This full-day Grizzly Bear expedition is a trip of a lifetime, that takes you deep in the wilds of British Columbia. Discovery Marine Safaris were one of the original eco tour companies to partner with Homalco Wildlife Tours and to offer Campbell River based bear tours to Bute Inlet and the Orford Valley. This area marks the southern reaches of the Great Bear Rainforest. And is renowned as one of the best places to see Grizzly Bears in their natural habitat. Can you picture yourself crossing paths with a Grizzly?
Your full day Grizzly Bear expedition starts with a 2.5 hour adventure by boat. Cruise through spectacular scenery before we reach Bute Inlet and the Orford Valley on BC’s rugged mainland coast. A friendly welcome awaits you.

Highlight of the holiday!
Were fortunate enough to be on this extremely well organised trip to the Bute Inlet on 12th September. Friendly and helpful Captain and crew and excellent guides at the Homalco Reserve. We were lucky enough to see 14 grizzlies. A totally awesome experience – including 2 cubs fighting over a salmon which their mother had just caught! I could not rate this trip highly enough and, judging by the other reviews, it is consistently excellent. I am only sorry we did not book on the whale watching excursion as our experience out of Tofino was disappointing. Many thanks for the collection/delivery from April Point..
