    • Princess Royal Island, British Columbia, Canada
    Thursday - Sep 7, 2023
    • Gilttoyees Inlet, British Columbia, Canada
    Over the course of the next four days, we will cruise far into the fjords and deep valleys that carve into the Coast Range looking for black and grizzly bears. We will be accompanied by a cultural interpreter who will share local Indigenous knowledge, culture, and practice, offering unparalleled insights. We will cruise the eastern coast of Princess Royal Island in search of this elusive bear. It is believed that between 10 to 20 percent of bears in this region are born with the recessive gene that causes the white fur; fewer than 400 are estimated to exist. British Columbia has one of the highest proportions of protected land of any jurisdiction in the world. Almost 15 percent of the land is protected, with a wide range of provincial parks, national parks, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We will go ashore and explore several remote locations where few people venture. Discover hidden gems by Zodiac and kayak, and navigate the tidal narrows to the backs of bays while constantly scanning for bears along the rocky shoreline and meadows such as Gilttoyees Inlet. (B.L.D); Please note: Cultural interpreter dependent on availability. ...

    • Lowe Inlet Marine Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada
    Sail alongside pods of killer whales and see foraging brown bears as we sail north through the narrow Grenville Channel between Pitt Island and the mainland, a dramatic navigational experience. Not only does the channel narrow to less than a quarter of a mile across, but a slight bend in the passage makes the waterway seem to disappear into the hills ahead and behind the ship. Here, we will drop our Zodiacs and kayaks to explore the salmon run at Verney Falls in Lowe Inlet Marine Provincial Park on our way to Prince Rupert. (B,L,D) ...
