Upon arriving at the head of the Bute Inlet, you will be greeted by our Homalco First Nations Adventure Guides. Here you will receive a traditional Salish Greeting and a short orientation.


From here, bus transport will take you up through the Toba Valley to find 1 of 6 viewing platforms! Here you see the salmon returning to spawn, filling every pool. This allows the Grizzlies to gorge on fresh fish for several months in preparation for their long winter hibernation. We will spend 3 hours quietly observing the mighty Grizzly in their natural habitat. While observing the bears, you may see other animals such as Elk, Deer, Wolves, Cougars, Black Bear and many birds throughout the valley! Don't forget your camera!

After experiencing wild Grizzly Bears in their natural habitat, the tour group will return to the dock for the journey back to Campbell River! Along the way, there will again be ample opportunities to view the beautiful West Coast scenery and wildlife!

We provide a healthy lunch, so you don't have to! If you have dietary restrictions, please contact our office.
