British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest is one of the last temperate rainforests in North America. The landscape is incredible and varied; Rugged coastlines give way to winding fiords and towering granite cliffs with cascading waterfalls, protected estuaries and rushing rivers, dense old growth forests and rocky islands with scrubby trees...
We explore the waters of Campania Sound and Whale Channel for humpback whales often seen exhibiting spectacular feeding behaviours like breaching and bubble-net feeding. We expect to see other marine mammals in these nutrient rich waters too - steller sea lions and harbour seals, dall's porpoise and perhaps orca and fin whales. Birds exist here in great numbers and the salmon, a keystone species - return to spawn. These salmon bring the bears to estuaries and spawning rivers providing world us with world class bear viewing opportunities. We see the massive coastal grizzly - often with cubs in tow, black bears and the iconic Spirit Bear or Kermode. We have the rare opportunity to view the spirit bear at our First Nations' favourite bear viewing areas. This small group eco-tour takes place on our 68' motor-sailors from August to October - and they are AMAZING!
