The spring / summer grizzly bear viewing season is from late May until August 24th. After August 24th the grizzly bear tours are permitted by the Canadian Department of Fish and Game to travel the short fifteen-minute van ride to the viewing platforms on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River. Prior to the 24th all viewing takes place on the shore of Knight Inlet and Glendale Cove. The spawning salmon arrive in mid-August and are given several weeks to make their way up the river and for the bears to settle into the area of the spawning channel before bear viewers are permitted in the area… more tomorrow
