GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST
Join fellow women photographers on this spectacular journey into the protected waters of the north central coast of British Columbia – an area known as the ‘Great Bear Rainforest’. This stretch of coastline is a rich and unique ecosystem of impressive biodiversity – from the large marine mammals in the sea to carnivores, birds, and massive cedar and hemlock trees on land. It is home to grizzly bears, wolves, humpback whales, eagles, and the elusive, all-white Spirit Bear!
The ‘Island Roamer’ will be our home for eight days and seven nights as we explore the famed Inside Passage, stretching along the reaches of the Great Bear Rainforest, with the anticipation of seeing some amazing wildlife while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the central BC Coast. Each day, we leave the vessel for small boat excursions or to explore ashore, visiting various estuaries, and bear viewing sites. You will be flying into Vancouver International Airport then taking a shuttle flight to Terrace where our tour begins. As there can sometimes be unforeseen weather delays when traveling in coastal regions – to ensure that the group can set sail on time – we advise you to arrive in Terrace the day prior to the trip (Sept. 21st) and spend the night at an accommodation of your choice. Suggestions will be given to you upon booking. Please note, our guide will be picking us up at select hotels the next day.
