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.
