My partner and I have been on a previous grizzly tour in Telegraph Cove - it felt staged and even though we saw bears, we felt the situation a little false. We went out with Gary from Aboriginal Tours - a full boat is only 12 people. Gary offered us the chance to sit in the open at the rear of the boat......we got some amazing landscape photos enroute to Bute Inlet. Upon our arrival we were met by two loacl First Nation gentlemen and initially taken to a platform. No bears at first but one appeared on the river's edge and wandered towards us. We left the platform and under Gary's guidance we all sat on a log in the open as the bear passed in front of us on the other side of the inlet. the second bear was again seen from a standing position near the inlet - we watched a female catch a chum and proceed to eat it some 30 feet from us - a truly amazing experience. There are some that would say 'you only saw 2 bears?' but these are wild animals who are not there to turn up just because the tourists visit!! We watched a beautiful creature in it's own habitat and it beat any BBC wildlife programme!
After leaving Bute Inlet we watched Pacific White Sided Dolphins chase Gary's boat and then stopped for the Sea Lion coloney......this trip is well worth taking....Gary can't guarrentee sightings but his knowledge and persistence means you won't be diappointed.....have faith in him - he has been doing this for a long time! Thank you for a wonderful day.
