Our most popular trip! This two day trip features multiple stops as we wind our way through the endless maze of channels that penetrate the Great Bear Rainforest.

We’ll explore secluded beaches, scenic waterfalls & a remote anchorage where bears roam the tidal flats of an ancient volcanic crater. Spend the evening viewing bears and other wildlife as you soak in the mineral rich, steaming water of one of BC’s largest natural hot springs.

From the glacier-capped mountains of the fjords, to the spectacular white-sand island beaches of the outer coast, you’ll experience the incredible diversity of all the unique ecosystems within the Great Bear Rainforest. Watch for Bears as we pass the remote river estuaries, on the way to the feeding grounds of humpback & orca whales and the salmon-hunting wolves of the Outer Coast islands. At the day’s end, you can choose to go paddling, hiking, beach combing or just relax aboard with a glass of wine.
