Bear Watching on Vancouver Island

Watch black bears live and play in Ucluelet, Tofino, Telegraph Cove, Campbell River, Port McNeill, and many other locations around the Island. With an estimated 7,000 – 12,000 black bears living in the region, a guided tour is a smart way to see these gorgeous creatures in their natural habitat, eating berries, snacking on salmon, or munching sweet grass.

See the Grizzly bears in the Great Bear Rainforest, Knight Inlet, Rivers Inlet, or Bute Inlet, with a guided tour by covered boat or floatplane from the north end of the Island. Experienced guides know the best spots to safely watch these massive brown bears in their natural habitat.

Whether you are an experienced or novice sea kayaker and/or hiker looking for a new and…
