Photograph grizzly bears, black bears, whales and more on this wildlife watching safari from a remote lodge in Knight Inlet, BC. Knight Inlet is known as the premier grizzly viewing area of western North America.
This lodge offers grizzly tours and grizzly bear watching from viewing stands and wildlife tours for grizzly bears, killer whales (orca) humpback whales, dolphins, stellar seals, sea lions, black bears and eagles. The grizzly bear tours are conducted on Canada's famous natural fjord and on the salmon rivers that flow into Knight Inlet. One can expect to get very close and almost personal with Grizzly bears, Sea Lions, Seals, Humpback Whales, Orcas, Eagles and Black Bears, all from safe viewing situations. The lodge is located on British Columbia's mainland coast, northeast of town of Campbell River and is part of the Great Bear Rainforest.
On a typical day you rise early. After coffee and breakfast you are off to your boat with your guide. Travel the shores of Knight Inlet, a spectacular scenic fjord, to Glendale Cove where you ride our Grizzly Bus (Aug 25-Oct 15) up to the salmon spawning channel. Here you can photograph huge Grizzly Bears as they feed on these fish using dives, scoops and plunges to trap their prey. On route you can view White-sided Dolphins playing in the boats wake. Your next day will start early and you will head off to Johnston Strait to observe pods of these magnificent mammals and with a little luck you'll get to see their cousins, the Minke and Humpback whales. You will also see bald eagles, sea lions, seals and black bears.
This lodge is small and intimate, assuring personal service and attention to your needs and expectations. It only accommodate 8 to 10 guests at a time. The remote environment, climate, the spawning rivers that flow into Knight Inlet and the natural protection provided by the mountains, forest and the Knight Inlet Fjord, cause the area to attract and concentrate the most diverse and abundant wildlife available in North America.
