Grizzly Bear Viewing

Grizzly Bear tour Kynoch Adventures Bella Coola BC   Grizzly bear with salmon Bella Coola Atnako River
From August 15 to mid October, join biologists and naturalist guides on a relaxing yet exhilarating float on the Atnarko River in comfortably equipped river rafts on an exploration of salmon spawning areas to watch grizzly bears feeding on migrating Pacific salmon. Trips are offered daily and meet directly in Tweedsmuir Park (at Fisheries Pool Campground) to float the clear waters of the Atnarko River in our professionally equipped river rafts, among the majesty of towering snow-capped coast mountains. Grizzly Bears are the primary animals we will see on these tours, and emphasis on their ecology, habits and life cycles will be explained. Family units of sow grizzly bears and cubs are often seen on these tours, as well as a variety of lone juvenile bears and adults.
Excellent photography opportunities!

On this half day journey expect to see eagles, salmon, bird life and spectacular riverscape scenery of glacier creeks, cascading waterfalls, old growth forest and more. Guided by enthusiastic naturalists and local guides, this tour is a perfect introduction to the ecology of the coastal temperate habitat of the Great Bear Rain Forest, bear habitat of the region, and of course the lifecycle of the keystone species of the area, the Pacific Salmon!
