On our whale watching safari we try to eat lunch at an interesting location normally in the area of the sea lions or humpback whales in the waters off Telegrahp Cove on Vancouver Island. “There is nothing like French champagne to celebrate these three marvelous days in August, plenty of dolphins, orcas, grizzly, salmons, black bears, seals, great friendship and with particular thanks to our two outstanding guides.” (Note the champagne was brought from France for your picnic lunch in the boat.) Nicole et Jean Martin-Dondoz of Marseille France provide pictures and comments.
The grizzly bear tours from Grizzly Bear Lodge prior to August 25th are to the area of Knight Inlet’s Glendale Cove. After and hour and fifteen minute boat ride we transfer to a 5.5 meter (yard) skiff and explore the river estuary and travel up the river as the tide rises. On this day we came around a bend in the river to find three grizzly cubs crossing the river with no mother in sight. You need to know that while in the river your guide in normally pulling the skiff through the water so our approach is very quite and the mother grizzly was not aware of our presence. Tomorrow’s post reveals the mother’s arrival.
