They were not paying attention because there were two humpback whales of the stern. And one was closer than the one from the front but I missed the tail again. I did get the photo I wanted one that shows a guest getting a close up of the whale activity we frequently experience on your marine wildlife trips. It in not uncommon to see a dozen or more humpbacks on a day trip from Grizzly Bear Lodge and when we stop for lunch and drift in an area where the whales are feeding it can get very interesting.
Grizzly bear watching prior to August 25th is along the shore of Knight Inlet, the Glendale River estuary and in the Glendale River. On these tours your are at eye level with the bears as they forage on the beach often with first year cubs. These cubs are may be only five months old and are much smaller than those in the previous day’s posting. But even at that age the cubs learn by copying their mother. This is an early season photo as you can see the fur that was rubbed of in the den has not had time to regrow.
