Full description
Journey to the Orford River Valley aboard a comfortable, modern, high speed covered vessel. Enjoy the spectacular scenery on the way to Bute Inlet and the Orford River, renowned as one of the best places to observe Grizzly Bears in the wild. Bring your camera as the specially designed viewing platforms provide ideal photo opportunities. The Orford River offers some of the best Grizzly Bear viewing on the west coast. We will travel 2 hours, by boat, through the Discovery Islands searching for marine wildlife and whales along the way. We offer the longest tour in Campbell River, ensuring there is plenty of time for viewing wildlife on the water as well! When we arrive, we will be met by the Homalco First Nation guides and transfer to our van. After a short orientation, we will drive to the bear viewing platforms. From our perch in the viewing towers, situated above the salmon spawning channel, you will have an unobstructed view of Grizzly Bears as they roam the river banks.
