Alright, so we all know (or do know) that you can't fly with bear spray. Some tours - normally those involving boats or the train - don't even allow you to bring bear spray with you, or require that you have it safely tucked away in a backpack or storage container/locker. We've often received DM's asking us where to rent bear spray while visiting, so we decided to just write it down in a list!
We've never personally rented from these companies since we always had our own bear spray, but hope that this list cuts down on the amount of research you need to do and makes your vacation a little bit easier!
If you don't have any luck with these places, try checking out this Facebook Group - where locals and travelers exchange/sell/buy bear spray for really cheap or even free!
Where to Rent Bear Spray
These were the only places we could find that have bear spray rentals, averaging about $10-$20 per day, to buy your own bear spray from Cabelas, Fred Meyers, or other outfitters would normally cost $40-$50!
