Every tour is a black bear tour. The first evening in the lodge there is a tour to familiarize guests with the boats and guides and to look for wildlife in particular black bears. But every trip leaving the lodge to look for grizzly bears, orcas, humpback whales or to the wild river on the extra day in camp we look along the shore for feeding black bears. If you have a decent camera you will get some good photos. The above photo gives you some perspective of how close we approach a feeding bear showing the boat top over the windshield in the lower corner. The camera a small ten times optic zoom Pentax with no zoom used.
