Having always wanted to get close to grizzlies in the wild and having read the reviews about this trip, we booked our places and then booked our trip to Canada around it. Booking was easy, even by email from the uk. We were not disappointed! The trip was amazing and we spent several hours with the bears. It's a 2 hour boat trip to Bute Inlet, with Gary at the helm who is very knowledgable and takes the time to show us plenty of other wildlife etc along the way. Once we arrived we were made very welcome by Stewie and the team who have an incredible knowledge of the bears and their environment. We spent time in hides watching the bears as well as being able to watch from the river bed as they fished for salmon a short distance away. The guides are very experienced and we always felt safe, and came away wih superb photographs and wonderful memories of our time up close and personal with the grizzlies! There were never any time pressures and we enjoyed a full day's trip, around 10 hours. We also saw seals, sea lions, and around 200 dolphins chasing our boat! This truly was the trip of a lifetime and we can't recommend it highly enough. Would love to go back one day and do it gain!
