We went in the middle of September 2023 before embarking on a cruise. The secret is going when the cruise tours aren’t there. On cruise tour days they can have between 7k - 10k visitors in a single day!
You can catch the blue line bus from downtown Sitka for $2.00 single ride or $5.00 day pass. You take the bus to the end of the line and it is a short walk from there. Buses run every our. The bus line website keeps track of the day and the times the ships will dock. Note: If it is busy cruise ship day you may not be able to just walk up and buy a ticket or even catch a bus!
For our visit we were amongst the first of four visitors for the day. The bears were very active and playing with each other. No challenge in seeing them or taking photos. We spent around an hour there. I would go back assuming the conditions were good. If it is going to be packed with tour groups you may come away less than thrilled.

This place may have good intentions but are unable to deliver after 20 plus years of being a "sanctuary". Bears have less than a 1/4 acre surrounded by concrete walls so they cannot see anything but walls and people staring at them.NO trees for them!!! Could have included triple layer plexiglass to the outside for a view. It was dirty-overgrown grass and weeds, dead fish floating in water, food debris, plastic pieces of garbage. Water was filthy. One poor bear paced non stop. The 'enrichment" they claim is not apparent. Looks like all their money went into their new building and stocking gift shop vs making the bear's home a better place. It doesn't take money to keep a place clean.!!! The poor black bears on the outside have a very tiny area too. Compare this to the WONDERFUL bear sanctuary at Grouse Mountain, Vancouver. Worlds apart. This place gets NO STARS!

This place is a wonderful concept and it's great that the orphaned bears have a place to go instead of being euthanized. Going to visit has much to be desired when you arrive at the same time as other bus loads and you are crammed in like sardines and can "bearly" see what you've come to see... the bears. If you can't get close enough to the railing because of the number of people packed around the railings, it's definitely not worth the cost.

Great opportunity to observe black and brown bears close up in a secure/controlled environment. The volunteers provide excellent input and answer questions very well.

This was an amazing place to visit. How great to get to see bears as close as this. Such an amazing experience!
The staff were all amazing, with lots of knowledge about orphaned bears that now call the Fortress their home. They are very well cared for, which is pleasing to know.
I would definitely recommend a visit here to support the work of this amazing place!

The bear sanctuary was impressive. It was great that they can do that for injured and or orphaned bears. The workers were very informative.

I enjoyed seeing the black and brown bears here. There were 6 different bears that I saw. It is so sad that they had to be rescued from the wild. It was a $30 taxi ride from town to get there, and an extremely small area where the bears were. Think of one to two enclosures in a modern Zoo.Wouldn’t want to spend more than 45 minutes here, thus only gave it 4 stars. There wasn’t that much to do (I am from Alberta and have seen bears- so take that into consideration). I would definitely recommend it!

Took a tour from cruise ship to this bear sanctuary. It was a wonderful experience. Lots of bears to see and photograph. Black breast and brown bears were up and moving around in their natural settings. We had a great time here.

The Fortress of the Bear cares for orphaned bear cubs. There were eight bears here when I visited, five coastal brown bears and three black bears. It was interesting to watch them interact with each other. This place is popular so there was a short wait until I was allowed to ascend the ramp to see the bears.
