On Saturday, October 7th, I went on a Toba Inlet Grizzly Tour with Aboriginal Journeys out of Campbell River. It was my first time going to Toba Inlet and my first tour with Aboriginal Journeys as well. I had gone on the Bute Inlet Grizzly Tours many times before and had found them to be getting way too crowded for my liking. My last tour had seen our group sharing the viewing areas with more than 50 people and it was really starting to lose it's "wilderness" feel for me. This was why I chose to go to Toba Inlet this time. They have only been offering tours to Toba for a few years and only one company is allowed to go there (Aboriginal Journeys). I can say now I am glad I made the switch and will go back to Toba again next year. There were 12 people in our group the whole day and the guides were very firm about keeping us quiet and letting us observe the bears without disturbing them. We saw 8 or 9 different Grizzlies that day. They were all actively looking for chum salmon carcasses in the river as they attempted to fatten up before the winter arrives. Our guide with Aboriginal Journeys was Garry and he did a great job getting us to Toba in one piece and entertaining us and educating us along the way. Once we arrived at Toba Inlet we were turned over to Kenny and Benny, our guides from the Klahoose First Nation. We spent the rest of the day with them being shuttled to the different viewing areas on Klite River. All in all it was a great day! Here are my favourite images from my tour!
