ACTIVITY

Kynoch Adventure Tours - Bear-Watching Tour

Bella Coola, BC

DETAILS

Watch grizzly and black bears in their natural habitat as you float down the beautiful Atnarko River and Bella Coola River in the Great Bear Rainforest from the safety of a raft or boat on a four-to-five hour informative and awe-inspiring tour.

Highlights:

  • Watch bears swimming, relaxing, playing and catching spawning salmon.
  • Learn about bear behaviour, feeding habits, hibernation and ecology.
  • The raft or dory allows you to see bears from river level, so you feel like you’re actually in the water with the bears.
  • Learn about the life cycle of salmon and their relationship with the local ecosystem.

Your Kynoch Adventures Bear-Watching tour guide on this unforgettable adventure will be a knowledgeable biologist or naturalist from the Bella Coola Valley.
