Your day for grizzly bear watching you leave the lodge by 8:00 in the morning with a picnic lunch for a run up BC’s Knight Inlet to the grizzly bear viewing area of Glendale Cove. We use a boat made by Double Eagle, which means a lot to the guides as they are likely the best made boat on the BC coast. We share the tie up with a company from Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island. It is nice to have friends around when you are in a remote area. A pause and a picture break on the floating dock before heading to the viewing stands. Photos byBruce & Carole Cripps 3-11
From our position in the viewing stands it was not hard to determine why the cubs were searching. Mother was the goal but more important is the food that they hope she will share. Often the mothers will fish in the deep water because they can pick up dead salmon off the bottom with little effort or waste of calories and also it is harder for the cubs to fight for the salmon while they are swimming.
