Come seek out some of North America’s largest black bears and explore ecological majesty of one the most impressive wildlife corridors on the East Coast: the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. Outer Banks Bear Tours are an incredible and relaxing way to see wildlife close up, get away from the crowds of the beaches, and reconnect with nature in our National Wildlife Refuges. Here, you have the unique opportunity to safely spot bears and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
On this 1.5 hour tour, we will go on a guided hike through the refuge, on Sandy Ridge Wildlife Trail. We will also explore the refuge in our air conditioned van searching for black bears, turkeys, owls, birds, alligators, deer and other native wildlife of the area. Your tour guide will seek out the nooks and crannies where these animals congregate and also talk about the flora and fauna of the tour.
We start our Bear Tours at the Kitty Hawk Kites Whalebone location. Then sit back and relax as our tour guide drives you safely out to the refuge. Don’t miss out on one of our most popular wildlife eco-tours!
