Grizzly Expedition Tour

Bear page Final

Available from August 20 until October 15

Departure time 09:30 am

Meeting time is 30 minutes prior to departure.

Travel in our comfortable and covered boat to Bute Inlet, to experience the best Grizzly bear expedition in British Columbia, guided by Marine Biology specialist Jos Krynen.

On land, we will board a comfortable passenger bus to reach amazing viewing platforms so that we can safely view grizzly bears in their natural habitat.

The majestic bald eagles are the first to spot the salmon as they make their way up the inlet to their spawning grounds. As the eagle’s feed, local grizzlies are drawn to the river by the smell of fish. Wild bears from other areas follow their noses to Bute Inlet, traversing mountain passes and swimming the waters. During our bear seasons, we have an average bear populating of around 40 different bears.

Guides from the Homalco First Nations will tour us through their bear stands and we will see the Grizzlies fattening up for the winter. During our lunch, Jos will explain in detail about the life of a bear, supported by pictures and a replica bear skull.

On our journey, we will also have the opportunity to view black bears, wolves, deer, killer whales, humpback, gray, and minke whales as well as Pacific white-sided dolphins, porpoise, seals and Stellar sea-lions in their natural environment. This is a trip you won’t want to miss.

  • Grizzly Guarantee Program!
  • Lunch, drinks and snacks, allergy and dietary restrictions accommodated

Be aware:

Please understand that when we view wildlife and whales, we are guests and must follow a strict set of viewing guidelines in order to protect and respect their natural habitat. Yes, sometimes the whales do get close due to their behavior, but we never get close on purpose. In Canada, we cannot approach within 100 meters (110 yards).
For more information, take a look at our rules and guideline page.

Our Tours


Eagle Eye Adventures is involved in helping scientists track the location and progress of animals in our area. Not only do we educate our guests, but we take high definition photos of the animals to share with our guests and with the scientists studying these creatures. We help keep track of the animals and their progress and maintain catalogs to document feeding habits, location, health, and reproduction.


Each year we support a different project, and through your generous donation, we help educate others and assist scientists in their research. We share this knowledge through trade shows, special events, websites and speaking opportunities.
