This is my top recommendation for the North Vancouver Island area. My wife and I absolutely loved the experience, and we plan to take more trips with them. The trip was easy to schedule (reservation was by email) and we checked in the evening before.
The morning started off foggy, but it cleared on the way to Glendale Cove. Our guides reviewed the itinerary and viewing guidelines with us. During the ride through the inlet, we encountered a small pod of white-sided dolphins.
When we arrived at the floating docks, we switched vessels and they transported us into the estuary. During our time here, we spotted eight grizzly bears (including two mothers with two cubs each) and countless bald eagles. The group was very happy with outcome.
Afterwards, we had lunch at the floating dock and departed. Our guide took us to Glacier Bay, where we viewed a beautiful waterfall and stopped by another salmon run frequented by grizzlies.
On the ride back to Telegraph Cove, the guides provided great narratives on the different wildlife and ecosystems in the area. Overall, the staff was very accommodating and enthusiastic about viewing the wildlife in a safe and respectful manner. The tour was by far our greatest highlight to our visit to North Vancouver Island. We will definitely return to take another tour with them.
