August 31st - October 15th
For 25 years, Toba Inlet lay dormant, its logging roads abandoned, and the valley left to the whims of nature. Only in recent years have adventurers returned to this breathtaking valley. Just six kilometers up the forestry road lies a pristine turquoise tributary river to the main Toba River. Each fall, this river teems with salmon, drawing Grizzly bears down from the mountains to feast. Klahoose Coastal Adventures aims to offer an intimate experience to a select few guests to witness this captivating fall spectacle.
After a two-hour boat voyage along Toba Inlet, with its towering cliffs and cascading waterfalls, our team of seasoned guides will join forces with the Klahoose First Nation guides. They will extend a warm Coast Salish welcome at the head of the Inlet.
We will transport you up the valley via forestry roads to the bear viewing sites along this river. There are four new bear viewing platforms strategically positioned along the river, granting you the privilege of observing the majestic Toba Inlet Grizzly Bears as they engage in their fall ritual of indulging in the returning salmon.
Small Tour Groups for Habitat Serenity: Our Grizzly bear excursions into the Toba valley are limited to groups of 12 people or fewer, ensuring minimal impact on the bears' habitat. We are all visitors in their domain, and we take great care to respect their environment.
At Eagle Eye Adventures, we are deeply committed to sharing our knowledge and passion with all who visit this remarkable area. Our tour will be led by highly enthusiastic guides, among the finest on the coast, who engage with our guests throughout the journey.
Our Grizzly bear knowledge presentation spans approximately an hour, featuring visual materials that elucidate the development of bears and provide educational insights into these incredible creatures.
Eagle Eye Adventures is committed to ensuring you see Grizzlies. If we do not spot a Grizzly on your tour with us between September 5th and October 1st, we will take you out again at no additional charge, on a stand-by basis, until a sighting occurs. This guarantee is available to full-fare paying Grizzly Bear Expedition clients and is non-transferable.
