Get up close and personal with British Columbia’s grizzly bears on an intimate and immersive wildlife watching experience. Join First Nation guides on a tour through the awe-inspiring waterways of their people’s traditional territories.
Join with us to reconnect with nature and learn about First Nations culture in an all-in-one experience that combines respectful wildlife viewing with a sustainable tour through the super natural scenery of northern Vancouver Island and coastal mainland BC.
Low volume tours take a maximum of twelve guests on authentic adventures through the natural habitat of Western Canada’s grizzly bears. Pacific white-sided dolphins dance alongside the bow of our boat, Sea Wolf, as we make the one hour and 45 minute journey from Port McNeill or the First Nations’ village of Alert Bay into the beautiful territory of the Musg̱a̱makw Dzawada̱’enux̱w. Eagles soar overhead and wolves roam the shell-strewn beaches where ancient villages were once occupied by our people. Enjoy a continental breakfast as we navigate waters favoured by migrating orcas, and listen to your guide’s Indigenous interpretation of local landscapes. After lunch, our traditionally trained guides chart us past old village sites, the birthplace of our ancestors, in the Broughton Archipelago.
