The float starts 35 minutes up the road at Belargo Bear Watching Platform (see our entry under Tweedsmuir Park). Regardless of whether you hire your own boat or not, you all travel up together. On the river you then join up with boats from Tweedsmuir Lodge. The boat / raft is stable and comfortable We heard Fraser talking a lot... More

We had a great time on our Grizzly tour - it is such a nice, quiet way to float down the river in the beautiful Bella Coola Valley. We were very lucky to see a grizzly, what an opportunity to take pictures of these amazing animals! Thanks for a great trip!

Wanted to give Frasier and his crew a big long overdue thank you for showing my 4 year old daughter her first Grizzly and Cubs. Knyoch Adventure will show you a very intimate side to the Grizzly Bear as you float down the river in one of the most beautiful surroundings. What more could ask for guides with great personalities,... More

When organising our trip to Canada, one of the things we really wanted to do was see grizzly bears in the wild, and Kynoch adventures made that possible. We booked two tours with them, a boat trip down the river and a walking tour. First we went for the boat trip with Jim. We didn't really know what to expect... More

It's all in thier nature. Fraser and Holly are appear to be doing exactly what they should be doing at this point in thier lives. Delivering your eyes to the wonders of the Bella Coola Valley safely and affordably. My only complaint is that there is never enough time in a day to absorb all they know. Geoff

My wife & I went on some trips with Kynoch Adventures while staying in the Bella Coola valley in September 2011. Kynoch arranged for us to take a half day hike with Jeff Bray accompanied by his friendly dog Bindy. We met Jeff at his lodge (Great Bear Chalet, check out the website) and had a great morning hiking around... More
