Jul 1, 2015 - Khutzeymateen

After breakfast we packed our belongings and started on our way to meet the float plane. To our delight we saw a humpback whale our first for the Khutzeymateen, what a great ending for a great trip. We arrived back in Prince Rupert where we enjoyed the local Canada Day Festival. In the evening at 11:15 p.m. we went down to the Bay too watched the evening fireworks.

On our morning trip we spotted Blondie digging clams on the shore and a bear called Hambone who was the first bear I had seen three years ago on my first trip. We did not see the boar today but in the afternoon we did find the mother and cub where we left them the previous day. The cub is still staying very close to its mother and both are very alert to sounds and scents. This was our last trip into the Khutzeymateen for this trip.

On our afternoon trip we did spot the mother and surviving cub in the same general area where we had lost them. They both seem to be in great shape and the cub was staying very close to mom. When we first spotted...

Jun 15, 2011 - Prince Rupert, Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary

We started our day at nearby bay following a lead from our campground host. The bay was a very picturesque location, but we saw no wolves. We had scheduled a tour of the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary for 8:00 AM. Our tour boat was a Catamaran that took us 45 miles into the Sanctuary. The trip was about 2 hrs long and provided opportunities to see Seals and other marine life. Unfortunately we did not see any whales. In the Sanctuary we saw two grizzly bears. One bear was visible for a very short time period and at a great distance....
