June is our best month for seeing bears. We have only missed once in June, on a day when we had a National Geographic photographer from Holland. Your not a National Geographic photographer are you? In June there is little in the bush for the bears to eat, so they come out to the beach for seafoods. We drift quietly alongside.

Only been in September, we had 2 excellent trips on both occasions the Bears were fishing in abundance, I think you may see bears in June, I would check with the operator Derek for Rip Tides Knights Inlet and Gary for Campbell River I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Hello

I can only re-iterate what other people have said not having been in June. It is a fantastic trip with wonderful guides who are very knowledgeable and despite bad weather we saw ample bears. Definitely not an experience to miss, I would love to go in June to see the contrast with the autumn! Enjoy.

The Bears come down to the river for the salmon which is between end of July until the end of September.You may be lucky to see some in June but they won't be fishing.

Hope you do manage to see some,so wonderful.

We saw 27 last fall --- mothers with their cubs. It was awesome, and I highly recommend going whenever you can. I suspect you will see fewer than that in June but, doesn't matter, the thrill of even seeing a few in the wild is worth it.

I haven't been there in June, but we saw too many to count in late August. This tour operator knows what he's doing. One of the very best experiences of my life, and I've had lots of really good ones.

we have been told that the spring is a good time as the male grizz are out & have been seen romping with the girls, we were told to come before the berries are out,.

we are heading up again before June 20th.

you can also check with the operators, they didn't lead us astray in Sept.

Can't vouch for bears in June, but this is the best bear watching trip we had been on. Couldn't fault it.
