Physical Requirements
Easy / Moderate / Flexible
This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness although, should you choose to participate in every activity, you will be required to climb up and down a small three-rung boat ladder in order to board kayaks and zodiacs. Please be prepared for water landings and a series of short walks over potentially wet, muddy, uneven terrain. Kayaking will be an option available to guests. It is easy to learn, and we expect that most of our guests have little or no experi­ence. It does, however, take an adven­turous spirit.
Important Information About This Trip
While this adventure focuses on spirit bears and humpback whales, as well as black bears and grizzlies, our ship-based journey immerses us in one of the most magnificent natural landscapes on earth, which we will also experience through land-based exploration. It should be noted that spirit bears are rare, the coastal rainforest is very dense and sightings can never be guaranteed. We spend three days in the spirit bear area and one full day at the spirit bear viewing platforms which has, historically, been just about the right amount of time given the tight quarters and the most common weather conditions. The areas we visit provide the best chance for seeing these elusive creatures and our naturalist and crew are adept at finding them.
Getting There & Getting Home
We have pre-booked spaces for our travelers on flights from Van­couver to Bella Bella and from Prince Rupert to Vancouver (or the reverse direction, depending on the direction of your itinerary). These flight times are not determined until late spring. We will notify you at that time so you may book your arrival and departure flights in and out of Vancouver. Please note that the cost of these flights is not included in your trip fee and will be assessed separately.
