Great Bear Rainforest
CNH Tours owners Heather Blenkiron and Marc Patry are embarking today on an 8-day small-ship cruise to explore the Great Bear Rainforest. Located on Canada's west coast, between the northern tip of Vancouver Island and the southern tip of Alaska, this rugged coastline is home to the largest temperate rainforest in the world.
We'll be embarking on a very comfortable 24 passenger catamaran and we'll be exploring remote coves, inlets and fjords. We expect to have close encounters with grizzly bears and black bears (the salmon are running - and the bears are congregating around the rivers). We hope to spot the elusive "spirit bear", a rare white form of the black bear, found only in these parts. We hope to spot plenty of whales, sea otters, orcas and more.
We will be offering our first Great Bear Rainforest trip at the end of August 2023 and we're familiarizing ourselves with the experience. We're here also to explore extension options in this remote part of the world, where First Nation communities have lived for thousands of years.
The trip details should be published on our website in the coming weeks. If you'd like to have advance notice, please do not hesitate to send us an email.
