Has a 1,000 pound grizzly crossed YOUR path yet?See WILD and MAJESTIC Grizzlies in their natural habitat, far away from human civilization! Our Grizzly Bear Safari starts with a 2 hour (approx.) boat ride to the Orford Valley, which is located in Bute Inlet on BC's rugged mainland coast. Bute Inlet marks the southern reaches of the Great Bear Rainforest!!
Upon arrival, we’re welcomed by our hosts and partners, the Homalco First Nations. These are the historical lands of the Homalco people and the Orford Valley was the once the site of a hunting and fishing camp!! We are then shuttled by minibus to a series of viewing platforms that are strategically placed throughout the spawning grounds. Watch those wild, beautiful bears chase and catch big salmon to fatten up for hibernation!
These bears are NOT fenced in! This is NOT a National Geographic movie! This is REAL and you’re right there to witness every moment!!
For your convenience we will serve a full picnic style, mid day snack with freshly made sandwiches on freshly baked whole wheat bread (ham & cheese, roast beef, tuna salad, turkey, egg salad or vegetarian), delicious cookies, plus organic coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water included. Still hungry or thirsty? Additional drinks and snacks are available for you to purchase onboard.
To help us reduce garbage, please bring your own refillable water bottle and reusable coffee mug.
