Yesterday’s post was a black bear on a whale watching tour while today’s is a grizzly bear on an evening black bear tour. On your first evening in the lodge we go for an hour or so boat ride looking for black bears and other wildlife. I remember this trip as it was the longest evening black bear tour that lasted two and half hours (we did get back before dark but just). We found a mother grizzly and two cubs on the beach and we followed them for over an hour as they slowly made their way along the beach turning over rocks and at time stopping to berries and eat grass above the high tide mark. Our tours do not normally have a tight schedule if we find something interesting we watch.

A rising tide in Knight Inlet’s Glendale River estuary provides an opportunity for sibling grizzly bears to play. After leaving their mother juvenile bears may spend two of three years together until they reach sexual maturity at age six or seven. This is a break from spending the morning turning over rocks and looking for protein rich food now that the tide has risen…. more tomorrow
