Two of us went and we had a really difficult time booking this tour. We wanted to go, were willing to put money down but due to minimum numbers (I think it was 4 or 5 per boat) they weren't sure if there'd be space...More

Dear Fraser, Thank you for your respect for wildlife and Grizzly Bears especially - it is one of the highest pleasures available to us to be with you on the boat if you share your environment and "your" Grizzlys with us - Thank you ☺👍

We went on the bear drifting trip and we had a great time. Professional service, lots of fun and beautiful. I would recommend anyone who comes to Bella Coola should do it.

Absolutely wonderful. The guide knew his stuff and was able to tell us lots about the river system, animals and history. Would go again tomorrow.

Floating the river and Bear Watching with a knowledgeable guide was very relaxing. Bears were still out even though the off season had started.

We were in Bella Coola in mid-September, with a huge salmon run. Ironically, that makes it a bit tougher for bear viewing, as the bears have so many places to choose to eat. Fortunately for us, the day we went on the river with Fraser,...More

Fortunate enough to get on a tour with Fraser and Jim in early September. We booked in the morning and obviously Fraser doesn't do these well as he was as grumpy as a grizzly himself! Thankfully he mellowed during the day and proved to be...More
