  This is last minute (leaving in a week for Alaska) and looks like I will have a day in Haines to do stuff.  Just wondered if anyone knew a good guide there or had advice on photographing the brown bears catching salmon on the Chilkoot River.  I know it can be quite crazy there with people, so any suggestions on how to avoid the circus are greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Ricardo

Check Tom Ganner (https://timenspace.net). We were on a tour (short excursion from the cruise ship) he led and we found him to be enjoyably low-key and knowledgable.

Thanks Jim!


PS.  How was the brown bear photography?

Only one bear that day near Haines but great shooting for eagles. 

We recently had the phenomenal opportunity to spend 3 days at the Brooks Camp in Katmai National Park during the peak salmon run -- at one point a ranger counted over 300 salmon a minute and we counted over 15 bears within sight of the platform by the falls. Unreal. Will try to upload a shot here but still learning this site.
