Witness the ways of these immense creatures in our remote, small group expedition!
Dates Available: July –August
Trip Duration: 2 nights, 3 days
Group Size: 2-4
Walrus viewing on the Alaska Peninsula is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and our remote cabin puts you just one mile away from the show! Male walrus haul-out on these distant beaches every summer, lounging in-between their quests of foraging for food. The 3,000 lb. sociable creatures bellow and snort at one another while basking in the sun in a herd of hundreds. When you’re not viewing the walrus, the endless terrain and beaches will serve as an exciting adventure! Unlike much of Alaska, these lands are no home to trees, but wild flowers and green tundra blanket the hillsides every summer instead. Scan the beaches for sea shells and glass balls, you and might even spot additional Alaskan wildlife, like wolves, bears, foxes and birds!
We are committed to ensuring that we do not disturb the walrus, and we want to promote their conservation and protection. A portion of the proceeds we earn from these trips are donated to the Alaska Conservation Foundation, with primary interest in protecting the oceans and coastlines of Alaska.

Walrus Viewing Sample Itinerary
Day 1- Arrival
Contact us for flight coordination information. Once you arrive you will be provided field transportation to our remote cabin within walking distance of the walrus viewing area. A hot dinner will be prepared by the guide each evening, and we will pack cold lunches to bring along on our daily adventures. Upon arrival you should have plenty of sunlight left in the day, so you can expect your guide to lead you to the walrus once you have settled in! This is, after all, the land of the midnight sun! We can conveniently view and photograph from eye level on the beach, or from up above on the bluffs. While the walrus might be the main attraction, you will also enjoy the unique scenery of this remote location. This area is home to various populations of seabirds, so keep your eye open for the Kittiwake and Murre! Be sure to bring extra sim cards and batteries for your camera!
Day 2- Full day
Your guide will prepare a tasty breakfast before you begin your morning adventure back to the walrus haul out and we hope our cozy cabin and the brisk Alaskan morning serve you well! On your way to the haul out you can scan the beaches to find yourself some souvenirs such as sea shells, beach glass, sand dollars and glass balls! Consider bringing your writing utensils to sketch the scenery or to take notes on the fascinating walrus behaviors! While the walrus won’t even notice us, you won’t be able to take your eyes off of them. Aside from staring in awe, we challenge you to help us count the walrus and contribute to our research efforts! Tally counters will be provided.
Day 3- Departure
Wake up and spend your last morning with us before your departure. This is a good time to walk the terrain with a cup of coffee, breathing in the fresh Alaskan air and the one of a kind scent of the Bering Sea. Don’t forget to sign our guest book, and feel free to read back on comments from the people before you. In this final day your guide will prepare breakfast, and you will be given a packed lunch.
