We went on the Stikine River trip as well as the Anan Creek Bear Observatory. Both were amazing. Even on a cloudy, rainy day, the majesty of the Stikine River and the Shakes Glacier did not disappoint. The observatory was busy with bear action; we saw about a dozen black bears and a mama brown bear and her two cubs. There was plenty of time to get all the photographs and videos we want.

Previous Guests Rave About Muddy Water Adventures
We had an excellent adventure today with Muddy Water. Scott and Mia were so knowledgeable and we saw so many bears, Eagles and other marine critters!
We went on two tours with Captain Zach; the Stikine River and the Anan Wildlife Observatory tours. Both days were spectacularly guided and enhanced by years of local experience. Zach knows how to make you feel welcomed and attends to every one of your questions. We’d go again if we have the opportunity.
