This coastal black bear watching safari is a must for nature lovers and animal photography enthusiasts!

Local black bears spend the winter in a state of semi-hibernation. Come spring, they leave their dens and head for the closest food source: the ocean. At low tide, bears can be easily seen roaming the shore in search of rock crabs and clams.

During your safari, from the comfort of a zodiac, you will also have opportunities to view other wildlife such as seals, sea lions and bald eagles.

(Translated by Google) We didn't think we could see so many bears, so close. It's fascinating to see them return pebble after pebble to eat the tiny crabs hiding there! The zodiac approach allows you not to disturb them and to observe them for a long time.

To do absolutely!!

(Translated by Google) Postponed for one day given the disastrous weather, I don't regret a word in French so I understood almost nothing of the explanations, that's a real shame, French is a national language, tourist region......
