Bella Coola Valley Grizzly Bear Tours (Other)

 

From mid August into October dozens of grizzly bears congregate in the company of bald eagles and black bears to feed on spawning salmon throughout the Bella Coola Valley.

Our guided Grizzly bear watching trips in river drift boats and rafts provide unique opportunities to see these animals from the river while they feed and fish for salmon on the rivers edge. Grizzly bear watching extraordinaire!

The Bella Coola River is formed at the confluence of the Atnarko River, near the western boundary of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, providing a natural transit route to bisect the Bella Coola Valley's diverse ecosystems. For a period of a few weeks in August and September, grizzly bears congregate along the river banks, stalking the Pacific salmon that will supply their energy and fat reserves for their dormant winter period. These majestic Grizzly bears are often seen on our late summer and fall trips!

Our Grizzly Bear Watching & Wildlife Viewing Trips encompass both rivers as we drift in comfortable rigid bottom dories or expedition rafts in the great bear rainforest. Silently floating down the river, we have the opportunity to observe British Columbia's wildlife in pristine habitat without disrupting the animal's natural behavior. Unlike platform viewing, our tours are at river level, giving you a sense of  being in the wilderness with the animals you are watching.

Join professional river guides and biologists for a memorable half or full day drift on one of these classic rivers of Canada, then return to comfortable lodging and accommodations at Coast Mountain Lodge.

Other Wildlife Viewing Opportunities From May through September numerous birds, including eagles, waterfowl, kingfishers, merlin, heron and songbirds congregate in the biologically diverse riparian areas adjacent to Bella Coola Valley's rivers and streams, flourishing in the lush coastal temperate rain forest of Canada's West Coast. Small mammals including otter, mink, fox, beaver and deer are also commonly seen. Excursions or hiking tours to the alpine often result in seeing deer, mountain goats, marmot or bears. Black bears are active throughout most of the summer and fall throughout the Bella Coola Valley and chances of seeing single bears or family groups is favorable on any trip! Guidelines for Sustainability Coast Mountain Lodge and Kynoch Adventures have worked in cooperation with BC Parks and other tour operators in the region to implement a series of wildlife viewing protocols that provide animals the space they need for uninterrupted behaviour and reducing possibilities of humans negatively affecting animals in a tour environment.

Holly and Fraser (your hosts at Coast Mountain Lodge) and Kynoch West Coast Adventures' founders and primary guides are professional environmental biologists, having worked in wilderness areas completing fish and wildlife research and ecological projects throughout British Columbia, Canada, and have an intimate respect for wildlife and the ecology of the region.
