We are normally back to the float for a picnic lunch around 1:00 but that may vary depending on the tide. If the high tide is later in the morning then we have an earlier lunch and return to the skiff do we can go up the river. If the guest have had enough of the grizzly bears and lunch we start to head down Knight Inlet for the forty kilometer (25 mile) ride back to the lodge on Minstrel Island. The an hour and quarter boat trip may take two or more hours some times due to the afternoon winds and the desire for a comfortable ride but most often because of the side trips to enjoy the scenery of the inlet and to look for more black bears and dolphins. …..tomorrow starts a Whale watching safari.
Conservation of Energy
I posted a photo on August 26th of a grizzly bear and a deer that were in knee deep water and said: The chance of a bear catching deer is so low it is not worth wasting the energy trying. As proof of that statement here is a grizzly and deer almost side-by-side on dry land and still the grizzly has no interest.Visit our Blog
