Totally unforgettable tour with passionate and enthusiastic guides. It was such a privilege to see Grizzlies in the wild taking full advantage of the salmon run - but the interpretation by Homalco guides made the experience even more special. Really loved the insight into Homalco...More
This is a trip I would highly recommend if visiting central British Columbia. We had a forty-five minute boat trip (spectacular) from where we were staying on Sonora Island to the Orford River and the site of the grizzly bear viewing. Our First Nation guides...More
Excellent grizzly bear tour with the Homalco. Travelled to the Bute Inlet with Big Animal Encounters in Campbell River and saw orcas and humpback whales from the boat.

We were lucky to be guided by Conrad and Calvin on this magical bear watching experience. It had been a foul day weather wise, and the rivers we very full, making it difficult for bears to hunt salmon, but the skill of our guides took...More
