Grizzly bear viewing from our lodge is an hour and quarter boat ride up BC’s Knight Inlet to Glendale Cove. Once in the cove we change into a 5.5 meter (yard) flat bottom skiff that allows us to follow the grizzlies along the shore and up the river. On this day a grizzly bear was taking a short cut across the bay and we were able to get some good photos. Part way down the column on the left of this post is “Pages” and under that “Google Map of Itinerary” if you take the time to follow the link and read the instructions you will have the “Google Earth Map” of our viewing areas.
Over the years it is not uncommon to watch Steller sea lions play with humpback whales but the behaviour exhibited in this picture was new. We were following a pod of dolphins when this sea lion came up on the other side of the boat breaching or porpoising like the dolphins. It was not just a one-time breach rather it followed the boat for at least a kilometer (mile) with continuous breaches. Another marvel of nature that is hard to explain.
