Great Bear Rainforest 2013 picture

Come along with us as we explore the magnificent fjords and spectacular islands of the Great Bear Rainforest on the British Columbian coast. We travel aboard the 68 ft sailboat Island Odyssey enjoying birds as well as both grizzly and black bears, whales, and possibly wolves among pristine watersheds of towering forests.

From Bella Bella, we cruise through the Queen Charlotte Strait to a backdrop of mountains and seascapes, and there is a good chance of Humpback and Killer Whales, Dall’s Porpoise and Pacific White-sided Dolphin. Brandt’s Cormorants nest on rocky shores, Harlequin Ducks bob in the sheltered coves, and Steller’s Sea Lions lounge on rocks. We have opportunities to walk through rainforest among giant trees, for songbirds and woodpeckers.

Finally, we marvel at the west coast fjordland, for stunning scenery and lovely rivers and estuaries. Our voyage along the world’s largest intact temperate rainforest ends in the coastal town of Bella Bella. This will be an unforgettable voyage to a wildlife rich region like no other!
