Bears of the Khutzeymateen - Excursion 905
Experience an exciting and safe opportunity to view grizzly and black bears in their summer habitat without intruding on their natural activities. The pristine Khutzeymateen Valley is home to one of the largest concentrations of Grizzly Bears in the world. We will fly 45 km northeast of Prince Rupert over the rugged Coastal Mountains to the sheltered waters of Khutzeymateen Inlet. Our floatplane waits as you set off on a 2 hour boating expedition.
Depending on the time of year, you may witness Grizzly bear mothers encouraging small cubs to hunt at the mouth of Ensheshese Creek or watch as black bears graze on shrubs and wild blueberries in the afternoon light.
Armed with cameras and binoculars, you will explore inside the western border of the protected Khutzeymateen Inlet wilderness in a covered, rigid-hulled inflatable boat. Your veteran host and guide is Greg Palmer, who can identify the grizzlies by sight. Greg takes particular care not to disrupt the bears and as you make quiet observations from the boat, your reward will be intimate scenes of, perhaps, mothers training cubs, or mature bears interacting with other wildlife.
You will enjoy a panoramic flight home where you may see Humpback or Orca Whales and Sea Lions. Bring lots of film. This trip is a photographer’s delight!
