Grizzly Bear Viewing Tours

Toba Inlet has some of the best bear viewing tours in BC. From Klahoose Wilderness Resort we travel by boat, past spectacular waterfalls watching for marine life, before arriving at our dock in Toba Inlet. From here we take a short bus ride to our viewing platforms tucked away in the rainforest of the Toba Valley along the glacier blue waters of the Klite River. Our Klahoose guides will get you as close to the grizzly bears as possible, while viewing safely and respecting the natural habitat of the grizzly bears. With six viewing platforms, we keep our groups small for the most intimate experience with the bears. Listen closely and you will  you will hear their heavy breaths mingle with the rushing water - it is an exhilarating and truly amazing spectacle that only a select few will have the privilege of seeing.


Xawgəs or Grizzy Bear return mid-August for the annual salmon run in Toba Inlet. A cycle that has taken place for a millennial on the traditional territory for the Klahoose First Nation people. Grizzly Bear Viewing Season: August 26 to October 10
