We went on the small boat operator who I believe was Utoro Cruise: Kamuiwakka cruises. We paid the 円8000 on the advice that this would get us closer to the shore and the boat travelled quicker which allowed more time at each site.

We took the 2 hour long brown bear course (went end of June) from Utoro -- we saw an eagle and 4 bears (one lone bear, and a mother with two cubs!!!!). As the boat is still kind of big (45 person max), we couldn't get that close to shore. I'm very happy we got to see bears! My one... More

Everything went perfectly, we were met at the harbour... More

Took the morning nature viewing trip from Shari. Boat is large, modern, and easily accommodates all passengers. The trip is interesting, with an excellent view of the peninsula. We were fortunate to spot a mother bear with two cubs in tow walking on the rocky shore. Amazing opportunity! Trips seems rather long, as the return leg is viewing the same... More
