We offer two 4-hour trips daily as opposed to 3-hour trips as we feel more time makes for a better experience. You’ve traveled a long way to come see polar bears and this allows you to spend a little more time with them. Plus we are out during hours when other tour operators are not, so we have the place to ourselves at times. We also offer more flexibility on departure and return times, for example, if there are clear skies forecasted for the morning, we can go out a little earlier and catch a great sunrise. We have protection from the wind and elements and provide warm arctic gear to keep you comfortable. Our boat offers a true Arctic experience!
If you are a photographer, Steven Kazlowski is the only boat captain who is also a professional wildlife photographer. He wants to seize upon the best photographic opportunities for participants.
Additional Boating Hours: Beyond a half day or full day, additional boating hours may be possible and are charged at the above hourly rate per hour per person. If you need to do fewer hours than our trips are scheduled for, please contact us.
Private Groups: Our Kaktovik polar bear boat tour is available for private groups. We charge a full boat rate based on 6 people. You can have up to 6 people in your group. Please contact us for more information.
What people are saying about Akook Arctic Adventures:
“Truly the best Polar Bear Tour company in Kaktovik. Our boat left on time, warm gear was offered. The crew, Jack & Steve, had an abundance of Polar Bear information and were eager to answer our questions. We were taken to several different areas to ensure the best possible Polar Bear viewing. Thank you for the memories.”

These guys were professional. They treated me right and showed best practices with the bears to prevent them from altering their behavior. Great job guys!
