03 Day Knight Inlet Bear Viewing
WLV#01 Knight Inlet Bear Viewing
Overview: Situated 156 miles north-west of Vancouver, Knights Inlet is a 95 mile long fiord that is only accessible by floatplane. Within this pristine wilderness is the native habitat of the Grizzly Bear. Bears in the spring and summer are viewed from a boat with cover so participants with camera gear will stay dry. In the Fall these giant bears go fishing for the spawning salmon that are making their way to the spawning grounds along a man-made salmon enhancement stream. Guests on the fall package are able to view the Grizzly Bears as they feed on the salmon, from the comfort and safety of special bear viewing platforms, which are approximately 30 feet away from the bears. This comfortable floating lodge is made up of a main lodge and cabins with private bathrooms and is moored in the sheltered bay next to Glendale River. There is also an outdoor hot tub on the deck, a steam room, lounge and dining area.

Grizzly Observation Spring Season is highlighted by the presence of up to 15 different grizzly bears and 5 different black bears, feeding on sedge grasses, mussels and barnacles along the cove's shoreline and in the estuary. Fresh from hibernation, this season offers a wonderful opportunity to see newborn cubs as they first venture out with their mother into the natural world. Our spring viewing is done from boats, and allows you to get remarkably close to some of these wonderful animals at eye level without disturbing them. The spring season offers some of the year's best photographic opportunities, with the bears moving about in a lush green environment with spectacular backdrops.

Grizzly Observation Early Summer program continues on the water as well, but moves to the logging roads and to the viewing platforms along the river whenever the opportunity to view bears in those areas arises. This season often has the best weather and is the most relaxing, offering you the chance to view the bears from a small group (the summer program also offers some of the year's best whale watching opportunities).

Grizzly Observation Fall Season begins in late August, as hundreds of thousands of pink salmon begin surging their way up the Inlet into the Glendale River, attracting dozens of grizzlies who converge on the spawning channels to fatten their already burgeoning bodies in preparation for the coming winter.
Campbell River - Knight Inlet
Early morning floatplane departure from Campbell River to Knight Inlet. Glendale Cove in Knight Inlet is home to one of the largest concentrations of grizzly (brown) bears in British Columbia. It is not uncommon for up to 40 bears to be within a few miles of the lodge during the peak fall season when the salmon are running up the Glendale River. The spectacle is as incredible as it sounds and has to be experienced in person to really appreciate it. Guests embark on their adventure from the lodge, traveling across the cove by boat and then riding a small bus along an old-time logging road through lush northern rain forest to the spawning channels. It is not uncommon to see 10-15 bears on the river and the channels at a time. Photographic opportunities abound as 5 different viewing platforms, in 3 different areas, have been specially constructed to provide a safe and comfortable viewing base to work from.
