We were doubtful about this trip thinking it seemed rather expensive and we had seen a black bear near Lake Maligne. Then the sun came out and we had the trip of a life time seeing 13 mature bears and cubs feeding at the water side (second highest number of the season). Our guide demonstrated his kills in knowing where to go then taking the launch as close as possible to the shore. I wish I could show others the video snaps rather than this still photo. Trips are taken out at low tide so check on the tides. Well worth every cent!
