Jet boat grizzly bear photography tour through the coastal rainforest of British Columbia


This unique adventure Grizzly Bear tour is a must for those looking to photograph Grizzly’s in a variety of absolutely stunning locations.  The first two days of the tour begin with an hour Jet Boat ride to a few different remote coastal estuaries where we stalk the bears from the safety of the boat while exploring the side channels of a sedge grass lined estuary.  We will also have opportunity to explore the rivers by Jet Boating up these beautiful valleys. Guests will be pampered at the magnificent Yellow Cedar Lodge on the banks of the Skeena River for the first three nights as we use this for our base.  The following two nights will be spent at the Khutzeymateen Wilderness Lodge in the heart of a Grizzly Bear sanctuary. It is the only lodge within the conservancy and it offers an opportunity to enjoy all the comforts of home with plenty of room to stretch out and take in the awe-inspiring neighborhood.  

June is prime feeding time for the coastal Grizzly Bears because they have recently emerged from hibernation and are hungry for the succulent sedge grasses that grow along the coastal estuaries. These lush green fields of grasses provide an amazing backdrop for the photographer to capture that perfect image.  The tour will include a variety of guest speakers who will share their expertise and passion for this amazing northwest BC species. 

Highlights include: 
Jet Boating up remote Coastal Rivers 
Experiencing Grizzly Bears in the native habitat 
Learning about bears from local experts 
Float Plane access to the Khutzeymateen 
Exploring a variety rivers, estuaries and locations every day
Amazing accommodation, meals and hospitality
