Alaska. Swimming with grizzly bears

OCTOBER 2013

“White Claws” is definitely our favourite bear. She dives quite frequently and she can stay underwater for around 20 seconds.

2013 was a very good year for salmon and more than a million came to the lake.  Unfortunately, when they all died, the water visibility was reduced to 10 feet maximum and it was almost impossible to film the grizzly bears underwater.
