Kermode Bear Viewing and Discovery

A five-day quest in search of the rare Kermode or "Spirit" bears! The white phase of the black bear, called Spirit bear by the Kitasoo/Xaixais people, is found only in a small segment of remote British Columbia. The Spirit bears can be best seen in September during the annual pilgrimage of wild salmon to their spawning grounds. Based out of Klemtu and our cozy Coastal huts we will travel by motorboat exploring the temperate rainforest and ecological wonders of Princess Royal Island and surrounding islands. Guests will be able to interact with the abundant wildlife and cultural heritage of the region and will of course explore favourite haunts of the white and black Kermode bears.
