Wildlife watching tours for black bears, whales, sea otters and more from a lodge on Vancouver Island


View bears, whales, bald eagles and more on this wildlife watching tour from a remote lodge on the west coast of Vancouver Island.  This area offers some of the best black bear viewing opportunities in British Columbia, as well as sea otters and humpack whale viewing.  

On the marine tours you may see humpback whales, sea otters, sea lions, seals, bald eagles and a variety of marine birds and black bears on the beach. 

This lodge has the best bear viewing stand in British Columbia. From late September to mid October is a great time to view black bears on Vancouver Island as the bears migrate down to local river's to fish for spawning salmon.

The waters surrounding Nootka Island, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC are a summer home to several species of whales including Humpback Whales, Grey whales and killer whales. Some of the best whale watching opportunities are in September and October when the giant Humpback Whales come into Esperanza Inlet and Tahsis inlets to feed and are often only a few minutes boat ride from the dock. Just imagine drifting in the boat on a quiet morning and the only sound you hear is the puff of feeding Humpback.

The Esperanza Inlet is home to hundreds of sea otters. Here the sea otters are frequently seen in large family groups called rafts or in smaller family units. It is always a pleasure to watch these playful animals as they break open clams or mussel's on their chest using a rock or just lazing about, floating on their backs soaking up the sun.

The lodge is situated on the banks of the Zeballos River where the Zeballos River meets Zeballos Inlet and offers guests first class accommodation with all of the comforts and amenities of home. With spectacular views of the river to sea and the surrounding mountains, the lodge is the perfect place to relax and experience the spectacular West coast scenery after a great day of wildlife viewing. The lodge is also located only minutes by walking from boat and floatplane docks, local stores, pub, local museum and three different nature walks ranging in length from 20 minutes in length to several hours.
