I read about the “Fortress” online and was excited to see it. My family, however, was not quite as motivated because we had just heard too many scary bear stories, the day before, on an ATV excursion.
We boarded the Fortress school bus shuttle, which left from Centennial Center in Sitka, and fifteen minutes later we arrived. The place does not look like much from the outside but all judgments go away as soon as you see those bears. Wow!
The people who operate the Fortress truly love these bears and it shows in everything that they do. Even the eagles and ravens benefit from the operation.
There is a charge for the shuttle, which they include in the ticket price. It is well worth it!
[Be aware of your time and schedule because the shuttle driver is not on a set schedule. We thought that we had our departure time worked out with him and that was not the case. Fortunately, I was watching the parking lot, saw him leaving, and we stopped him. We would have been late for our next activity]
