a positive and memorable experience. I would highly recommend Ocean Outfitters to anyone or group looking for an amazing, safe and long remembered adventure.

We went out on the Zodiac with the totally awesome Misty as our guide. She was soooo good. Raised on a near by island with a total passion & respect for the wildlife, she was a real inspiration. We went to see whales; saw grey whales, sea lions, seals, otters, bald eagles & a wolf after a swim!
