My sister in law and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guides gave us lots of opportunities to watch the humpback whales and the dolphins on our way to Knight inlet, then didn't rush us at all when we encountered the grizzlies - 8 in all. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable and even good chefs! The weather even cooperated! What more could anyone want!!

Was to be the highlight of the trip, but wild animals being wild animals the bears did not co-operate. Although the guides tried their hardest we did not come across bears. Lots of other wildlife was spotted but stings a bit with what you pay for the day.

The guides gave us 110% effort to make sure we got up as close as possible to see bears without disturbing them. We saw whales & dolphins enroute to bear site & the guides made sure we had plenty of photo ops! Everything was well done - guides were enthusiastic & knowledgable - it was a fun, safe trip - even snacks & lunch provided were great!

This has been the most exciting day trip I've ever made. You go into Grizzly Bear territory by shallow draft boat pushed by the guys upstream the river and experience a couple of hours close to them. It seems they don't even notice you. We saw at least 9 bears and heard some more moving behind the bushes.
On the way between Telegraph Cove and Knight Inlet we saw Humpback whales, Killer wales and hundreds of dolphins. Every time the boat was stopped for photo opportunities. The late lunch at their boat exchange dock was also of high quality.
Thank you John and James for this beautiful experience.

Wonderful day with two delightful naturalists who explained everything to us in a very presentable way. We saw grizzlies, dolphins, humpback whales and numerous birds. It was a great day and an enjoyable experience
