We visited the Klahoose Coastal Adventures grizzly viewing tour via the Campbell River Whale Watching boat and I highly recommend both! Our guide, Stuart, met us at the top of Toba inlet for a short bus ride and 3 hour grizzly viewing adventure. He was both humorous and knowledgeable. I loved that his father had lived in the area at one time and that he had been guiding for about a decade.
We saw numerous grizzly bears in our time up Toba Inlet and Stuart added to our experience with his own stories of bear encounters and photos. He seemed extremely apologetic to have to drag us away from amazing bear watching of 2 grizzlies when he knew another tour group was waiting for him.
I highly recommend booking a tour that uses the Klahoose Nation and Stuart.

Campbell River Whale Watching made the trip amazing! If I rated just the Klahoose Coastal Adventures, I think I’d rate it about a 3. The facilities at the dock are ok, but we couldn’t even eat lunch without being attacked by wasps!! No wasp traps were in the vicinity. The outhouses needed toilet paper. The bus was ok. The guide stood in the door, holding on the whole time. I felt she should’ve sat down. The door of the bus kept opening a little, turning on the above lighting.
But, Campbell River Whale Watching went above and beyond to make this trip spectacular!!!! We got back over an hour and a half late because we were watching orcas, dolphins, and more!!!

I was so excited to take this tour, a very profound experience. I am fascinated by grizzly bears, we were so close to a huge wild animal with no bars or barriers. It was thrilling and yet I felt quite safe with our guides Leon and Roger. They were very alert and knowledgeable of grizzly bears.
We had a good boat trip up the inlet and arrived at the logging camp. So remote! Then we went by bus up the river to the viewing stations. The first bear we saw walked right past us and was actually only a few feet away, but below. We were lucky to see “Scarface”, who startled a younger bear away from it’s salmon. We watched them and then left for another station where we startled a mother with 2 - 2 or 3 year old cubs. We watched them for a while while they wandered away.
We returned for a light lunch on the dock and then got back in the boat for the ride home past the gorgeous waterfall. On the second day we stopped there for a jump in the ocean which was also a thrill. Cold but not horrible. The weather was 32 degrees and sunny, so it was perfect. On the way back we looked at pictographs and then we saw a mother humpback with her calf. They were there both days, so it was wonderful.

The tour was well organized. We were kept safe by watchful staff. There were many grizzly bear sightings. They gave a good amount of time at each covered watch tower to observe and take pictures before moving on to the next sighting. Even with being outside, for extra protection from COVID we kept our masks on at their requests, ensuring a strong measure of safety. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

I have done a grizzly tour each year for the last few years, but this was my first time for the Toba Inlet grizzly tour. Stuart was our Klahoose guide and he did a great job finding bears for us to view and answering questions from guests. Toba Inlet is beautiful and the 6 grizzlies we saw (or possibly the same few bears in multiple locations lol) were stunning, healthy bears. Definitely recommend this tour!

Our group had a wonderful day watching the grizzlies in a very nice setting. The raised platforms that we used made it easy to observe these magnificent creatures in safety for them and us. Thanks to our guides for a great day.

This was a wonderful day trip with a 2hr boat ride through the beautiful coastal waters to Klahoose to see the grizzlies which was just fabulous. The scenery is exceptional and the weather was perfect. Steve, our captain on the boat took a different route back hoping to view more bears and whales. Highly recommended

Amazing day. We saw wolves swimming in the ocean, humpback, grizzlies as close as 7 feet away and orca! Couldn't have asked for more.
Tour guide really wanted to ensure we saw everything and stayed out longer until we finally spotted orca! Can't say enough good things about the company and the day.

Lovely day with the grizzlies. Our guide was knowledgeable and patient. Because of covid lunch set up was different from former buffet style. Bag lunch but unfortunately a wasp problem and no covid seating made lunch a bit rushed and difficult.
