The Best Way to Explore the Great Bear Rainforest
- A Private Chartered Sailboat for Solitude & Flexibility
Our sailboat stops each night at a different secluded anchorage, surrounded by untouched wilderness. Most visitors stay at lodges where more people, vehicles, light and noise are part of the experience. Depending on tides, weather and location of wildlife, each day offers a choice of hidden coves and rain forest trails to explore. And by chartering a boat, we have flexibility to pursue the best wildlife experiences.
- A Small Group Ensures Intimate Nature Exploration
Enjoy the intimacy of our private sailing yacht, with a maximum of just 12 guests (though the boat holds 14). You'll get the full attention of our Expedition Leader and staff, and, most importantly, quieter and more personal nature experiences.
- Remote Private Kayaking Excursions
Enjoy quiet paddling opportunities in secluded inlets with no other visitors in sight. The only thing breaking the silence is the drip of the water from your paddle.
- Expert Naturalists & Guides
Our naturalist Expedition Leader provides
in-depthinterpretation of this region's rich natural history. The ship's captain and crew are deeply familiar with these fjords and forests and adept at spotting wildlife. We also spend a day with an indigenous Gitga’at guide in search of spirit bears. Though the bears are elusive and we can't guarantee you'll see one, our local guide will know where they have been spotted most recently, situating us for the best chance to see them. See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
- A Focus on First Nations & Conservation
The Tshimshian, Haisla, and Heiltsuk First Nations people have lived in the area for tens of thousands of years. We learn about their cultures and how important this remote and pristine wilderness is to them and their future generations. Conservationists and First Nations have been actively working together to protect this region that contains the largest remaining untouched temperate rain forest on the Pacific Coast.
