Wildlife & Scenery Tour - Bears, Whales, Dolphins, Seals, Sea Lions & More - North Vancouver Island, British Columbia
With the fantastic four days we spent with Orca Dreams (see posts here), we still wanted to see more, including the Grizzly Bears of Knight Inlet.
So, I booked a tour with professional photographer, Rolf Hicker. His company is Vancouver Island Tours, and he has a 12-hour Wildlife & Scenery Tour that includes Knight Inlet. And the best part is he takes a maximum of four people.
It was an epic day on the water, and though Rolf's tours are expensive because he keeps them small, it was worth every penny.
Today was the end of our trip with Orca Dreams. We would be leaving the camp around noon. But first, there were more adventures to be had.
We had a pod of Orcas to ourselves in the early morning fog, and then we saw more Humpbacks on our last excursion.
The experience was fantastic, and we're thinking a whole summer in the area may be in our future.

Today at Orca Dreams, we did four boat trips and saw lots of whales. Our morning fishing trip resulted in salmon for dinner, and we got Dungeness Crabs in the evening which we enjoyed as an appetizer.
It was a fantastic 55th birthday for me.

Kayaking and whale-watching were today's highlights. We were thrilled to see our first pod of Orcas. More details below.
