Grizzly with cubs

Grizzly Bear and cubs

Early July and Bella is with last year cubs in the Glendale River estuary. This river is located an hour and fifteen-minute boat ride up Knight Inlet from Grizzly Bear Lodge. Once we arrive at the river we transfer to a 5.5 meter (yard) skiff so we can quietly approach the grizzlies bears in the shallow water. The quiet part is your guide in the water pulling the skiff. Providing we stay within the grizzlies comfort zone there is no problem and the bears ignore our intrusion. The problem tends to be that our guests comfort zone seems to be larger than the grizzlies comfort zone and I am often encouraged to move back.
