A Wary Grizzly Bear

Grizzly bear river walker

The first half of the viewing season from Grizzly Bear Lodge is spent in the Glendale River and it’s estuary. We travel up Knight Inlet in the morning for about an hour and fifteen minutes and tie to a float in the mouth of the river and transfer to a smaller 5.5 meter (yard) skiff to travel up the river. The river is a pathway for the bears as they are either coming to the estuary for the sedge grass and to turn over rock in search of other protein or returning to high ground as the tide rises. As the tide rises your guide is in the water slowly pulling the skiff up river were we meet bears either coming or going.
