Coastal Bear Watch from Tofino
Tofino, British Columbia, Canada
Travel by Zodiac along the calm and tranquil waters of Clayoquot Sound in search of coastal black bears who wander down to the water's edge to forage for food. Viewing from the water ensures an up close encounter with these fascinating creatures.
Floating along on a comfortable Zodiac, this coastal excursion gives you chance to get up close to the black bears which come out of semi-hibernation in May, flocking to the shores to search for food. Observe them as they swipe fish out of the water with large paws.
The Zodiac has a shallow draft which allows it to easily manoeuvre through the shallow bays off the coast of Tofino. The tour includes a Mustang floater suit, toque and gloves for the journey, as well as complimentary hot drinks on return. Participants should dress warmly, bring a camera, binoculars, sun glasses and sun screen.
The tour departs from the Marine Center in Tofino and lasts for 2.5 hours. Departure time is tide dependent.
