Just when you think the grizzly bears you are viewing do not really know that you are there you get one that looks you right in the eye when caught taking a photo. To put a human touch it would be “A little privacy if you don’t mind.” The bears on the lodge’s tour up Knight Inlet tend to ignore our intrusion into their life. In the spring and summer, while they are feeding on the beach they only acknowledge our presence if we get to close. In the fall in the viewing stands on the Glendale River sudden movement, load noises or a cameras flash left on will get their attention. For the most part the grizzly is aware but chooses to ignore. Guest James O’Donoghue from the UK provided this photo.
Stellar sea lion at rest
Bob and Helen Everson captured a quite moment in the stellar sea lion rookery. A few sea lions are in our viewing area all year however the prime time is spring and fall. The stellar sea lions that migrate between California and Alaska use the waters off the East Coast of Vancouver Island as feeding and resting area on their migratory route. The rookery is normally a hub of noise and activity as sea lions fight for prime real estate in the rookery and the juveniles thrash about in the water. Although there may be an absence of noise I can assure you the same is not for the smell.
