The grizzly bear population of the viewing area in Knight Inlet is very healthy and has been growing over the years. Our lodge, Grizzly Bear Lodge, is located 40 km (26 m) from the main viewing river in Knight Inlet. Six years ago a grizzly bear in the area of the lodge was unheard of and now there are grizzlies on the lodge’s island several times a year. It is a small island so the bears come and go within a day but are frequently seen in the area. This bear was seen in the spring in a small bay not for from Minstrel Island on one of the evening black bear tours.
