Join our biologists and naturalists on a Yellowstone Wildlife Watching Tour
Yellowstone is a huge place with plenty to see! If you are wondering where to see wildlife, join us on a full-day wildlife watching tour in Yellowstone's richest habitats.
Using our expert local ecological knowledge, we'll maximize your chances of seeing the wildlife you're interested in. Although sightings can never be guaranteed, we have extremely high success rates seeing wolves and grizzlies in Yellowstone. Our high quality Swarovski spotting scopes give you the best view of distant wildlife. We provide binoculars for animals in closer proximity, and we keep wildlife safe by avoiding encounters that are too close. But we don’t stop there. We are outdoor educators, and can also help enhance your knowledge of Yellowstone's natural history, ecology, scientific studies, and conservation efforts. As guides, we get excited about all kinds of observations, so let us know if you have a particular interest.
- ● We depart daily at dawn (5:00 to 6:00 am in summer; 7:00 am in winter).
- ● Tour duration is typically 7 to 8 hours, but every day is different, so it’s important to be flexible.
- ● Plenty of high quality scopes and binoculars are provided, so you won't have to share.
- ● Brunch, hot drinks, and water refills are included. Please bring your own water bottle.
- ● Short hikes (or snowshoeing in winter) can be included upon request.
- ● Tours can be adapted to accommodate all ages and abilities. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have specific needs.
To reduce mutual risk of Covid-19 spread and keep everyone safe during our trips, masks will be required at all times if you are inside the vehicle with your guide. In the field, masks are required when you are within 6 feet of your guide or other park visitors. If you would prefer to follow your guide in your own vehicle, we can supply walkie talkies to accommodate.
Please remember to bring clothing layers! It is not uncommon to have 60 degree (F) temperature changes in one day. In the winter, that could mean a change from -20 to +40 degrees (F). In summer, we could start the morning below freezing, and end the day in short sleeves. Be prepared!
Yellowstone has dry, high-elevation climate, where it is difficult to stay hydrated at any time of year. It is important to drink lots of water in this environment.
Park entrance fees are not included. Entrance fees are $20 per person or $35 per family, and are good for one week. Annual passes are also available. Please see Yellowstone's website: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/fees.htm or a park entrance kiosk for more information.
Gratuity is not included.
