De aanpak van Tripadvisor met betrekking tot beoordelingen
Voordat Tripadvisor-beoordelingen geplaatst worden, gaan ze door een geautomatiseerd trackingsysteem dat informatie verzamelt en de volgende vragen beantwoordt: hoe, wat, waar en wanneer. Als het systeem iets detecteert dat mogelijk in tegenspraak is met onze communityrichtlijnen, wordt de beoordeling niet gepubliceerd.
Wanneer het systeem een probleem detecteert, wordt een beoordeling mogelijk automatisch afgekeurd, naar de beoordelaar gestuurd voor goedkeuring, of handmatig beoordeeld door ons team van contentspecialisten die 24/7 aan de kwaliteit van de beoordelingen op onze website werken.
Ons team controleert elke beoordeling die op onze website geplaatst wordt en volgens onze bezoekers niet aan onze communityrichtlijnen voldoet.

Enjoyed our visit. My 4 and 6 year old granddaughters were thrilled to see the Alaska Brown bears and the black bears. The introductory video was informative and despite the busload of visitors there were plenty of opportunities for viewing them. The gift shop seemed to have every item about bears ever made.

Stopped here on a 3 part best of Sitka tour. Guaranteed to see bears for sure lol. Awesome mission and friendly staff. Spent only about 20 minutes so not sure what price is if not part of tour. Several Black bears and brown bears. A few signs to read and a short video presentation.

This was a stop on our Alaskan Cruise. We had rented a car and explored on our own. This was one of our stops. Pretty cool place. The bears are incredible.

Visited as part of a package. Great up close views of black and brown bears. Also a great story behind why they started rescuing bear cubs.

Fortress of the Bears is a small rescue center about 5 miles from town center in Sitka. We chose to ride the public bus system there but that was an absolute poop show. The very small buses only run once an hour and hundreds are trying to get on these buses since this is the most popular attraction in Sitka. When the bus arrived people were freaking out nearly trampolining children to get on. Some A-hole even screamed out push your way to the front inciting madness. People are just awful sometimes and we were pushed away missing that bus. Not wanting to wait another hour we chose to leave that non sense and just have a tour company drive us. It cost a lot more but was worth it in the end not dealing with that craziness.

These bears are rescued black and brown bears that cannot be released back into the wild. The bears have large natural habitat pins they roam freely in. They seem to be very well kept and happy. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the animals. Even saw a bald eagle that hangs around the pins. Overall I’d say it was well worth the time and money to see the Fortress of the Bear. I would highly recommend, just make sure you have transportation.

I don't typically post or do reviews...but I have to tell you about our experience at the Fortress of the Bear in Sitka, AK. Today my husband and I did not have any plans for while at Sitka, but last minute I propsed we look into visiting Fortress of the Bear.

So we took the blue line bus for $2 (caution the bus is not very big and there's only 1 bus for the whole loop). We got there and bought our ticket at the door. It was pretty simple to get to after walking a couple of minutes after the bus dropped us off.

I can't even describe in words how AMAZING this place is. I'm from Delaware so I've not seen bears outside of the zoo. The passion of the workers and just the idea behind the safe place for the orphan bears to be kept/loved/cared for actually moved me to tears. Seriously. I was in just awe.

The workers at the observation platform were amazing and just watching the bears was indescribeable. When we started to leave, I could feel myself so excited and happy we decided to pop by and I actually was overcome with emotion! As we were exiting I recognized the owner from the video sitting off to the side. I got myself together and went over and thanked him and he was so thankful and his passion was also evident (and authentic). The best $15 I have ever spent! Please go and see for yourself!

I undertook a tour that was Otters, Bears and Eagles and the Fortress of The Bear shows what's possible. The founder took what I believe was a disused timber pulp site with large tanks that now house the bears.

Great work to help these bears that would otherwise be euthanized, and they are also placed in zoos etc.

Really enjoyed seeing 5 brown and 2 black bears during our visit (And several wild bald eagles.)

The staff will use the buckets of treats to do some tricks for food. Very fun to watch (but I didn’t ask how they can put back into the wild - or if that is the plan). The few black bears were active an playful while we were there — all rescued as babies when their moms were killed.

This can be a 30-60 min stop. There are 2 large enclosures with a 40 yd-ish boardwalk between. One way out and then down to Gift shop on main level.

You can get a tour here or we road e-bikes from cruise pier. Very little parking up close. Most park across the street. Prices were about $15 / person.

We grabbed an excursion to this place at the port of Sitka and it did not disappoint. Watching the short video was really informative. There were 5 big brown orphaned bears and 3 black bears. One of the brown bears spent most of our visit trying to put a road cone on his head as a hat. The staff were lovely and the excursion was worth doing as when there are numerous cruise ships in they stop allowing walk-in visitors.

Very disappointed in the size and condition of this place. The cruise ship really pumped this place up only to add to our disappointment. Was basically an old sewage treatment plant and a little natural area. Maybe five bears. We got off the shuttle bus, paid and once we saw the poor condition of the place we tried to hop back on the departing shuttle to leave. Sad really.
