Your first evening at Grizzly Bear Lodge normally involes an hour plus boat ride to find black bears. This is after you have been shown your rooms, eaten fresh caught crabs or prawns, had a talk about the lodges night light because we are on a generator etc. The black bears are often the hardest wildlife to find as the first requirement is a low tide so there will be a beach and even with a low tide if there are an abundance of berries (black berries, huckle berries, salmon berries, thimble berries, salal berries …) they do not come to the beach. Often the black bears are viewed on the tours to find whales or while on the trip up Knight Inlet to view the grizzly bears.
Peder and Ann, just so you know, Angus has informed me that the humpback that is tail slapping is called “Lucky”. If it was my photo with my point and shoot Pentax I would say that it was a lucky photo but from the number of great photos that you have sent us I know that there was a lot of skill involved. This type of behaviour from the humpback whales while we are on a whale watching tour has become much more common over the past few years but capturing such a good photo is still rare.
