You'll have a rare chance to witness the ancient autumn ritual of grizzly bears feasting on spawning salmon in the Orford River in Bute Inlet. The viewing success in the Orford River Valley has been 100%! The bear viewing platforms offer security so you can fully enjoy this view into the lives of these great bears in their natural habitat. The panoramic river views are magnificent. Three hours are spent in the river valley at different bear viewing platforms observing this west coast rainforest landscape and its regal residents, the grizzly bear, fattening up on salmon in preparation for a cold British Columbia winter.
Your specially trained bear viewing guide takes every precaution, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in this epic experience. Guides are licensed and trained to carry firearms in order to ensure guest safety and protection, and they do.
Heated, covered boats take you cruising in comfort! After bear viewing enjoy a box lunch. The Ultimate Grizzly Bear Viewing Adventure is topped off with the cruise back through the glacial-tinged magesty of Bute Inlet and the picturesque Discovery Islands.
