The Bears of Knight Inlet Lodge Grizzly Bear Watching in British Columbia, Canada
Knight Inlet Lodge - THE place to see grizzly bears in their natural habitat.
View the bears differently in the different seasons. In the spring, you set out in boats to get close to the shore (50 metres) to give you a good view of the bears feeding remaining far enough away as to not disturb them. The early summer programme continues on the water as well, but if the opportunity arises there may be a chance to use the tree stands. By late August viewing the grizzly bears is mainly from platforms at the spawning channel. Knight Inlet Lodge strive to see the bears in their natural environment without having a negative impact on them.

Mr Boughen (Travelled Aug 2017)
It was wonderful to watch the bears in their natural habitat and the guides were all very knowledgeable and empathetic. One of the experiences offered from Knight Inlet was a full-day whale-watching trip in Johnstone Strait. We saw many Orcas, hump-back whales, porpoises, dolphins, seals and a sea lion, which came right up to the boat.
