Guests often ask me what a bear does all day. Well for the most part it is quite simple. They eat, then they sleep, then they eat again. Bears often have what are called day beds. These are areas near their food source where they routinely curl up for a nap. These bed areas move as the bears move in search of food. These two sub-adult grizzlies are content to use the overhanging logs for a nap.
Grizzly bear tours from the lodge travel up Knight Inlet to Glendale Cove and the river estuary. Both spring and summer tours take advantage of the tidal change to move up and down the river. We use an eighteen-foot flat bottom skiff that allows us to move up and down the river in very shallow water. The riverbanks and estuary are covered with a very protein rich sedge grass that the grizzlies graze. They have become accustomed to our presence and provide interesting photos as they observe us.
