About BC Wildlife & Bear Spotting

We work with a number of expert guides to bring you the best possible wildlife experience in the Great Bear Rainforest.  Entering into the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, our expert guides will take you in search of Spirit bears, grizzlies, eagles, humpback whales, wolves and a variety of other wildlife in their natural habitat. Traveling by boat, you will enter forest canopies and rocky outcroppings via the water channels and river canals, an experience that is truly exhilarating.

Over the duration of your journey, you’ll learn about the local ecosystem, wildlife and history of this unique part of the world, accompanied at all times by a professional guide.  The guides we work with have decades of accumulated knowledge about local wildlife and the surrounding environment they inhabit and will ensure your every question about this magical part of the world is answered during your trip.

In addition to the elusive Spirit Bear and many other kinds of wildlife, the region is also home to many First Nations’ communities.  During your trip, you’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about the heritage of the First Nations’ people and the significance of the local wildlife to their culture and communities.
