We must have seen 10 bears while on this excursion. Many mama and baby cubs. Seeing them in the wild is so special. They are very used to the boat, and never even lift their heads while the boat is approaching them. This is a great place to visit.

Prince Rupert Adventure Tours to the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary. Absolutely fantastic. Worth every penny. Captain and crew , first rate and very knowledgeable. Beautiful scenery, awesome boat ride. Managed to see 8 grizzlies, including mom and cub. One humpback whale and the eagle show at the end. Amazing trip. If you are planning a bucket list. This is a must. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing day trip sightseeing tour-worth every dollar. The staff was amazing, so friendly and informative. The scenery is amazing and the bear sightings were better than I ever expected. Saw 7 different grizzlies, a humpback whale, eagles and harbour seals. The lunch was simple but good, you can purchase snacks and drinks on board. Bring your camera and binoculars, you won't be disappointed!

The catamaran was custom built for this type of touring. Clean, large, comfy seats. Just cruising up the inside passage was a thrill, especially the Khutzeymateen Inlet; not many boats venture in there. The owner is adamant all tours will see grizzlies, and we did. He tries to get the boat as close as possible to shore for the best viewing. On the way, we saw seals, a little humpback whale (little early in the season to see a bunch), loads of eagles close up. Lunch is provided and all the snacks you want (at a cost), and of course the commentary of the area, native villages, etc. Highly recommend it!!
