There is a single slot open on the first Homer Eagle trip: FEB 4-8, 2005. 5-DAY: $1599. If you are seriously interested in joining us, contact co-leader Greg Downing immediately by e-mail at: email@example.com.
Then consider joining me on one of the following small group trips:
#1: There is a still a single slot left on the September 10-15, 2005 Bear Boat trip to Katmai National Park. You will need to be in Anchorage on the 10th. The cost of the trip is $5,000. It is an expensive trip but Chuck Heim will safely put you within yards of these amazing creatures. The bears will be fishing for salmon in the streams and there is a fair chance of photographing yearling cubs on this trip. If you are seriously interested in filling the last slot, please make your $500 deposit at NANPA or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately and let us know that you will be sending a deposit check made out to "Arthur Morris" to us at PO Box 7245, Indian Lake Estates, FL, 33855. Please e-mail for additional details.
#2: Following the above trip, I will be leading a small group of photographers to the Silver Salmon Creek Lodge where we photograph the coastal brown bears fishing and clamming at close range and will have lots of great salmon fishing. There should be some young bears, and in most years there are one or more pairs of spring cubs. (And I am hoping that there may be some birds around as well.) We will most likely fly to Silver Salmon Creek Lodge on the morning of September 16, 2005 from Anchorage. We will do either a 7 day/six night trip (leaving on the 22nd) or 6 day/five night (leaving on the 21st) trip. Folks might be able to arrange to stay on a bit longer or arrive a bit earlier than the main group if that works better for them.
The 7 day/6 night package that includes all meals, guide service, lodging, local use of sea kayaks, fish preparation and photo/boat trips is $3320/person. The 6 day/5 night trip would be $2930 pp from Anchorage. Halibut fishing is $50 per person extra but David Coray has told me that the tides would be bad for a halibut trip during the week that we will be there but we may be able to squeeze in one trip at the end of the week. I hope that you can join us. Please e-mail me if you have any additional questions.
#3: I will be leading a second bear boat trip for Alaska Photo-Tours June 25-30 as in #1. Two half-days and four full days on the boat: $5,000.00. You will need to be in Anchorage on June 24th. We should have lots of point blank opportunities on the Coastal Brown Bears, breeding Bald Eagles, Glaucous-winged Gull chicks, and possibly fox. If you are seriously interested in filling the last slot, please make your $500 deposit at NANPA or e-mail us at email@example.com immediately and let us know that you will be sending a deposit check made out to "Arthur Morris" to us at PO Box 7245, Indian Lake Estates, FL, 33855. Please e-mail for additional details.
