Check Availability


Cruise along the calm and pristine waters of Barkley Sound in search of black bears foraging for food in this untouched wilderness. Observe mother bears and their cubs as they search the beach at low tide, scrounging for food along the rocky shore.

Step aboard a 29-foot (9 m) Zodiac vessel for a comfortable, open-air ride over the waves or a 40-foot (12 m) covered cruiser. Watch black bears in the natural habitat as these majestic creatures roam the shores in hunt of rock crabs—this easy food source is so plentiful, it’s not uncommon to see more than one family of black bears digging among the rocks.

Admire these majestic creatures against the breathtaking backdrop of forested hillsides and snow-topped peaks before your captain returns you to shore.
