Southeast Alaska Wildlife
Southeast Alaska is famous for its diverse and abundant wildlife. Long an attraction for zoologists and other animal
scientists, tourists and residents regularly enjoy spotting 50 foot humpback whales (most famous for their haunting
submarine melodies), porpoises, sea lions, sea otters, eagles, Sitka black tail deer, black bears, mountain goats and
occasional timber wolves. Killer whales are less common but are known to frolic in some of the deeper inland
channels, and nearby Admiralty Island boasts the world’s largest – and most famous – concentration of Brown Bears.
