Booked the Bear Raft River Drift with Kynoch. Was in contact with Fraser via email and he was very prompt with his replies and was very helpful to get us on a Raft Drift. We went on the late afternoon and within the first 10mins we saw a bear and we kept seeing them. Fraser knew where they were and was very patient to wait for the bears to come to us. Fraser has a ton of knowledge of bear behaviors, history, stories and community interactions with the bears. He was very educational which was some of the best part of the trip. I really appreciated Frasers respect for the bears and giving them their space and his confidence in being so close to the bears on the river. I had total trust in him navigating us through the river. I highly recommend this company and when I'm back in Bella Coola again I will do the Raft Drift again.

We had a beautiful, well guided, informative float trip down the Atnarko river. We didn’t see any bears because the spawning salmon were alarmingly scarce this fall but the scenery and experience was worth every penny. As with any wildlife adventure you never know what you will see and our adventure didn’t disappoint even without the bears.

We had a great time on the river with Fraser despite not seeing a ton of bears (the salmon are spawning a lot later this year). We went on the float 2 different times - the first time we saw a Mom bear with 2 cubs and followed her for 10 minutes. The second time, we saw a beaver and many eagles. Regardless of wildlife, the river and scenery itself was totally beautiful and worth the price.

Take care - we a Danish couple booked and paid for a trip. Because Canada has closed it's border we are not allow to enter the contra. We asked to get our money back - CAD 289 and got this message: As you likely are aware there is a global pandemic and there are many changes in world travel. As stated very clearly to you at the time of booking your booking fee is non refundable. It will be credited for a period of 2 years until Sept 30 2022 ... the last sentence is very nice when you just have passed 82 years :-)

I regret you feel this way. The text you posted clearly explains that we informed you of unique travel constraints owing to Covid. I personally reached out to you in a variety of emails hoping to accommodate you in 2021 or 2022. This is the same offer to all people affected, so I am not sure why you feel this is unrealistic. You are the only guest to have issues and not wish to take advantage of the 2 year credit. It was all very very clearly described during booking. This was a Global Event far beyond my control. You clearly chose not to accept the terms you agreed to at time of booking. I wish you well. Fraser

Had an amazing morning adventure drifting down the river. Saw a mother bear with three cubs swimming in the river then a juvenille bear on the riverbank. The scenery was incredible.Our guide was knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.
