If stay the extra night at our lodge the extra day is a river day spent at a “wild” river on a wilderness tour. Crossing Knight Inlet we travel the length of Thompson Sound to the Kakweikan River and spend a day with The Trapper. Rick has spent a good part of his life on this river and protects it with a passion. Grizzly Bear Lodge is the only lodge in the area with access to this river. The scenery on this part of BC’s mainland in breathtaking and the wildlife viewing provides a reasonable chance of grizzly bear sightings. Bears are often seen below the falls at Rick’s cabin or on the road to the cabin. Seeing a grizzly bear at Rick’s is a different sensation than see one from a protected viewing stand on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River. Maybe that is why Rick always has “Rosemarie” with him. Who is “Rosemarie” that you will have to ask Rick?
Spring grizzly bear viewing from Grizzly Bear Lodge takes place in Glendale Cove a one hour and fifteen minute boat ride up Knight Inlet. The bears spend their day eating the sedge grass in the river estuary and along the shore of the cove. When not eating the grass they are on the beach turning over rock is search of food in this inter-tidal zone. The “food” is high in protein and is made up of crab, clams, barnacles, amphipods and other tiny invertebrates.
