So great to hear your Bears of Bute story and that it was the highlight of your visit to Canada. I will make sure Ian and Mike get your message as well. Thank you!
What an amazing experience and all credit to the Homalco First Nation and their outstanding stewardship of this area and its natural resources. Encounters were plentiful and truly spectacular, well worth the effort to get there.

We took this tour on a very wet day with poor visibility and were worried we wouldn’t see any bears. Our fears were soon allayed as in the two hours we were on this tour we were very fortunate to see 13 grizzlies. Such a...More
Christine, isn't it wonderful how even on a wet day in Orford the experience is sublime? Thank you for your comments and joining us in Orford.
This tour was just plain awe inspiring. It takes a couple of hours on a boat from Campbell River, with magnificent scenery all the way. We saw a pod of orcas and some dolphins. The boat crew bent over backwards to take care of us...More

Darren, you are always welcome in Orford! Thank you for your comments and for sharing those fantastic photos!
Fantastic wildlife tour. We saw whales on the boat trip in and back, and non stop bears from the very moment our boat arrived, until it left. Well hosted, and very safety conscious leaders.
Thank you for your comments and for sharing the photos...love the one of the mama and cubs!

I have visited the Orford River grizzlies twice now - once in 2016 and again in 2018. Both trips were absolutely fantastic. The Homalco guides are friendly and informational, happy to pass along their knowledge of the bears, the area, their history and culture. They...More

First of all, love the photos!! The rain does not hold back the bears from splashing and feeding in the river and I'm glad to hear you embraced the rainforest with them. Thank you for writing a review, we do appreciate it! Emote (It is...More
