Bear Viewing goes hand in hand with Marine Mammal Viewing
In partnership to marine mammal viewing, bear viewing has become an integral component of any local marine tour. Both grizzly and black bears of the coast descend the hillsides to the waters edge during the spring and summer months to eat the new grasses, feed on salmon and forage along the low tide line for the rich abundance of exposed sea life that makes up much of their summer diet.
Many reputable tour companies exist in our area for viewing such animals, with their mandate being one of encouragement for the safety of their patrons and the protection of the beasts. The operator’s priority being the education of the public in regards to the animals themselves in all aspects. The perspective of the tour can be founded on the Aboriginal History or interactions with humans or the impact that human presence on the planet has brought to the animals. Each tour has something implicitly unique to offer.
