Located southwest of Juneau, Admiralty Island falls within the Tongass National Forest. Admiralty Island is perhaps best known as being home to the highest density of brown bears in North America numbering close to an estimated 1700 – more than all of the lower 48 combined. The majority of the island is occupied by the Admiralty Island National Monument – a vast wilderness of old-growth temperate rainforest.
The mouth of Seymour Canal is located on the east side Admiralty Island. The canal is a a 60-mile long inlet that nearly cuts the island in two and is a world-class kayaking destination. One of the best locations to view bears on the island is at Pack Creek, located in Seymour Canal.
This week, Sea Wolf Adventures’ own Chef Dave and Captain Hans take us paddling on a 70-mile, 5 day kayak trip exploring the calm waters of Seymour Canal, hiking in Admiralty’s pristine temperate rainforest and sharing some of their epic bear viewing in Pack Creek. We guarantee after watching this you will add Seymour Canal to your southeast Alaska bucket list!
