This small group excursion departs from Port McNeill and heads through the Broughton Archipelago and in to fiords of the mainland in search of grizzly bears. The scenic journey over to the inlets is complemented with a continental breakfast, tea and coffee along with some spectacular scenery – a great way to start the day. Once in Thompson Sound (Xakwikan) you are taken further up the river by a small truck and find a comfortable seating spot by the water’s edge to wait for the grizzlies. Your guide will share traditional First Nation’s stories and you will enjoy lunch here. On the return journey you will look for ancient pictographs and other sites of cultural importance, whilst all the time keeping an eye out for other wildlife such as dolphins an eagles.
