We had a wonderful day grizzly bear viewing at the Homalco site. The guides were very friendly and professional. It was all very informative and well-organised. We had some amazing grizzly bear viewings and the overall atmosphere was very positive.
Apart from the bears itself, the country is amazingly beautiful with the river winding through the rain forest with a dramatic backdropping of snow capped mountains.
A wonderful day!

Our Grizzly Adventure with our Homalco guides, Marcellus and William, was an amazing adventure! Getting to see grizzlies in their natural habitats is an experience we'll never forget. Our Homalco guides were VERY respectful of the grizzlies and at the same time were VERY careful to make us humans safe. The viewing towers are well constructed, safe and located in great viewing areas. The buses, bathroom and picnic facilities were clean and comfortable. Marcellus and William were friendly, kind and knowledgeable. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime!

The wife and I spent over 3 hours with the Homalco guides, it was a great day for seeing grizzly bears feeding on salmon. The first viewing area had 5 bears. Next we had a sow with 2 young cubs they look like little stuffed animals. We highly recommend any tour that joins you with this First Nation tour.

What a day ,we were lucky enough to see 18 grizzly bears what an experience. The guides were so informative and and obviously enjoyed being able to share this wonderful experience with the general public.We felt very privileged to be able to view these beautiful animals in their natural surrounds. The boat ride to and from Bute inlet was a great experience too, we saw 2 killer whales, 1 hump back whale, a californian sealion surfing the rapids, porpoises and seals. The day was perfect from the moment we boarded the boat until the moment we arrived back.Would love to do it again.expensive but well worth every penny.
