What to See in Southeast Alaska and When…


You’ll undoubtedly see whales no mater when you visit but if you’re looking to see as many whales as possible … mid-May through mid-August is your best bet.

Dry Days

It rains … a lot. It is a rain forest after all. If you’re looking to stay away from the liquid sunshine, April through June is when you’ll want to visit.

Bear Sightings

Catching a glimpse of a wild brown or black bear scouring the shoreline is a sight to see. Springtime is the best time to see it happen.

They require a combination of dark, clear nights and specific solar activity. The best chance to see the Aurora is in the Spring or Fall.

Spawning Salmon

Mid-July through August is the best time to see streams and rivers over-flowing with salmon.

Let the snow-covered peaks and gushing waterfalls be the backgrounds for your photos. Early to mid-Spring is the prime time to see both.
