Seeing bears from the road anywhere?

We're spending 3 days on Kodiak Island in June. Bear viewing isn't the main focus of our trip (military and Russian history, bird watching, etc.), however it would be super if we could see the great Kodiak Bears in action. We don't want to do the air plane bear viewing tours, but with a rental car, what are some of the spots where we have a chance of seeing bears? For example, I understand there's a small island near the city with an aqua-culture research facility. How's that area? Where else?

Very slim chance to see bears on the road system in Kodiak in June from what I have been told by multiple people there. Maybe in August, which is when I saw them, and has a much higher chance.
