Sept 1st – Day 1 of the Grizzly Expeditions!

Our first Grizzly Expedition of the season was absolutely amazing!  A beautiful ride on our boat up to the stunning Bute Inlet. Once we got there we came across 10 Grizzlies, 3 of which were cubs! We also saw a massive Bull Elk with impressive antlers before heading back to Campbell River enjoying the sunset on the water.
