We recently went on the eco rafting tour and had a very enjoyable rafting/learning experience. Fraser and Holly are very knowledgeable guides who care deeply about the bears and the environment. I would highly recommend anyone who comes to Bella Coola to experience this tour.

We'd travelled a very long way to see the grizzly bears and the tour with Kynoch certainly delivered. It is a really amazing experience to view the bears while drifting downriver in a small boat and Fraser was an excellent guide. We couldn't have hoped...More
