I was booked on the 26th September for the Grizzly bear viewing trip and was picked up from the dock at Hidden Cove Lodge where we were staying at 7.50am . Theresa and Kyle were our guides for the day , the first half hour was a bit rough but once we got amongst the Islands it was fine . On the 2/ 2 and half hour ride to Knight Inlet we saw Humpback whales and Dolphins and were fed plenty of coffee and snacks to keep us going .
On arrival at Knight inlet we transferred to flat bottomed skiffs to travel up the river , It wasn't long before we were viewing a huge Grizzly and her cub grazing and digging on the riverbank , absolutely beautiful . After watching these two for 20/25 minutes and getting some great photos we moved further up the river . We then stayed near a small island which Theresa told us was a bear hotspot , we didn't have long to wait when a bear came down river and passed by us only 15-20 metres away , this bear was quite playful and grabbed a string of moss and was playing with it in the river . This bear moved onto the island and out of sight , but again it wasn't long before another bear came up the river and appeared only 10 metres in front of us , and stood there for a while giving us great photo opportunities and so exciting to be so close . The bear wandered up the river and then charged through the river and caught a huge salmon which it dragged onto the river bank to eat and luckily I got it all on video . There were also Bald Eagles and Kingfishers flying around us while watching the bears .
After all the excitement we then moved back to the dock for the most fantastic lunch . But the day was not finished ,on the way back we saw more whales and then came upon a huge pod of Dolphins literally hundreds of them absolutely incredible .
Thank you so much Howard , Theresa and Kyle for one of the best days of my life.
