After seeing reviews, we chose Browning Pass Charters for our bear watching trip. We were assured that the boat would go at a relaxing pace, which was needed for my tendancy for motion sickness, even on fairly calm waters. This was the best decision we made. Captain Mike was welcoming and full of knowledge and stories of the area. The morning we headed out was rainy and cold. The inside cabin with the coffee pot on the warm stove was a welcome sight!
It took an hour or so to get to the area where we started to see the bears. Mike was able to get us close enough for pictures, but not too close to startle the bears. We noticed that, after we watched the bears several minutes, other charter boats would show up with their passengers. This happened at several locations. With the inside cabin and large windows, we could wait in warmth and dryness until we saw a bear, then go out on deck or upstairs to take pictures in the rain. The other boats were open to the elements, and those on our boat were very happy to know we were dry and warm, with lots of space to move about.
We'd recommend this trip to everyone!
